    It's not a jolly issue, but the team-building is gorgeous. Diana, Bruce, and Clark reminisce about the concept of time. To each of them, time is so different; however, to the mortal, the goddess, and the alien time is their most common factor. For all of them, for all their power, their might and love, time still takes everything away. Being the most mortal, Bruce at age 10 understood what time meant earlier than anyone. And so he wants to help Deadshot. He will, we trust him. And his team trusts him. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Justin Butler Dec 29, 2017

    This is a fantastic issue to read as the sun sets on 2017. Will this live on as one of the greatest one-off stories in DC's catalogue? Probably not; but it is definitely a pleasant read. Read Full Review

    Although the trinity saves the day with the help of Deadshot, they were unable to find Zoe, however Batman makes a solemn promise to him that they will find her as the issue ends on a bittersweet comment from this villain. All in all, it was a well written issue with some strong dialogue and characterisation from Rob Williams and some killer art from V. Ken Marion who once again captures these legends well.

    Even with Deadshot, Trinity lands a bit off target. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Austin Braun Dec 28, 2017

    Rob Williams ends his run on Trinity with a one-and-done that feels just a little too big. Connecting to a story from a year and a half ago doesn't make for good storytelling unless it shows itself in a big way later on like Doomsday Clock. Trinity #16 is a step up from the last arc of Trinity, but in the grand scheme of things falls short where Manapul was so strong. I can honestly say I'm excited to see James Robinson's work on Trinity, even though his work on Wonder Woman isn't quite as strong as Greg Rucka's. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Travis Meidell Dec 21, 2017

    This New Year's Eve story featuring the Trinity looked to be something special but sadly fell apart with a plot that got a little too big for its own good. However, the art team delivers, and if you can look past a few plot holes, you'll find an enjoyable read that will be wholly forgotten next week. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 20, 2017

    This was a nice little New Years issue that involved a neat team-up, great art and little else.  While it didn't feel important, it didn't make me angry either.  There is something to say about that. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 20, 2017

    It's a definite improvement over the previous arc, but it's still lacking quite a few elements to make it fully work " including closure, which is kind of a problem for a done-in-one. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Adil Syed Dec 22, 2017

    Not a lot of holiday spirit or payoff in this one shot story. It feels like a missed opportunity because this is a team book and Deadshot's relationship with his daughter is one of the more complex parent-child relationships in the DC Universe. I'm interested to see what a new creative team will bring to this series starting in 2018. Read Full Review
