5.0 out of 5 stars Wildstorm's best World's End title! September 28, 2009
(No Spoilers)

Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning took The Authority, stripped them of everything, and then repeatedly kicked them in the stomach while they were down. That is the best way to describe DnA's run on The Authority. Mix that with Simon Coleby's dark and dreary artwork and you've got Wildstorm's best World's End title. I personally grew to dislike The Authority. When Warrne Ellis did his Stormwatch run, I heard rumblings about it but I had never cared for Stormwatch and doubted that I would regardless of how good the writer was. Then Ellis created The Authority from the remnants of Stormwatch and all of sudden people are talking about how Eillis created "widescreen comics" and how violent and controversial The Authority was. So I finally caved in and gave The Authority a try. And I was hooked. I even backtrack to Ellis' Stormwatch. Then Mark Millar took over and it seemed like the theme was, let's see how controversial I can be in order to top Ellis. That's where Millar lost me. I don't mind controversy as long as it doesn't seem forced. Add to the fact The Authority were becoming way too powerful. It was boring to read about them. When they took over the U.S. in Coup d'etat it was the first story I thought went along with The Authority perfectly. Having them taking control was not a matter of if, but when. And under the pen of Ed Brubaker it was great. Then Worldstorm happened and everyone was mad at Grant Morrison for not finishing his Authority run. Which I didn't follow at the time because I could care less about the team during that time.

Fast-forward to World's End and it is DnA's deconstruction of the team made me like them again. With most of the members depowered or missing, they actually made me feel sorry for the most powerful team in the Wildstorm Universe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. June 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An alluring premise to say the least, not many series were willing to make a post-apocalyptic world the status quo, back in the day. Unfortunately it was not as impressive as it could have been. There is a small need to have read the Number of the Beast story line, but not essential. Though certainly one of the smallest books in the series, the paper quality has been modernized so that colors look rich and vibrant(no more 90's quality paper stock). I must admit that the small size still ticks me off.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most underrated The Authority runs March 1, 2013
Just wanted to leave a quick note about this run because I truly believe it is injustice that it only has one rating. This is my favorite The Authority run hands-down. It places the team in a post-Apocalyptic world where you get full insight into not just the despair of their situation, but their relationships to each other, how they each cope as individuals, and how they still strive to make a better world. Great writing, great art. Pick it up!
