The Authority Volume 1 Hardcover is a beautiful reprint of the old Authority books. It comprises volume #1-12 of the series and is a great introduction to the comic books. The hardcover edition features a slip jacket with beautiful artwork, and the cover itself with a whole other artwork.

After the sludge-fest of the 90's and some early draft of the concept in Stormwatch, Ellis & HItch bring their idea in full stride with The Authority: A mature superhero team with a very human & "realistic" behavior strongly contrasted with their demi-god capacities. A must read. The edition is on top of it beautiful bound, looks fantastic; its size making it a pleasure to re-read again & again.

I've read some complaints about the binding in this one, and they're right. It does take a time for the book to adapt, but after some time reading it you'll realize it'll soften up, turning it into a really comfortable book.

It is what is expected from the first 12 issues of this comic book: pure awesomeness, visuals and words from Hitch and Ellis. I'm looking forward to Volume 2.
