Sometimes change is a good thing. But usually, change comes with resistance as it means embracing something new that is different and could be uncomfortable. In the long run, you could look back and see that it was for the best. This is the pep talk that I am giving myself while I tell you about DC’s Infinite Frontier #0.
This 64-page one-shot comic book will see the DC Universe enter its next phase this March. It will feature the most creative and innovative storytellers in comics that will be a launch point for new stories, characters, and creative teams for 2021 and beyond.
Infinite Frontier #0 follows the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal. During the first two months of 2021, DC’s Future State will give us a look at what could be a future for the DC Universe. Then in March, Infinite Future launches what will be our current day storylines. You can check out the main cover of the series by Dan Jurgens and Mikel Janin down below!
In addition, there is a card stock variant cover by John Timms that you can also take a glimpse at!
Here is the list of creative teams for Infinite Frontier #0:
Joshua Williamson, Scott Snyder, and James Tynion IV with John Timms
Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez
Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad with Alitha Martinez
Geoff Johns and Todd Nauck
Joshua Williamson and Alex Maleev
James Tynion IV and Jorge Jiménez
Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Jamal Igle

Along with the creative teams that are listed above DC also gave us a summary of some of the stories that this issue will serve as a catalyst for new series and storylines throughout 2021:
An unthinkable, unexpected attack by the Joker makes him the target of a worldwide dragnet with ex-cop Jim Gordon in hot pursuit in the ongoing series The Joker by James Tynion IV and Guillem March
Spinning out of her breakout appearances in Future State: Wonder Woman and Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman, a young Yara Flor begins the search for her destiny and connection to the Amazons
It’s orientation day at Titans Tower as Tim Sheridan and Rafa Sandoval introduce a new group of teen heroes (including the future Red X) to the original New Teen Titans, setting the table for the duo’s Teen Titans Academy series in March
The adventures of the Justice League continue (beginning with Justice League #59), now written by Brian Michael Bendis with artist David Marquez, with new JL members, including Black Adam, Hippolyta, and Naomi
Wonder Woman ventures into the “godsphere,” creating an exciting new storyline by Becky Cloonan, Michael W. Conrad and Travis Moore, continuing in March’s Wonder Woman #770
Award-winning writer Geoff Johns and Todd Nauck tell an all-new Stargirl story
I’d like to say that I am excited about this, but I am not. Currently, with DC in 2021, I am taking a “let’s see what happens” approach. I really believe that the last thing we need is a Joker title, as I think his character needs a break. After what Bendis did with Superman, I do not have much faith in him taking over Justice League. Especially with some of the new members that are being added. Unlike Rebirth, this doesn’t really give me a hope that DC has a clear direction in where they want to take the DC Universe.
