Marvel introduces a new concept in digital comics that is intended to enhance the reading experience by taking advantage of current multimedia technology. The first Infinite comic ever is a prologue to Avengers vs. X-Men, that more or less runs parallel to issue #0 of the series and leads right into issue #1. The issue focuses on Nova racing to Earth just steps ahead of the Phoenix Force as the cosmic entity comes for Hope Summers -allegedly.

There are some neat elements about this Infinite initiative. For example, it is easier for creators to focus the reader's attention in any part of the workspace; one corner instead of the other, the background instead of the foreground, or just the art instead of the dialog. The transitions also make for an entertaining experience, and they are the closest thing to actual animation. Specifically in this issue, Stuart Immonen and Marte Garcia produce some wonderful artwork that is extremely enjoyable. Not much story to talk about here, though, and that could be one of the minuses with this concept; the attention is so centered in the visuals that the writing seems to accommodate to them rather than the other way around.
