    Checkmate holds the line. Cross it - and they'll take you off the board. Permanently. In this thrilling new ongoing series, the team behind the blockbuster OMAC PROJECT - writer Greg Rucka & artist Jesus Saiz - returns with a different spy agency for a different world. Infinite Crisis has changed the DCU, and Checkmate has shaped its hard-learned lessons into a new game plan.
    In Checkmate, it's all about the balance of power. Between Black and White; between human and metahuman; and between the familiar faces who have become its new Kings and Queens. It's also about the propaganda wars, black ops combat, and political manuevering that fuel Checkmate's critical missions - missions that take a grueling toll on the agents' day-to-day lives.
    First, however, they must prove their right to exist - to the U.N. And they only have hours to do it in this breathtaking first issue! For a signed edition, see the Dynamic Forces section of Previews.
