Malibu Comics launches the Ultraverse line of comics in which it states that "Writers are the true enhancements in comics" (a pointed reference to the trend of publishing and marketing foil-stamped covers). Said writers include Steve Englehart, Gerard Jones, and Steve Gerber. Variant editions of the first issues are published with hologram covers.
The conclusion to Marvel Comics’ "Infinity Trilogy" is launched with Infinity Crusade.
Malibu Ultraverse launches "Break-Thru," the first company-wide crossover.
