Written by Mark Millar and Tom Peyer; Art by Frank Quitely, Dustin Nguyen, Arthur Adams, Gary Erskine, Trevor Scott, Richard Friend, Jason Martin, Derek Fridolfs, and Tim Townsend; Cover by Nguyen and Friend. Just when the Authority is at the height of their power, in the blink of an eye they are shattered and defeated. Taking their place is a new team with the same powers, looking vaguely similar, but possessing none of the original team’s empathy, kindness, and humanity. How could this happen? And what was the fate of the original team’s members? All questions are answered in this fourth trade paperback collecting THE AUTHORITY #22-29.
