5.0 out of 5 stars Let It Bleed 23 Sep 2010
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Stranded on our world c.2010 without the power to make the jump back into the Bleed, The Authority set about trying to find a power source to jumpstart the Carrier. Not finding a baby universe they settle on one of the new characters' which presents them with a moral choice - kill a few to save many. After much debate they make it back to the Bleed only to have the Carrier attacked by Lovecraftian horrors intent on eating it. They jump from the Carrier into the nearest universe, a place where The Authority in their reality has fractured into pairs and each are vying for absolute power over the world. And the battle to liberate this world from a power mad Authority begins...

Grant Morrison and Keith Giffen have dreamt up an epic plot for this great collection of characters. Jumping from everyday situations into abstraction has always been Morrison's strength as a writer and his enormous imagination is a perfect fit for The Authority's stories. The events rack up but never become convoluted or difficult to follow. Morrison pens the first two issues and the Giffen takes over seamlessly for the remainder of the series. He finishes Book One on a tantalising finale with the Carrier at stake and a weakened Authority under attack.

The artwork is sensational throughout. Gene Ha's work is superb as always while Darick Robertson's pencils are always gorgeous. Brian Stelfreeze, Trevor Scott and Jonathan Wayshak do some great work here too. The Authority's vast plotlines of parallel universes and larger than life battles serve to bring out the best in these artists.

"Lost Year" is a brilliant saga well suited to a superb series. Highly recommended for fans of The Authority and superhero comics. Roll on Book Two!

2.0 out of 5 stars Started well and then... ka-thunk. 20 Nov 2010
By Granthor the Barbarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Great, inventive story, and solid characterization couldn't save this graphic novel for me after the art went "off" in the middle. I'm not going to name names, but suddenly it looked like a howler monkey took over illustration. I give this a resounding "meh."

1.0 out of 5 stars Story okay but the art work killed me. 30 Aug 2010
By Wayne Nubile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The story was not that interesting but the "Mad Magazine" type art work killed this book. The lack of reality to the art work helped the lack of personality or character development to make this comic unreadable if not annoying. The art work started out well but then took a turn for the worse. To bad, I really like The Authority franchise.
3.0 out of 5 stars Last chance for the Authority. 15 July 2010
By Heath Rosenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Authority is a super-heroic team whose mission is to make the world a place worth living in, no matter the cost.

Unfortunately, the lightning-in-a-bottle series hit its peak during September 11. It has never quite managed to be as intense or over-the-top fun as it was when Warren Ellis or Mark Millar wrote it. Around that time, the publisher reigned in the ultra-violence that gave this vicious brotherhood its reputation.

In this chapter of The Authority's story, the team is trapped in a dead Carrier. They dip into some alternative universes for help.

The plot is interesting. The art is excellent if entirely inconsistent. The dialogue is the issue. Every character has the same voice, the same quick pointless Giffen banter present in all the author's books. Readers will find a challenge discerning the voices and might get confused about the relationships between the characters. The worst part is the excess dialogue is totally unnecessary to move the story forward. With master storytellers like Darrick Robertson and Gene Ha on art, the dialogue could have been totally absent and still get the story.

Fans of the Authority who have patiently waited for the return to ultra-violent amazement might give up after reading this book.
