"MAN DOWN" finale! The Trinity and Warlord have discovered Deimos' plan to use the Skartaran Time Weapon to reduce his enemies to dust-but time itself is not on our heroes' side! It's up to Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to save Steve Trevor, defeat Deimos and seal the breach with Skartaris before the entire world is consumed by magic powerful enough to melt millennia!

    That is not really the fault of the creative team, as much as of the editorial decision to bring an end to the book. True, it was never a must-read, as the three heroes all had their own books, which were the cores for any development of the characters. Overall, I enjoyed Trinity, though. It might have been nice to have had something change in their relationships to each other. Something that gave a reason for the series to end. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Austin Braun May 9, 2018

    I have been mostly rating this title high due to the art. Now I can finally say I have given this title a high rating for the story and the art. James Robinson finally knocks one home with the very last issue of Trinity. I recommend this issue to anyone looking to finish out the series, or for anyone looking for a big crazy shocker at the end of a story that concludes itself nicely. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 26, 2018

    Trinity #22 is a solidly entertaining read with DCs big three bringing down a powerful wizard despot to save a world not their own. The story is paced well, Deimos is made compelling, and the art is excellent. This one gets a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    I liked this issue and this arc overall. However, I am sad that this is the finale and that this title has come to an end. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Apr 25, 2018

    Thanks to it's structure of long-explanation-followed-by-flurry-of-action, Trinity #22 feels like an abrupt end to the arc which will probably read better in the trade compendium. 'The Search for Steve Trevor' isn't the ending Trinity deserved but at least the final issue ties up a few loose ends and doesn't fall prey to the mistakes that may be to blame for the series' decline and cancellation.

    This series was very up and down, aside from Manapul's spectacular art in the early issues. Its cancellation isn't a big surprise. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 25, 2018

    Another swing and a miss in a series full of them.  This issue and entire last two arcs felt uninspired which is a sin considering it's a book with DC's best and brightest characters.  Oh well, the Trinity is over and I don't think too many people will be upset with that. Read Full Review

    I didn't care for the issue. The book looks fantastic; I am really impressed by this art as I have been. But the writing does nothing for me. The story doesn't interest me that much and it is over reliant on dialogue. The issue ends up not being compelling. Read Full Review

    A boring villain with a boring and ridiculous motivation combined with a too-easy conclusion is uninspired and a sad ending to what should have been a stellar book. Read Full Review

    This was full of bad writing. First, Deimos recognizes the hackneyed villain trope of explaining grand, evil schemes and then proceeds to do just that. And then, for absolutely no reason at all, the writer decides to throw in this last minute thing about Batman poorly stealing an aging weapon from Skartaris and no one saying anything because they had a feeling they weren't done with Deimos. Yet, no one brought this up to the heroes that had just saved them, thus making Deimos' evil scheme that much more achievable. They could've just as easily had Deimos use an aging spell on himself and avoid this whole weird aside. This is a lackluster finale for this arc and a lackluster finale for this once-good series.
