- Authority volume 1 number 1 came out in 1999 so they're one of ours!

The real reason I was even thinking about the Authority is the recent end, after 24 issues, of Warren Ellis's The Wildstorm, which is one of the best things I've ever read, bar none.

I often don't like Warren Ellis's work. I didn't like The Authority back in the day. Or rather, I didn't bother reading it, because it was clearly a warped Justice League, and I had no interest in warped Justice Leagues. To this day I have no interest. JMS captured my imagination briefly with Supreme Power but that was a weird anomaly for me. I frankly don't know why I took an interest in that. I think it might have been the art.

Speaking of art, I notice the original artist for volume one of The Authority was Bryan Hitch. Back then that name meant nothing to me. Of course Hitch went on to do a variety of things, one of which was a warped version of the Avengers in The Ultimates with Mark Millar. I have to believe his work on The Authority was a big reason why Hitch was chosen for The Ultimates.

Did you read The Authority volume one? Did you enjoy it? Do you think it's withstood the test of time?
