    A great character drama that peers inside three villains heads and has them fight together because they must. Read Full Review

    This fascinating look into the minds of the villains creates a parallel with the heroes of TRINITY, setting up an exciting conflict to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Mar 16, 2017

    The only real problem I have, and its a minor one, is that everything is still in flux in Wonder Womans book. That all played well in the first story arc, as Wonder Womans uncertainty as to the truth of her background and the Amazons fed into the Black Mercys hallucinatory world. But in this case, Circe seems to have a solid background with her nemesis, and I wonder how that can be, when her connection to the Amazons has yet to be revealed. Ah well, the problems of tight continuity in a changing reality are bound to pop up from time to time. Perhaps this will even tie directly in. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Mar 15, 2017

    Surprisingly, in Trinity #7 the titular heroesare all but missing. Outside of one-panel memories, only villains appear in this issue. However, Bunn uses these three villains to write the beginnings of one compelling drama. I found myself incredibly impressed with the substance and feel of Trinity #7. I enjoyed this issue way more than I thought I would. Consequently, Trinity #7 is a terrific start to a new narrativearch. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tim Montoya Mar 15, 2017

    Being the first issue into a new arc, I am intrigued enough to see where this goes. Even though we didn't see any of the Trinity in their own title here, the buildup has enough going for it. Read Full Review

    We find ourselves with a whole new creative team for the first story in our new arc and I couldn't be happier. I am not going to say anything back about the last arc, but this one starts out so perfect. Read Full Review

    I truly enjoyed every aspect of this issue and look forward to what comes next, but it does feel like the creative team is jumping the shark a little. Read Full Review

    This clever comic book took an unconventional approach to the start of a story arc, and the result was an impressive success. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Mar 15, 2017

    Trinity #7 makes for a welcome tonal variation after "Better Together". Bunn writes the villains (mostly) well, and I can only hope that Manapul plans to water the seeds planted here. Great artwork by Mann and Mendonca immerses us in a dark place (and a dark alliance), even if the two are similar enough to be confusing at times. All-in-all, this is a nice, thought-provoking read that gets better with repeat consideration. Read Full Review

    This was an interesting start to a new arc in this series. If you haven't been following Trinity, then this is definitely a great jumping on point. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Mar 17, 2017

    Hopefully, the inclusion of the Trinity will help to piece this together and this issue will be much more integral to the story looking back at the end of the arc. The creative team does deserve credit for the very fact they had a first issue not even really have the Trinity in it (unless you count the “amalgamation” monster). They also picked three villains that do seem to fit the Trinity and help to elevate any tension in future interactions with the Trinity. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 15, 2017

    This issue came out of nowhere and in a book that still hasn't gotten it's footing, felt strange.  Instead of giving us Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, we get a sort of Dark Trinity story that had no real beginning or end.  This book was struggling to keep my attention and this may have been the last straw.

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Mar 17, 2017

    At first glance, this is a perfectly fine comic, but delve deeper and one will probably find issue with one or two things. Really that could be said for almost anything that is viewed critically, but when the reader has to go through a comic and needs to pause during the initial read and be taken out of the story, there is something definitely not right. There are good elements and moments in this issue, but as a whole, the book doesnt hold together. Read Full Review
