DC hasn't wasted any time, announcing that writer Joshua Williamson and artist Xermanico will helm the six-issue Infinite Frontier limited series launching out of March 2's Infinite Frontier #0 64-page special

The new series was announced on the special's last page checklist. 

"In Infinite Frontier #0, when our heroes saved the DC Multiverse from Perpetua in Dark Nights: Death Metal, everything was put back where it belonged...and we do mean everything!" reads DC's description. "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. The story isn’t over! Infinite Frontier #0 was just the beginning!"

Infinite Frontier will launch June 22, according to DC, with Mitch Gerads drawing the covers. 

"In this summer event, 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," continues DC. 

"There are others, though, that would rather remain hidden than explain themselves, like Roy Harper, a.k.a. Arsenal, a man who should be dead now is not. Plus, what does all this mean for the DCU's place in the Multiverse? On opposite sides of a dimensional divide, both Barry Allen and President Superman ponder this question. Not to mention the Darkseid of it all! Or a team of Multiversal heroes called Justice Incarnate!"

DC says the brand-new event "has one foot in the past, but both eyes looking forward to a future that they hope will remain as bright as it seems!"

Infinite Frontier is bringing about a lot of changes to the DCU. Check out Newsarama's field guide to the new DC Universe.

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
