Within the past 5 years DC Comics has released a multitude of books under their “Rebirth” and later their “DC Universe” line of books. Their latest is the “Infinite Frontier” series that has had a multitude of books launched and relaunched from them. One of these latest books is the titular series “Infinite Frontier”. It was written by Joshua Williamson (best known for The Flash) and drawn by Xermanico, Jesús Merino, and Paul Pelletier. The cover of the issue is drawn by Mitch Gerads. The cover depicts President Superman and Flashpoint Batman, as well as a mysterious figure, all on a backdrop reminiscent of Crisis on Infinite Earths.
As always, the review will be judging the comic based solely on the contents within the issue itself, disregarding any previous issues, and instead judging it on its own merit. Luckily, this issue lives up to any expectation one could put on it.
It could just be this writer’s bias, but this issue was fantastic. Not only did it contain Infinity Inc. (which is a welcome addition by most comic fans, as well as anyone who has enjoyed the recent CW Stargirl show), but it contains a surprise appearance by a character heavily featured on another CWverse show (not being named here, so go read the issue to find out). The writing is just absolutely marvelous and reminds me of the classic JSA-JLA team ups, especially the one between the JLA, JSA, and the All-Star Squadron. Williamson is one of the best writers of today and improves every single book he is brought upon.
Even with the inflated price of $4.99, I would suggest this to anyone and everyone who reads comics (or even just to those with a passing interest in Stargirl). It is an absolutely amazing issue that hooks you right in and makes you want to read the rest of the 6 issue miniseries.
