The Secret History of the Authority: Hawksmoor – Mike Costa

HarksmoorThis is definitely a departure from the Authority both in art and writing. The aggressive angles and thick lines certainly aren’t what you are used to. However, good colouration and a rapidly moving plot means you don’t dwell on the distinct lack of details.

The story also gets off to a bumpy start as Costa struggles with keeping all his balls in the air. A tale within a tale is an odd choice for what is a Hawksmoor prequel, not an origin tale. If you persevere you get rewarded with an original antagonist and a Jack that feels authentic.

This can’t compete with Jenny’s Secret History but it is a good effort. Thumbs Up!
