Acclaimed novelist Greg Rucka (A Fistful of Rain) and artist Jesus Saiz, the creative team behind The Omac Project, reunite to tell the tale of Checkmate, a covert organization that exists to keep the super-powered factions in the DC Universe "in check" regardless of national boundary, affiliation or agenda. After the explosive events of Infinite Crisis and The Omac Project, the United Nations formed this new agency to bring down heroes and villains that get out of line in a world that's more dangerous than ever. Now Checkmate uses unique abilities to deputize human and metahuman forces throughout the world.
