As the 21st century dawns, a battle-hardened Authority turns its attention to a previously unchallenged class of villains–the invisible power brokers who manipulate the world’s political figureheads to advance their own selfish interests. The powers that be, however, didn’t get where they are by playing nice. They’ve made plans for every contingency–including teams of insanely powerful superhumans with sentient, city-sized, interdimensional spaceships. So when the Authority begins to seriously upset their hard-won networks of control, the backlash that results is as swift as it is devastating.But as bad as things get, these attacks are still comprehensible on a human scale. The same can’t be said for what is following in their wake. Taking over the groundbreaking title created by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, renowned writer Mark Millar is joined by a host of comics’ greatest artists–including Frank Quitely, Dustin Nguyen, Art Adams and others–for this second volume of Absolute Authority, collecting for the first time the uncensored, original pages of Authority #13-29, Authority Annual 2000 and stories from Wildstorm Summer Special! Also includes an all-new introduction by Tim Miller, director of Deadpool.
Warren Ellis is the award-winning writer of Transmetropolitan, Planetary, The Authority, and the writer and co-creator of the graphic novel RED, which was the basis of two major motion pictures. He is also the author of the NYT-bestselling novels Gun Machine and Crooked Little… More about Warren Ellis
“Turns the concept of superheroics on its head in loving, cynical fashion and tells a mean, fast story along the way.” — Publishers Weekly
