    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Dec 23, 2016

    As this arc nears its end, I am excited to see where Manapul will take it next. Mongul's reveal at the end means we will most likely get a pretty action-packed next issue. However, the important thing is the groundwork that Manapul has been laying down here. He has made this Trinity grow together as they explore each others' weaknesses and insecurities. The bond that they have recreated here in this arc can only help to make for even better stories here on out. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Dec 22, 2016

    The ending ofTrinity #4 reintroduces a classic DC Comics villain that has previously been one to plague the heroes. We won't spoil who makes an appearance, but he's a longtime enemy. But it also begs the question, why is he involved? There doesn't seem to be a reason to all of this apart from finding a resolution to the trio's previous internal problems. Hopefully the next issue begins to explain why this is all happening. And also, we'd love an explanation as to how Poison Ivy became involved with this other villain. But aside from those questions, this issue is a great read if you're looking to get to know the Amazonian a little better. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Dec 21, 2016

    Trinity #4 is a great issue, and even if the series remains a bit low-key and introspective, it offers solid examinations of its icons while still maintaining an intriguing and engaging mystery at its core. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Dec 21, 2016

    An excellent fourth installment to one of Rebirth's richest books, Trinity #4provides an enjoyable immersion in Wonder Woman's world. Lupacchino's storytelling methods may require an additional read to fully appreciate for some, but the investment is rewarded with excellent layouts, scenery, and character work. Four issues in, Trinity remains one of the easiest decisions on the rack. You should be reading this book. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 21, 2016

    As the issue comes to a close, we’re left with the official reveal of the true mastermind behind Poison Ivy’s scheme. Those familiar with “For the Man Who has Everything” likely won’t be surprised, but regardless, the conclusion sets solid expectations for what’s to come as the “Better Together” arc begins to wrap up. While this isn’t greatest issue of Trinity to date, it’s certainly an excellent, worthwhile and essential read for anyone who’s a fan of Batman, Superman, and especially Wonder Woman.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 23, 2016

    Trinity #4 was a solid but flawed entry into this series featuring Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Getting a better idea of who Wonder Woman is and how she is a much more grounded character than most people give her credit for was enjoyable to see play out. At the same time the main plot of this story continues to move at a snail's pace that gives us very little reason to feel that our heroes are in danger. This lack of urgency keeps Trinity's first story arc from being as engaging as it could be. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Dec 21, 2016

    In conclusion, Trinity #4 is a solid issue. It moves the story forward, reveals the primary villain, and creates intrigue for subsequent issues. The art is pleasing to the eye and the narrative is fair. Trinity has been an incredibly stunning title thus far. As a result,Trinity #4was likely held to an unfairly high standard. In comparison, for this reader, it was a step down from the previous issues. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Matthew J. Theriault Dec 21, 2016

    It will be interesting to do the same for Manapul's take on the Trinity once the series has made more significant progress. I'd love to find that he'd emphasized certain aspects of these familiar origin stories in ways that later pay off in his characterization of Clark, Bruce, and Diana. Already its evident how his view of Superman differs from that of Alan Moore's, and all of themuch attention and intention he's poured into Trinity thus far, it'd be a challenge and a joy to squeeze out of the series all the meaning he's put into each and every panel.

    Comicsverse - Anika Hossain Dec 22, 2016

    TRINITY is notable for its in-depth character analysis of DC's iconic superheroes, and TRINITY #4 did a great job in the characterization of Wonder Woman and the artwork of her beautiful homeland. Thus, TRINITY #4 is an amazing read, and I am eagerly looking forward to what's about to unfold in the next installment. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 21, 2016

    It's no surprise that Francis Manapul takes Diana and the Trinity to Themyscira, but everything was so rushed, that it barely made an impact.  The cliffhanger was interesting and the art was awesome, but I can't recommend this book as of now.  I just need more and I hope it comes soon because I am loosing interest in this story.

    The issue was quite dull and played to the more traditional stories of DC Comics. There was and maybe still is a lot of potential forthere to bean amazing story in this arc, I just hope it turns out so. Read Full Review
