CBR Review: The Authority: The Lost Year #4

I recently reviewed The Authority: The Lost Year #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The basic idea of this issue isn’t bad, but the execution is dull and haphazard as Giffen and Robertson cycle through a variety of scenes showing what’s happening in the world and how the Authority is reacting, but lacking any emotional impact. It’s all just going through the motions toward that end point where the setting can change and new adventures are to be had. Even the moral implications of the Authority’s actions are dealt with in a manner where the minimum amount of discussion is given before moving on. But, as I said, the end of this issue is done so well that it’s hard to blame them for wanting to just get there."
