The DC Universe has undergone many changes over the past ten years, often rebooting characters and concepts. Sometimes these changes bring in new fans and frustrate long-time readers, but it appears that DC Comics has found a perfect balance in their latest phase with the releases of March’s Infinite Frontier #0.
The 64-page one-shot is less of a reboot and more of a refocusing, intended to usher in a number of new creative teams on core title and set “…the table for new tales, talent, and characters for 2021 and beyond.”
The new initiative follows directly after DC Future State and Dark Nights: Death Metal which expanded on the DC Multiverse, but did not jettison the classic characters that fans know and love.
Writer Joshua Williamson sees Infinite Frontier as a new beginning when “We’re taking the aftermath of Dark Nights: Death Metal and combining it with the best things we love as storytellers about the DC Universe, resulting in bold, fun, and exciting new directions.” Some of the talent lined up for the special includes: Williamson, Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, John Timms, Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez, Becky Cloonan, Michael W. Conrad, Alitha Martinez, Geoff Johns, Todd Nauck, Alex Maleev, Jorge Jimenez, Phillip Kennedy Johnson, and Jamal Igle.
A number of new story lines will also directly spin out of Infinite Frontier #0 such as: Tynion IV and Guillem March’s world-wide Joker hunt, Tim Sheridan and Rafa Sandoval’s Teen Titans Academy series, Bendis and Marquez’s take on the Justice League (starting in Justice League #59) including new JL members Black Adam, Hippolyta, and Naomi, Cloonan, Conrad, and Travis Moore’s Wonder Woman, and Johns and Nauck’s all-new Stargirl story.
Infinite Frontier #0 will be available on March 2 in a regular version with a cover by Dan Jurgens and Mikel Janín (priced at $5.99) and a variant card stock cover by John Timms (costing $6.99).
