    One final noteworthy occurrence is the placement of all of the book's adverts at the back of the issue. I didn't notice their absence as I was reading the main story, but was heartened once I realised that the ads had all been collected in one place. Advertisers take note: it didn't stop me flipping through all the ads anyway - the All-Star Superman hardcover is a must-buy, and I'm going to have to restrain myself from purchasing the Absolute edition of Long Hallowe'en. I wonder if the publisher was only able to get away with this because all of the adverts were in-house, but it's definitely an approach that I'd like to see taken again in future if it's feasible.

    Ill buy the third issue of The Authority when it comes out a year from now (or whenever its been scheduled) because its still a well-written Morrison work that now has an obvious Postmodern aspect to it. However, this second issue indicates that its not the narrative approach that I thought I was going to be getting after the first issue (and thats a shame). Read Full Review
