    Monsignor Wanty: wants to reiterate the prayer for an injection of something in this book to make people sit up and take notice. 52 had its delicious mysteries and dramatic events; Countdown had its suckiness what does Trinity have? It's not too early or late for this book to make a name for itself. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Aug 5, 2008

    The art is a bit too heavy for such a fast-moving, action-packed issue. But all in all, it captures the excitement of the story although some of the layouts get a bit sloppy in the last pages. Maybe the weekly deadlines are catching up to the art team. They certainly had enough artists working on this issue already. Read Full Review

    Now onto my complaints about Busiek's regular storytelling conventions. I've often used my Trinity reviews to voice my dislike for his overuse of generic, cookie cutter villains, and that trapping is once again on full display in this issue. Busiek gives us a dopey, paper-thin rogue named the Swashbuckler as this issue's main antagonist, and I found myself shrugging indifferently every time this guy popped up to bombastically announce his name and steal artifacts of varying usefulness. A story is only as good as its antagonists, and baddies like Morgan Le Fey, Enigma and Swashbuckler just don't cut it as far as I'm concerned. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Ben Berger Aug 5, 2008

    I may be a minority in thinking so, but this series isn't good. Nine weeks, and almost no story movement. Nine issues is almost 300 pages. I've read books with complete stories much shorter than that. I consider myself a fairly patient man. I don't need constant explosions, loud music, or hot babes to be entertained (though it helps). With Trinity, I just don't have it in me anymore. I hope you don't either, don't buy this book. It's time me and this title parted ways. Read Full Review
