One Perfect Moment (times three): The Authority|
OK, I'm very late to the party, but I feel utterly justified in posting this (and making it so big) because, unless I'm mistaken, no one has posted any Authority bits yet. My opinion of Warren Ellis' work, particularly some of his later stuff, is mixed, but I think that his original Authority run with Bryan Hitch has him at the top of his game, and each of the three arcs has a Perfect Moment. (Big images follow. Apologies in advance for poor image quality and/or any fubars; first time posting this sort of thing to IJ.)

Captain Atom layeth the smacketh down.|
In further honor of Captain Atom getting a back-up feature in Action Comics, I thought I'd post some images from Will Pfeifer's Captain Atom: Armageddon. To put these images in context, after saving the earth from a giant kryptonite meteorite, Cap found himself blasted into the Wildstorm universe. He soon encountered one of that universe's two Superman equivalents, Mr. Majestic. Majestic attacked Cap without warning or provocation. ( Read more... )

Fulfilling My Own Request|
So since I heard that there was an awesome-tearjerky scene regarding Apollo and Midnighter (one of my favorite couples in comics) in the most recent run of The Authority I have been impatiently waiting for someone to upload scans. When I was at my local shop on Thursday, I decided to see if I could find it. And lo and behold, in the Authority #3 I found it. And it is everything everyone promised.

The Authority - Halloween Hijinks with the World's Finest Couple|
I feel an urge to spread some Apollo/Midnighter love, so here's a few random pretties from various places, plus a snippet from The Breaks, which is one of the other stories in the Earth Inferno and other Stories TPB.
For anyone not familiar, Apollo and Midnighter are part of the Authority, a team of superheroes who strive for a finer world by tackling not only supervillians and alien threats, but also the injustices that humankind perpetrate on each other. The two were originally conceived as Superman and Batman equivalents, hence the resemblance, with the added wrinkle that they're a canon couple. They're now married, in a wedding that took the rhetoric of "could they be more gay?"and considered it a challenge, and have an adopted daughter, Jenny Quantum, who's the spirit of the 21st Century. I am more than a little charmed by the notion that the spirit of the 21st century is being raised by two dads. And here's living proof that Apollo is like the best dad ever:
They also let their daughter smoke and wear ugg boots, but let's not go there.
