    Great stuff all around, and I want more! Hopefully this will fill the void left by The Phantom Stranger and Pandora getting cancelled and we finally have The Question in an ongoing! Read Full Review

    - I look forward to the next issue, I will see how the 2nd one goes and maybe add it to my regular rotation. So far it's a great story with powerful creatures and big battles, not to mention how great it looks. This issue overall is just a great start to a new series and makes me excited for what is to come for our latestaddition to the DC New 52 universe. Read Full Review

    All in all Trinity of Sin is off at a good start, despite some of the flaws found in it. It continues the tale of both Phantom Stranger and Pandora while finally giving us stories with the Question. If you enjoy it great, but I might need to read a couple more issues to see if this series is worth it for readers. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 15, 2014

    Trinity of Sin #1 is a solid start to this brand new series. While it's mostly setup, it does a solid job of introducing new and old fans alike to the characters, background, and villain for the series. I think a different artist would have been better to really give the book a bit more of an edge, but what we got was still good. If you like the previous series these characters were in, especially Phantom Stranger, give this one a look. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Oct 19, 2014

    Trinity of Sin #1 may feel like your standard first issue of a team book, designed to get inform new readers of who the characters are, but DeMatteis handles it very well. Pandora, The Phantom Stranger and the Question are some of the more unusual members of DCs roster and itll be fun to explore them going forward, with it being great to see that were not done with these characters yet.

    Infinite Comix - Max Dweck Oct 22, 2014

    Trinity of Sin #1 is a really good introductory issue that gives a crash course on the three protagonists. Unlike other team books, which have a lot of members and can't usually focus on more than a couple of them at a time, this seems like it will be a book that fully utilizes all three of its protagonists. With good lead characters, a good writer, and beautiful artwork, this series is not to be passed up. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 20, 2014

    As much as I wanted to like this book, the reason I know I wasn't all that into it was because I actually put it down and came back to it later.  I don't know if it was just because it was overly wordy or what because the book just felt a lot longer than it actually was and most of these characters were already taken away from me with their cancellation, so I need this book to be good.  I still have high hopes for this series, but sadly this first impression wasn't the best.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 16, 2014

    There's plenty of potential with this book now that the trinity are reunited and The Question is more of a focus. But this first issue doesn't do enough to realize that potential. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Robert Reed Oct 16, 2014

    Trinity of Sin#1 is by no means a bad book. It's a fair debut that features three interesting leads and an enigmatic foe. J. M. DeMatteis' writing already displayssome intriguing existential themes for the series to delve into, and Yvel Guichet's art shows that the series will be able to easilytransition between contemplative and action-packed. And whileTrinity of Sin #1 does a great job of balancing time between its leads, there's a bit to be desired in terms of the equilibrium between comic book action and the plot. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Oct 17, 2014

    Really, this is the first time an action sequence has felt like a chore to read. Even in the worst comics, action is at the very least entertaining. Here, the art (courtesy of Jason Gorder), which is actually pretty great, is masked by text. Unfortunately, it's also fairly shallow, though again, that may be more because of how hard it is to care about anything that happens in this book than actual issues with the writing.

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Oct 15, 2014

    Not enough of a character study to forgive the light plot, and not enough plot to offset some weak character traits, Trinity of Sin #1 is not the remarkable thought-provoker that so much of DeMatteis work to date has been. If anything, a more non-traditional approach, particularly in the art, might have transformed the story of these three historic menaces. Unfortunately, this one didnt do it for me. Heres hoping your luck with it is better. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Oct 17, 2014

    Ultimately, "Trinity of Sin" #1 doesn't so much introduce these characters as introduce the concepts of them. Their teamup is still intriguing, but DeMatteis may need to switch strategies in order to make the series more entertaining. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Oct 20, 2014

    DeMatteis did a fairly good job at narration and writing for this book and introduced pretty good villains for the trio to take on. With the exception of their turkey-vulture Big Bad, Guichet and Gorder do a fairly good job on art. However, while I'm not an avid nu-52 hater, I do think DC messed up bad when they made the Question a mystical entity and not a mortal investigative reporter and I continue to really miss Vic Sage and Renee Montoya. This is something that's not DeMatteis' fault, though. If you're an avid fan of any of the Trinity of Sin members in their current incarnations, you might want to pick this up. Otherwise, it's just okay. Read Full Review

    Not so much a mess as an easy to ignore, uninterested and thematically unimportant waste of $2.99. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Oct 15, 2014

    Fans of these characters will be a bit let down because this issue feels like it reads solely for readers who have no clue who any of these characters are. That's the big disappointment since DeMatteis did such a good job with THE PHANTOM STRANGER. It almost feels like a lighter, carefree book presenting a very light plot to the reader. The art is middle-of-the-road and doesn't help nor hurt the book. While this issue really didn't like up to its potential, there's still a bit of hope on the horizon. Read Full Review
