INFINITE FRONTIER #0 serves up THE must-get DC Comics release of 2021, and the biggest DC one-shot since DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH! Get in on the ground floor of the post-DEATH METAL DCU here!

One of the things we’ve always loved about the DC Universe is the strong sense of continuity between the titles and time periods that have ran through it.

No other comic universe has been so interconnected, so multilayered, and while we love the hell out of the Marvel U, the DC Multiverse definitely is THE standard when it comes to following a tightly wound point A to point B of the history for that universe.

Whether it was the iconic CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, the events of ZERO HOUR, the universe-redefining INFINITE CRISIS and 52, or the more recent ventures into both THE NEW 52 and DC REBIRTH — when DC is firing at its best, it’s when it’s got the entire universe bringing the fire, and that’s exactly where we’re heading with INFINITE FRONTIER!

Taking place after the events of DEATH METAL, Infinite Frontier picks up on some of the glimpses at the future of the DCU we saw in FUTURE STATE, but is built more to be a fresh start, than a continuation of any of the above. In fact, the only thing we’d say is “recommended reading” going into FUTURE STATE is DEATH METAL, as that’s what sets up everything for this!

Where to start with INFINITE FRONTIER? Begin reading with INFINITE FRONTIER #0 this March!

Brought to you by the same team of writers who brought you DEATH METAL – Joshua Williamson, Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV – INFINITE FRONTIER features the holy trinity of DC’s biggest, and boldest scribes, as they literally rebuild the DCU after the shocking finale to DEATH METAL!

This epic one-shot kicks off a new banner that will be flying on all the DCU titles, and also launching several exciting new series, and in a way, is very reminiscent of when DC did their incredible REBIRTH initiative.

So, where to begin? The INFINITE FRONTIER #0 one-shot rolling out on 3/3/21!

Get the full scoop on INFINITE FRONTIER here with our THIRD EYE GUIDE TO INFINITE FRONTIER!

ENIAC #1 delivers a massive launch for an all-star new publisher that has VERY limited distribution in less than 200 comics worldwide!

At the height of World War II, the world’s most ingenious minds began a race to create a super-weapon capable of ending the war with the push of a button. One of those projects gave us the atom bomb…and another produced the world’s first supercomputer: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) – an immeasurably complex mathematical model that targeted the Axis war machine by calculating missile trajectories and troop deployments.

Everybody knows that. It’s real-life American history.

Or so we were told.

On August 6th, 1945, the United States dropped the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima.

Three days later, a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki… Only President Truman wasn’t the one who gave order.

It was ENIAC.

In the Allies’ determination to end the war, they had accidentally created the world’s first autonomous machine intelligence…which had quickly deduced that one bomb wouldn’t be enough.

But ENIAC’s real plan was only just beginning…

Now, 75 years later, an encrypted countdown has just been detected in Earth’s satellite network and mankind only has three days left before ENIAC launches every weapon in the planet’s nuclear arsenal simultaneously. With few options and even less time, the Secretary of Defense has just given two covert operatives the most important mission in human history: kill ENIAC.
