The Authority: Human on the Inside

 ATHI   (WildStorm, 2004)

™ and © WildStorm, an imprint of DC Comics

On-the-edge, butt-kicking super-team The Authority is not at its best in this graphic novel from screenwriter John Ridley and artist Ben Oliver: their leader, Jack Hawksmoor, is crippled, the Doctor has given in to his addictions, and the President of the United States resents the control the heroes have over the world. Having been reduced to little more than a ceremonial figure, the POTUS plants a traitor amidst the Authority to destroy humanity’s faith in its saviors; unfortunately, this plot may bring about the end of the universe. An engaging story, to say the least, but nothing is done to bring new readers up to speed: if you’re unaware of the Authority, you’ll have a tough time finding your way into this tale of insidious plans and cynical super-heroes.
