At last, the long-lost AUTHORITY series is being completed! Plotted by Grant Morrison and Keith Giffen and scripted by Giffen, this 12-issue, monthly maxiseries will fill in the gaps and explain where The Authority was just before "World's End," how they escaped from a horrifying alternate reality, and at what cost. With art by Darick Robertson (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, The Boys) and Trevor Scott (THE OUTSIDERS, BATGIRL), and covers by superstar Gene Ha (TOP10), this long awaited adventure is not to be missed.

    The conclusion to this issue leaves us on an interesting cliffhanger that might give the Authority an opportunity to indulge in the kind of widescreen superhero action that has always been synonymous with the title. In any event, Im happy to see Wildstorm bring some closure to a story that began years ago--and in a manner that isnt a huge step down from the work of Morrison and Ha on those first two issues.

    Obviously, I'm not sold on this story, but we'll see if Giffen can somehow make it his own. Read Full Review

    "The Authority: The Lost Year" #3 is, as I said earlier, not a bad comic, it's a mediocre one that would normally fade into the background with the rest of the mediocre comics that litter the racks had it not such a storied history and the potential of an unrealized alternate run to compete with. Perhaps the series will recover as time goes on and it distances itself from what might have been, and Keith Giffen distances himself from direct comparisons to Grant Morrison, but this issue doesn't inspire confidence.

    The Authority: The Lost Year #3 is a strikingly inept and poorly realized work by two creators whose work I usually enjoy. It's not interesting or fun, nor does it have the sense of being thought-out in any real way. Read Full Review
