Warren Ellis’ New York Times bestseller, THE AUTHORITY, is given the Absolute treatment, as the critically acclaimed series is repackaged here in an oversize hardcover edition, complete with a beautiful slipcase featuring new art from acclaimed illustrator Bryan Hitch. ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY VOL. 1 contains exclusive behind-the-scenes material, including variant covers, concept sketches and scripts.
The Authority are heroes in only the strictest sense of the word. Ruthless and unforgiving, this group of insanely powerful super-humans face down countless menaces to Earth, protecting mankind with their cold version of justice. An invasion from an alternate Earth, an international terrorist who is laying waste to major cities, and a hostile alien intelligence who calls himself God all fall under their rule.
This is THE AUTHORITY. Pay allegiance. Or get your head kicked in.
Created by legendary writer Warren Ellis (THE WILD STORM, TRANSMETROPOLITAN) and artists Bryan Hitch (JUSTICE LEAGUE), Paul Neary (The Ultimates) and Laura Martin (WONDER WOMAN), THE AUTHORITY is considered one of the most groundbreaking titles in modern comics history. Collects issues #1-12, PLANETARY/THE AUTHORITY: RULING THE WORLD and a new story from WILDSTORM: A CELEBRATION OF 25 YEARS.
