    Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger has been a blast from start to finish. Although the series ends with a loose plot thread or two, it can be expected that they'll be followed up on in DeMatteis's upcoming Trinity of Sin. The Stranger's personal story, or at least this chapter of it, is finished, and this was a lovely ending for him to go out on. Read Full Review

    Trinity of Sin: the Phantom Stranger #22 is an exciting issue. You will have a fun time seeing some of the references used in this issue. It also brings a sort of closer to what was happening in the eerie without feeling rushed when you remember those plot elements which were introduced and how were they resolved. You'd definitely want to check out the Future's End special and the new series that comes out in October. Read Full Review

    I'm really going to miss Phantom Stranger in his solo title, but what a way to bridge the gap between this and Trinity of Sin coming in October.  For this final issue we take a look at The Stranger's broken psyche and see how he'll have to overcome this in the future as he begins a new path to redemption.  It's really a beautiful issue with striking visuals and allows us to see the inner torment The Stranger endures on the reg.  It's hard to say goodbye, but this issue makes it a little easier and you'll definitely want to check it out.

    Obviously, with this being the finale, it isnt recommended for newcomers looking for a good jumping on point. Those of us who are reading Phantom Stranger will get a great kick out of this title as DeMatteis delivers a great send off for the characters solo adventures, and if Trinity of Sin can last even the same amount of issues that this series has then it should be a good thing.

    TRINITY OF SIN: PHANTOM STRANGER remains my favorite least favorite series. I love everything about the execution, but I just can't warm up to the idea of exploring the Stranger's backstory and psychology in the same way we want to map out the entire biography of a character like Superman or Alec Holland. DeMatteis is an excellent writer, but the Stranger can't help but become less interesting with every new detail we learn about him. Read Full Review
