You don't betray Ra's al Ghul and legendary sorceress Circe and just walk away. That's what Lex Luthor is about to learn the hard way. Now, he has to unite with his former Justice League teammates if he wants to stay alive. Meanwhile, the Trinity fear this ordeal will push Lex back to the dark side.

    Comicosity - Chris Campbell May 31, 2017

    Trinity Annual #1 was an uplifting look at DCs perfect three. The story brings them together in familial love and the art work weaves them together in an epic modern tapestry. Its an issue that ties into the DC Universe as a whole, but self-contained enough to be enjoyed as a one off. Dont miss this important issue. Read Full Review

    I've been waiting for the continuation of Trinity #7, andfinally the Annual delivers on that story.Throw Etrigan into mix, along with a surprise appearance by yet anotherDC Trinity, and you've got an exciting, fast-paced book from start tofinish. And God help me, but I loveGuillem March and every impractical, anatomy-defying panel he draws. I just hope I don't have to wait anothercouple of months for the conclusion of this awesome story!

    The art is great. The action incredible. YOU GET TO SEE SUPERMAN FIGHTING A GIANT DEMON. It was fun, and that is what an annual is supposed to be all about. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jun 1, 2017

    Trinity Annual #1 should please readers with its focus on how well the trinity work together. The ending is also intriguing, though it will be another couple months before this particularly story is picked up again as the next issues of Trinity move away from Ra's al Ghul and Circe's plot. The annual, though, should leave readers with a good feeling of what's to come in this story. Read Full Review

    While it doesnt end in a cliffhanger, the annual teases that a third trinity will surface in the future. Given the success of this annual, that future tale should be another story worth reading. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti May 31, 2017

    If you're going to pick up one of the three annuals releasing today, I'd recommend this one. It feels the most complete since it's a singular story that doesn't require much prior reading, and you can jump in right here. I'm curious as to where the story will go but the ending got me pretty excited for the upcoming story. The art by March was strong and Williams' dialogue was great. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Sharna Jahangir May 31, 2017

    The plot is a little convoluted, I noticed this for many Trinity story-arcs. I followed the Pre-New 52 Trinity series from the early 2000s,and a major flaw was that several narratives didn't make sense. So much time-hopping. I really hope this doesn't occur for Rebirth Trinity. It's a relatively new universe, so it's alright that they made four Superman clash into each other (although, why Rebirth? Why?) It needs to flow better. I believe that the lack of history between Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne/Diana Prince is a significant reason why Trinity appears nonlinear. Until issue #6, the writers were doing a bang-up job with story plotting. It looks like they're on their way to tie things together. At the end of the issue, the dark Trinity appears; Red Hood, Artemis, and Bizzaro from Red Hood and the Outlaws! I'm stoked for the next adventure. Yet, if they give me more out-of-suit parties, dinners, and interactions, I won't complain. Bruce! Stop freaking out Clark with the bill! Read Full Review

    Williams teases a potentially significant development in the final page, but it will play out in the regular title " or another team book. Either way, that's not enough of a reason to grab this annual. But if you've dug everything from Trinity so far, you won't regret picking it up. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 31, 2017

    Rob Williams grabs the Dark Trinity baton and finishes the race...just a different race then the one we started months ago.  The focus changed and a fan favorite character joined in and it all ended with the promise of more to come.  I liked what we got here enough, but I'm not sure I need more.

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jun 1, 2017

    Williams definitely tries to raise the stakes, but the danger is undone so quickly that it felt inconsequential. There may be long-term complications from the alliances that unfold in this issue, but as a stand alone issue, it's just not very good. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Jun 2, 2017

    Overall, this was a good annual and helped to continue the coming battle between the new trinities in Rebirth against Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. It was a nice moment with Bruce trying to connected with his fellow teammates and struggling to form the words and needing a little help from Clark. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Jun 2, 2017

    It's always been difficult to challenge the Trinity, especially when they got the Justice League in their top 5 contacts. This comic reads like The Expendables, you spend most of your time guessing which retired top-tier villain is about to show up and wreck shop. In all honesty, it is a fun read. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards May 31, 2017

    At the end of the day, this book is going to do little more than reinforce how you feel about the series. If you've been into it so far, you'll probably dig this one. If you dropped it, I don't think this is going to make you pick it back up. And if you never started but are interested, maybe skip this one. Either grab the first trade, find a copy of Trinity #9 from a couple weeks ago, or wait until the start of the next story arc instead. Read Full Review

    A weak beginning and a handful of artistic excesses marred an otherwise serviceably effective effort that was salvaged when the creators stuck the landing. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw May 31, 2017

    I don't hate Trinity Annual #1, but I don't like it all that much either. It comes at a poor time in the series schedule, and the usually-reliable Rob Williams fails to make this book's intrusion worthwhile. Lots of great pages from Guillem March and Tomeu Morey may be enough to justify the cover price for some of you, but don't say I didn't warn you if you end up feeling let down. Read Full Review
