    Monsignor Wanty: Doesn't smoke but wants to see every single character in the new reality be seen smoking. It'd be a hoot. C'mon, you think so, too. A little bit of non-political correctness never hurt anyone right? Read Full Review

    I'm not sure what to make of this issue's awkward coda involving Lois Lane, nor do I entirely understand what I was looking at following the issue's big explosion. All I know is that the first time, this series caught my attention and inspired a little wonder, and for that, I'm grateful. Things might be looking up for DC's latest weekly (emphasis on might).

    The art is a bit uneven. The main "Trinity" story is depicted well, even though all we really see are explosions and energy trails. The Konvikt backup meanwhile looks rather rushed. It is told in the form of flashbacks to Konvikt's home planet while he awaits trial in some government prison on Earth. But McDaniel makes both the flashbacks and the present day "Earth" scenes look alike so it is hard to tell which scenes came first. McDaniel's blocky style simply does not lend itself to these kind of stories where setting and context are so important. All in all, this is a disappointing issue for TRINITY. Maybe since this is a weekly title, they feel they can spend an entire issue on special effects. Well, maybe they could have given us a stronger back-up story to tide us over. Read Full Review
