DC Comics is collecting the first 12 issues of WildStorm Productions' THE AUTHORITY in THE ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY VOLUME ONE, a 320-page slipcased, oversized (8 1/8" x 12 1/4") hardcover edition reprinting the run by Warren Ellis and artists Bryan Hitch and Paul Neary.



Here's how DC describes the book, which will arrive in stores in late August:



"In the twilight of the 20th century, a force emerged to protect the Earth from outside threats...and from itself. They were the front line. The final defense. The only hope. They were the Authority - exploding onto the scene to drop-kick the world into a new millennium and redefine the way we think about super-hero comics.



"THE AUTHORITY is hard-hitting, high-octane action with dizzying velocity - the story of seven super-powered individuals who vow to make the world a better place, making their own rules, answering to nobody, and taking no prisoners.



"Strap yourself in for three unforgettable adventures with super-hero iconoclast Jenny Sparks, the Spirit of the 20th Century, along with King of the Cities Jack Hawksmoor, the nanite-infused Engineer, winged Swift, the reality-altering Doctor, and the genetically-enhanced duo of Apollo and Midnighter.



"Super-terrorists? Interdimensional invaders? A godlike entity from outer space? Take your best shot. This is the Authority. Pay allegiance or get your head kicked in."



The collection will include extra behind-the-scenes looks at the book's creative process, including a full script by Ellis, plus design and supplementary material provided by the entire creative team.
