    This issue isfantastic, and will have readers turning pages right until the end. While the characters feel ever so slightly stale, the Multiverse and the DC Universe keep this issue from ever getting boring. Read Full Review

    I'm greatly biased, as Trinity is my most beloved Rebirth series, thus far. I appreciate the development of their chemistry and combined strengths. However, unless you're a fan of Superman, this issue might not interest you, but I'll be looking forward to the continuation of this series. Props to Bunn for instilling an affinity for Superman in this issue. Read Full Review

    All in all, not a great issue. Filler and build up more than anything else. But it is pleasantly executed. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Apr 19, 2017

    Neither great nor bad,Trinity #8 spins its tires a bit too much, and its new developments hardly deserve twenty pages of exploration. Capable"but disappointingly bland"visuals struggle to generate excitement, although a late spread may make all of that irrelevant. If you're buyingTrinity, it's worth adding this to your collection"just don't expect to be blown away, and you won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O-Toole Apr 19, 2017

    I found the decision to not tell the other members of the Justice League to be unlike Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, but I liked seeing more of a connection to Mr. Oz. Even more than Mr. Oz, I like that this issue acknowledges other parts of the DC Universe like the events of Wonder Woman's past being explored in her own comic. All that being said, there was just too much of a disconnect between last issue and this one. It was cool to see all the past versions Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman on one page, even if it was a bit confusing. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Apr 21, 2017

    Overall, this issue had some very interesting implications and sets up an interesting conflict between the Justice League if this secret of a puppet master behind their reality is revealed. Still being confused with last issues relevance, I am still very much onboard with this title and intrigued to see where it is headed. Read Full Review

    Conceptually sound yet unoriginally executed, this issue efficiently constructed a foundation for future stories but did nothing more than that. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 22, 2017

    I've gone on record as saying that the use of The Trinity as separate and distinct from the JLA or the greater community of superhumans is a mistake, one that doesn't make these earliest heroes seem more important so much as it devalues the rest of DC's mythos. Trinity #8 makes that part and parcel of the narrative, even doubling down by having the heroes refuse to share intel with their colleagues on what is clearly a massive, universal threat, which makes them seem selfish at best and downright stupid at worst.

    Comic Book Corps - Josh West Apr 24, 2017

    Trinity #8 suffers from disjointed storytelling, some awkward art, and mechanical dialogue, but despite all of that it's still an interesting read and a seemingly important chapter in the Superman Reborn Aftermath. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Lu Apr 19, 2017

    Ultimately, I can't recommend Trinity #8. It's not necessarily a bad comic, but it's certainly not a necessary one. Save your money for the real Watchmen mystery... Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 19, 2017

    Trinity #8 is another unnecessary Superman Reborn Aftermath issue that confuses more than answers.  It's all a dream, however, but besides the art, it's actually a bit of a nightmare.  Questionable dialogue and poor characterizations are just two more reasons to leave it on the shelf and wait until next month's issue gets back to the series proper.   Read Full Review

    The last page teases a potentially interesting fallout, but the kickoff to The Truth About Superman proved an entirely skippable first chapter. Read Full Review

    I don’t like being down on books. I just wanted a lot more from this epilogue than space filler. Use these moments to tease what’s to come or expand on what’s already happened. Limping through is no way to spend 20 pages worth of story. Read Full Review
