Title: "The Authority" Charity Art Auction Piece
Artist: Vejiicakes
Rating: G
Characters : Jenny Sparks, Apollo, Midnighter, The Engineer, Swift, Jack Hawksmoor, The Doctor
Description: It’s been ages since I’ve revisited The Authority! I participated in a Charity Art Auction, in which 100+ alumni produced art of their favorite superheroes to bid on. Apollo and Midnighter remain my main guys, but it seemed like a raw deal to stop there so I did the whole classic team: Jenny Sparks, Apollo, Midnighter, The Engineer, Swift, Jack Hawksmoor, and The Doctor will always hold a special place in my heart :)

Jenny/Jenny's cigarettes is probably one of the most canon ships. :)

This week's rec is a little more cheesecake pin-up (although certainly nothing by normal comic book art-standards) than I'd normally rec, but it has great lines and a really awesome gun.

Today's a set of Midnight and Apollo fanart recs that may fulfill your daily dose of normalcy and bad-ass action. First up, superhero action! Next up, hanging out as civilians.

I love the contrast between the two images, in terms of how we can see these characters.

Here's a cute little fancomic! Presenting one entirely logical explanation of the Midnighter's speeches, by whatistigerbalm:

Apologies for my recent absence, I hope to resume my (semi) regular posting schedule. :)

Two different Jennies, one cross-century smoking habit. :P

Today's set of recs also features some delicate line-work and a nice hand with the colors!

These two bits of fanart are some of my absolute favorites because they combine two great things: space + The Authority!

Apollo looks like a Greek god, and the Engineer looks like she is in the middle of being badass and amazing in SPACE. She looks like she's having a moment of absolute tranquility in the middle of conditions that could kill her, but that doesn't matter because she's too awesome to be bothered by things like lack of oxygen.


Enjoy! :D

I guess this week's theme is powerful people that fly and are awesome! I love the very geometric style on Swift, and how the artist appears to have captured a moment in time between the beat of her wings. For Apollo, I like how he seems peaceful, even though he's gathering up energy. Also, I really love vejita4ever's version of his usual outfit.

Here's two bits of fanart that I like for their super-saturated color and film noir feel. I'm especially a fan of the lighting on Jenny in the glow from her energy. Gorgeous, gorgeous color-work.

Jenny and the Engineer shamelessly abuse the Carrier's door-powers in this very cute comic. The embed option's text isn't readable, but you can go to the original at DeviantArt in order to expand to see the full text. :)

One gorgeous illustration of the Midnighter and Apollo at their wedding (I like these outfits so much better than their canon wedding clothes!) and one lovely Art Nouveau-inspired illustration of the Engineer.

Title: Hustle Rose
Author: pencilnecklace
Pairing: Apollo/Midnighter
Song: "Hustle Rose" by Metric

My Comments: I found this while idly searching YouTube for Authority fanvids, not really expecting to find anything. I have rarely been so happy to be proved wrong! This fanvid is fantastic. The excellent editing and timing make the images flow and feel dynamic, something that can be difficult to achieve when all you have to work with are still pictures. The images are taken from Ellis' Stormwatch through World's End and provide a nice summary of Apollo and Midnighter's relationship under Wildstorm. My favourite part is from 0:07-0:26 because I love the balloon scene from World's End so, so much and pencilnecklace truly makes it come to life.

(I hope the 'rec: vid' tag is all right; if not, please feel free to change/delete it.)

A very Jenny Sparks and gen set of recs!

Survivor's Sojourn by Indigo
Excerpt: "When he awoke the morning of the 31st, just before the last adventure, the last problem, the last crisis of the year arose -- he knew.

Jenny Sparks' number was up."

Notes: A slice of introspection by the Doctor about the death of Jenny Sparks.
