(EBOOK READ) The Authority by Ed Brubaker Dustin Nguyen
This was good but it s hard to follow up Ellis s arogance The boldness of the team does not really bear that much follow up
in 2019 this is a of the 2004 05 storyline Brubaker as always writes a fine story with broad strokes and nuances filled with politics and people beating each otherI found Nguyen s art not only cold but distractingIf this was paired with a better artist could easily be four stars While in a way I am getting tired of the what if Batman and Superman did uestion this book did a good job of preventing that from getting old though which character is from getting old though which character is might be a bit uestionable Batman is obvious A great continuation of The Authority storyline from volume 2 this miniseries hearkens back to Millar s work at the end of volume 1 a vicious mix of politics and good old fashioned knock down drag out action It s a shame that The Authority collections are scarce to nonexistent after this volume I d love to see what happens next Picked this up totally didn t seenoticeunderstand that this story is like a midway point in the Authority seriesworld WhoopsLuckily the world was really easy to jump right into I got what was going on right away I got the characters But because this was Vol 1 for me I just didn t care about them the right way as opposed to someone who is reading this as Vol 7 I l A 12 issue story that could have easily been trimmed to 6 I felt like none of the characters were likeable except Jenny not sure if that was Brubakers intention The art was ok but I ve seen alot better by Nguyen Hes one of my faves so was a little dissapointed but I guess this did come out a few ears ago I gotta say overall I was a

bit disappointed in this I expected to love this given the disappointed in this I expected to love this given the team involved The first half of the book is just everything turning to shit for The Authority now that they ve overthrown the US government It gets interesting once Jenny uantum gets involved In fact that turned out to be the only time I was interested Everyone else in the book was wri. The Authority has saved Earth from annihilation over and over again Now they want to rule the world From best selling creators Ed Brubaker and Dustin Nguyen comes this never before collected sagaFollowing the dramatic events of Coup D'etat the Authority. See serious work being done with these pertinent crucial political uestions I d like to see how the better writer that Brubaker pertinent crucial political uestions I d like to see how the better writer that Brubaker now and the better artist that Nguyen is NOW WOULD DEAL WITH THIS SITUATION would deal with this situation complex ways even as our world political situation has complicated ie gone to
hellOn a personal note as I am simultaneously reading Stray Bullets where NO one is pretty and sculpted or a personal note as I am simultaneously reading Stray Bullets where NO one is pretty and sculpted or or witty or super powered it is uite the contrast to this largely typical looking superhero comic I choose as Brubaker does the gutter over the gorgeous generally I thought this was something new shiny cover and all but it turns out it was part of a larger storyline back in 2008 ish as far as I can tellI also assumed this would be a good jumping off point for new readers Ehhh Not so much I mean I could make out what was going on and after a while I kind ofsort of figured out the general idea of what had happened before this story took placeButI really wish I d known this was a continuation of somethingThe gist is that The Authority has taken over the governments of the world because of something a war maybe that I m guessing went down badly in previous issuesAlas nobody likes a dictator Due to hinky spoilers a group of Americana themed super geezers comes out of retirement rejuvenated and leveled up by a mysterious benefactor ready to kick some Authority assThere s a bad guy his henchmen hench people that apparently has a lot of history with The Authority This leads to all sorts of nefarious plot twists and turns WheeeJenny Sparks is dead and her reincarnation has been adopted by Apollo Midnighter Because when I think snuggly father figure I think MidnighterRightAnyway Teenagers can be such a handfulAnd when they can control reality A much bigger handfulIt was good but I have a feeling it would have been better if I d known just a liiiiiittle bit about the characters and their backstory I kind of know about these guys but not enough to appreciate everything that went on Still Overall I liked this uite a bit.

CHARACTERS The Authority by Ed Brubaker Dustin Nguyen.
Tten to be such douche bags that I just didn t care what happened to them The story also felt really drawn I just didn t care what happened to them The story also felt really drawn like it could have been a six issue story instead of twelve Dustin Nguyen s art isn t as polished either He uses all these extraneous lines especially in his faces that makes everyone look strange almost chiseled in places He s really come along way in the 10 Lead Management For Electrophysiologists An Issue Of Cardiac Electrophy years since he drew this So what ifour favorite superhero group got to rule the guvamint In this one a group called The Authority created by Warren Ellis and Brian Hitch a Earth saving team is now ruling the USA as Ed Brubaker and Dustin Nguyen inherited this fact in their 2004 2005 storyline And I ll say I m ONLY reading this because I like Brubaker okay I also like the artwork of Nguyen a lot so this team is the draw for me So how s it going with governing body of The Authority Well they re doing good things but in order to accomplish this they must make decisions that take away some people s rights to do anything they damned please Enter Paul Revere and the Sons of Liberty pushing for a second right wing American Revolution One thing the left worldwide is trying to come To Terms With If terms with If Earth needs saving is deliberative democracy the rightfastest way to get things done such as shutting down all carbon emissions in ten ears just for one tiny example This is part of what this run is about how do ou do the right thing when not everyone agrees even when it appears to be in everyone s collective self interestI think this one volume collection of the BrubakerNguyen run produced 11 ears later in 2019 is pretty good over all In the first half everything goes to hell and so I thought that made sense
Jenny is the most engaging character but this is not saying much as I m not engagedis the most engaging character but this is not saying much as I m not engaged that much by either the heroes or the villains though as ou can expect the writing is gritty and witty in places and the art is darned pretty rhyming in a review ep Maybe sometime I will go back and read the Ellis run This one wasn t bad I d like to.
