Article by Gregg Katzman; Trinity #1 by Francis Manapul and Steve Wands

When DC Rebirth’s Trinity series was announced, what did you immediately expect from it? You know, aside from amazing artwork, because that’s obvious whenever Francis Manapul is attached to a project. The excellent cover revealed the three iconic heroes (Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman) and several villains reflecting in Diana’s sword. I don’t know about you, but when you have a comic featuring DC’s Trinity, part of me was expecting an epic blockbuster. After all, how many times have we seen these classic heroes save the world? It’s basically what we’ve come to expect at this point. I purposely avoided previews – I wanted to go into this one totally fresh. Would this be just like the many other team-up stories that started with pure action and set incredibly high stakes? Much to my surprise, that isn’t what happened… not even close.

DC Rebirth: This Week’s New Comics (8/24/16)

Article by Gregg Katzman

DC Rebirth has done an amazing job re-energizing my interest in the publisher’s fictional universe. The DC Rebirth Special was a brilliant way to begin the new direction and it’s so obvious that DC has a clear focus with each of these titles: celebrate what people love about these characters and teams. Go back to the basics, and then do something fresh with it. Don’t change things just for the sake of changing them. Instead, embrace the positive and run with it! So far, each and every title has managed to capture my interest; some more than others, obviously, but the fact that all of the titles have me wanting to see more proves that the publisher really has given this new direction everything they’ve got. Okay, I could go on and on about why I think DC Rebirth is a step in the right direction (you can read a coworker’s editorial about that here), but that’s not why you’re here. You’re here because you want to see what DC has to offer on this week’s new comic book day! So grab a drink, get comfortable, and prepare to get excited for brand new DC Rebirth issues!
