Writer Brian Azzarello and artist Lee Bermejo (the creators behind the acclaimed best-selling graphic novel JOKER) deliver a bold story in which readers get a glimpse into the mind of Superman's longtime foe, published for the first time in hardcover – with new, additional story pages, sketch material and more!

The High goes off on a rescue mission, but what he brings back on board eclipses any danger they've faced so far.
THE AUTHORITY #26
When Jack Hawksmoor chose to board the departing Carrier, he chose to hedge his bets. Now that his terrible secret has been exposed, the loss of trust far outweighs the recent loss of life…and the loss of loved ones. But there is no time for anger or mourning. They have reached their destination. Will The Authority find the help for their dying Earth that they seek – or will the end of their journey bring new nightmares?
