2.0 out of 5 stars Crap realities, 18 Jun. 2010
This review is from: The Authority: Harsh Realities (Paperback)
I love "The Authority" series, it's a superhero franchise I don't think is cheesy or stereotypical in the same way I think of Superman or Spiderman as. It's fresh, has great ideas, and contains some of the best writing in comics today. That said, it's had a couple of poor books. "Human on the Inside" had poor art and poor writing. "Harsh Realities" has poor writing though the art isn't as bad.

If you're familiar with Authority books you'll know that bad guys from another dimension threaten Earth with vast armies and the Authority battle them to win the day. Same thing happens in this book. Utterly uninspired. The bad guys lose, the Authority wins. It's also annoying as those who know who the characters are have to endure a whole issue reintroducing the characters and their powers.

Like I said it's a fantastic series and for those wanting to see the brilliance I'd suggest Warren Ellis's "Relentless", Garth Ennis' "Midnighter" and "Kev" series, along with Mark Millar's "Jenny Sparks: Secret History of the Authority" and Ed Brubaker's "Revolution". They're all awesome, unfortunately "Harsh Realities" isn't.
