CBR Review: The Authority: The Lost Year #3

I recently reviewed The Authority: The Lost Year #3 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "It’s not that this comic is bad, it’s that it’s not great, not even good. It’s an average, mediocre superhero comic that would barely warrant publication on its own merits let alone as the continuation of a story that began over three years ago and built up a mystique around it. The Lost Year doesn’t just have to compete with every other comic on the shelf, it has to compete with the imagined quality of Morrison and Ha’s run had it not died after two issues, a task that would be difficult for most comics, let alone a tepid issue like this one. Is that fair? Perhaps not, but it’s the truth."
