Kev Hawkins is a Special Air Services corporal turned assassin,
called in by the British government when they want someone
removed. The Authority are Earth's last line of defence, known
and feared across many galaxies and dimensions. Hawkins' new
assignment is to find and eliminate The Authority and, oddly
enough, his task is easier done than said. An awkward partnership
is forged as they set out to save the planet from certain,
alien doom. Can they succeed before The Midnighter uses Kev's
head as a hood ornament for the Carrier? Later, Apollo and
Midnighter are paired with their favourite homophobic SAS
operative. Together they must help appease an alien armada
bent on destruction and genocide that stands poised to assault
the planet Earth...
fact that Kev is an Authority graphic novel
is neither here nor there. This story doesn't really focus
on the superheroes, instead it revolves around one specially
trained assassin called Kev. Kev is one of the planet's most
unlucky individuals - having been booted out of the Special
Air Services after a prominent MP was killed on his watch
by his mates tiger. Now the government employ his services
as a top secret assassin - someone who cleans up when the
government wants someone to disappear.
only is this graphic novel incredibly well illustrated, but
it also has one of the funniest story lines I've read in a
long, long time. Kev is a baffoon, an unluck individual who
would be better suited to running his own knitting shop than
being an assassin. Unfortunately, while he is a bit of a fool,
he's very good at killing people.
constant homophobic remarks to the leather clad Midnighter
and the Nazi poster boy Apollo are laugh out loud funny -
especially as most of them are accidental and the two of them
could wipe him off the face of the Earth in a heartbeat.
of The Authority will love this as it injects something
new into their universe, while those who have never read an
Authority story before will be able to slip straight
into their world without feeling lost.
