THE WORLD NEEDS WATCHING Acclaimed writer Greg Rucka (WONDER WOMAN, GOTHAM CENTRAL), artist Jesus Saiz (OMAC PROJECT, BIRDS OF PREY) and others craft a tale of action, intrigue and betrayal set in the DC Universe. In the wake of INFINITE CRISIS, the world remains a dangerous place, with new metahuman threats and political battles spiraling out of control at any given moment. There is a desperate need to hold the line against destruction. There is a need—once more—for Checkmate. Rechartered by the United Nations and governed by a “Rule of Two” that ensures joint partnership between human and metahuman leaders, the covert operations agency acts as the intelligence intervention force seeking to establish order and balance in an increasingly unbalanced world. With core members Green Lantern, Mister Terrific, Fire and Sasha Bordeaux, Checkmate is a formidable group—but will they be able to deal with the rising threats while contending with their own internal moral battles? Collects CHECKMATE #1-12.
