When our heroes saved the Muliverse from Perpetua in Dark Nights: Death Metal, everything was put back where it belonged...and we do mean everything. All the damage from all the Crises was undone, and heroes long thought gone returned from whatever exile they had been in. Most of them, at least. Alan Scott, the Green Lantern from the Justice Society of America, has noticed some of his allies are still missing in action, and he’s determined to find them. There are others, though, who would rather remain hidden than explain themselves, like Roy Harper, a.k.a. Arsenal, a man who should be dead but now is not. Plus, what does all this mean for more

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jun 23, 2021

    Xermancio did something really cool with the art in this Infinite Frontier #1. When Flash makes it to Earth Omega, he meets a big bad who I won't mention, but his presence makes Flash cycle through different versions of this meeting that have taken place over the multiverse. Or at least that's how I interpreted it. Xermancio conveys this by illustrating in a different art style in each panel that passes. It's reinforced by different lettering styles as well. It was really well done and I'm not sure if I've seen something like that in a comic before. At least not anything I can remember.  Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jun 22, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #1 is a love letter to the nearly infinite possibilities of the DC Universe, boasting a wide cast of characters and hinting at new paths for familiar faces. Given where the first issue leaves its characters, this is only the beginning of the journey. But it's a journey I am more than willing to see through to the end. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Perry Jun 22, 2021

    Fans of DC Comics should be losing their minds at the things happening in Infinite Frontier and the quality it brings to the table. Williamson and Xermanico seem to be off to the races with a better sense of the DC Universe than many creators in recent years. Now it's only a question of how these situations might develop, and what exciting developments they might bring us with these characters. Read Full Review

    Williamson provides an excellent balance of the old with the new in an easy-to-understand package. I can't recommend this issue enough and hope anyone whose been on the fence with DC COMICS as of late decides to jump back on board. I think you'll leave INFINITE FRONTIER #1 excited for the future of the company and I havent felt that way for a long time. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless!

    This new miniseries by Williamson and Xermanico isn't a traditional event comic"there's no earth-shattering threat yet"but it feels like the spine of everything that's been going on in the DCU and will feature a huge cast of characters trying to unravel its mysteries. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jun 22, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #1's slow-burn spooling of its myriad subplots may hinder it a tad when contrasted against the larger narrative, but make no mistake: this is a joyful celebration of all the things that make DC great. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 23, 2021

    The story is well told. Williamson writes a great script. The art is fairly good as well. It does all feel a bit half baked. I just hope that there are enough ideas put forth and good storytelling to make this a worthwhile journey. Read Full Review

    Click on the above image to view the full-size page in another tab.The artwork by Xermanico is solid, apart from a few oddly thick outlines here and there, where the inks are strangely heavier for no apparent reason. The flow of the action sequences is fantastic, however, and the colors are suitably vibrant throughout.If you enjoyed Infinite Frontier #0, you'll want to continue to pick this series up. It's still unclear just where this story is going, but it's been one heck of a ride so far and seems likely to continue to impress. Thankfully, the great character scenes more than make up for the meandering pace. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jun 24, 2021

    Reading this book, I was a little confused by the timing if I am honest. Heroes from across a multiverse coming together to take on. a big bad does sound a tad like the recent Dark Powers Vampi book and it's sister book featuring Red Sonja. That said, I am not quite sure why, but I am quite hopeful for this little event. Maybe it's the lack of Batman for a change or maybe its because we will finally get somewhere with this whole multiverse bit that get us back Power Girl. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 22, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #1 feels big, but a lot of that isn't because of the actual story, but the shock and awe of the moments.  That said, those moments grabbed my curiosity, but I will need some more explanation and story for Joshua Williamson to get my attention going forward. Read Full Review
