Dudley Datson and the Forever Machine written by Scott Snyder with art by Jamal Igle and Juan Castro and colors by Chris Sotomayor—Throughout history, the world’s greatest engineers have tried, and failed, to create the perpetual motion machine – a machine that could open doorways through space-time and other terrifying realities. But what if a perpetual motion machine had been created? A machine this powerful would need to be the world’s most guarded secret. And for as long as it has existed, “the Forever Machine” has been pursued by the Needle’s Eye, a group of the rich, powerful and nefarious who seek to use it to fulfill their own desires…

Enter Dudley Datson, a science-loving geek who goes to a school for gifted kids in Brooklyn, NY. His closest friend is his science teacher, Dr. Adara Shae. She’s brilliant and well known around the world, doing a residency at Dudley’s school, and recognizes his promise. She’s also the current protector of the Forever Machine…

After the Needle’s Eye catches up to her, a dying Dr. Shae passses the Forever Machine to Dudley. And where the machine goes, its guardian mechanical dog Daedalus follows. Full of gadgets and tricks, able to speak, Daedalus becomes Dudley’s protector as they struggle to keep the Forever Machine away from the Needle’s Eye.
