By Albert Ching Thursday, May 20th, 2021

On DC UNIVERSE INFINITE, there are comics being added and fun community events taking place each and every week. In this series of roundups, we let you know what's new and worth your attention.

It’s that time again—a new issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point is on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE! And while you’re reading Batman’s latest exploits on the Island and excitedly redeeming your digital code for an in-game item, just wait—there’s more! A lot more, actually, including the first solo Punchline story! Keep reading for everything new on the service this week, plus highlights from the DC Community.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point

Batman versus Snake Eyes. Batman versus Snake Eyes! Batman! Versus! Snake Eyes! It’s happening this week in Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #3, as the Dark Knight tangles with G.I. Joe’s silent but deadly ninja. Here’s a deeper look at the conflict, featuring all manner of insight from Batman/Fortnite writer Christos Gage and artist Reilly Brown. And don’t forget that reading the issue with your paid DC UNIVERSE INFINITE subscription will get you a code for an in-game item, specifically Catwoman's Grappling Claw Pickaxe!

DC Digital First Comics

In Truth & Justice #6, Brandon M. Easton and Jahnoy Lindsay’s three-part story comes to a close as Superman takes on one of his most vexing challenges—the prison system. Over in Sensational Wonder Woman #6, writer Alyssa Wong and artist Eleonora Carlini welcome you to a Gotham City gala! Will supervillains show up? (Yes. They sure will.) Then, in Represent! #4 by writer Nadira Jamerson and artist Brittney Williams, a young mother struggles physically after the birth of her daughter, but can’t find a doctor to advocate for her health.

New Comics

It may get no more metal than Dark Nights: Death Metal Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! #1—that’s right, three X-es in “Exxxtreme”—a one-shot Dark Nights: Death Metal tie-in featuring Lobo-centric stories by Frank Tieri and Tyler Kirkham, Becky Cloonan and Rags Morales, and Sam Humphries and Denys Cowan. Meet…the Batman Who Frags. And DC’s biggest breakout character of 2020, the Joker’s partner-in-crime Punchline, gets the solo spotlight in the Punchline #1 one-shot by James Tynion IV, Sam Johns and Mirka Andolfo that explores how a teenager was radicalized into joining the Clown Prince of Crime’s chaotic cause and enlisting in “The Joker War.” Plus, can a “reformed” Maxwell Lord help Diana against Count Vertigo in Wonder Woman #766 by the Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass team of writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Steve Pugh?
