ECCC 13: DC Comics Announces TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA Ongoing Series

The mysterious 'pink lady' gets her own series this June.

Since the final issue of FLASHPOINT and all the first #1s of DC's New 52 comics, we've been wondering who Pandora is, the mysterious pink lady. We've had a few glimpses of her, particularly in last year's New 52 FREE COMIC BOOK DAY issue. With the Trinity War event coming up, our need for questions has increased. Looks like this June we may start getting more answers.

Today at Emerald City Comicon, DC Comics announced a new ongoing series beginning in June -- TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA.

The series will be written by Ray Fawkes and feature art by Daniel Sampere. Fawkes has become attached to more and more DC series including CONSTANTINE.

We'll have to wait for more information about the series and what we could expect.

Does anyone like Pandora enough for her to have her own ongoing?

Nope, I guess this is them trying to make her likable.

how many other spots are there do to the cancellations?

Posted by Rixec

Sweet. With the Trinity War looming this is bound to be important.

Posted by SolthesunGod

She is the image of Rachel Summers.

Still no series for Cyborg, an actual Justice League member? I sure hope he's next in line

Posted by The_Tree

With Phantom Stranger and now this, I wonder if a Question series is soon to turn up.

@haydenclaireheroes@Walzo: how can you lime someone and they were only seen in 54 books (once in flashpoint, the new 52 number 1 issues and FCBD)? it is time we knew more about her and i guess this is a good way. she deserves a backup like they did Shazam in Justice league.

Interesting, I may pick this up though I'll wait for more details before I decide for sure.

With tying her to the mythological Pandora, this is a series that could go in a lot of directions and would have a lot of material to pull from. It could be really good, but then again so was Sword of Sorcery and that got the ziggy.

When is the time Trinity War starts?

Posted by SmashBrawler

Meh.

Posted by Dud317

I agree that it seems better for a backup, or even a mini that leads into Trinity War. But an ongoing? DC is putting a lot of eggs in one basket on this one. Don't know Phantom Strangers numbers, but maybe it's doing better than they anticipated. Hell, why not make it an ongoing of all 3 in 1?

Posted by longbowhunter

Well there is a Phantom Stranger book and now one for Pandora. Where's my damn Question ongoing?

Because if it was to say reg. size book. You would be looking 8-10 pages each so essentially 3 backups. That means you would have to make it a quarterly and those do not have a great track record on the stand.

Now this will be a very very interesting read

Posted by The_jackolantern

People hating on the 1st comment.thats quick.il give this a story arc.hopefuly its good.always need another good new female comic book character

Posted by bladewolf

I probably won't read it, but it could be good.

Posted by JLDoom

Sounds fairly interesting

Posted by danhimself

they keep giving all of these lesser known characters their own ongoings and yet all of us are begging for Wally, Donna, Steph, and Cass to come back and they just won't do it...just doesn't seem right

Posted by Red_Robin212

I'll give it a go

I'm really liking Phantom Stranger so hopefully this will be just as enjoyble

most likely...........................I'm enjoying Phantom Stranger and this title looks important so I'm down to read it.

Posted by Duo_forbidden

I will actually check this series out. All that's left is a Question series.

Posted by Samimista

I'm very curious about her so I'll be picking this up.

Posted by Marco_Kidd

@danhimself: They've obviously got plans for those characters, they want to sell books so there not going to be holding them back just to piss people off.

Posted by StrangeMan

I hope that when Question gets his own ongoing (I assume that they're gonna do it) he's somewhat alike to his pre-Flashpoint counterpart, despite his new supernatural roots.

Posted by Wolverine0628

I love Pandora! I will definitely give this series a chance.

Edited by Ravager4

So they cancelled three of the series I'm following, and continue to announce replacements I have no interest in. Fantastic.

Because its all about you. Lol

There is no direct correlation between a book being cancelled and a new one starting up. I.E-They are not cancelling Death Stroke to make room for Pandora. They cancelled it because of poor sales and interest. There will always be an ebb and flow of new books to the lineup, to appeal to the wide array of readers out there and introduce us to new characters other people besides yourself might be interested in.

I do not understand why Cyborg keeps getting passed over. *Sigh

Demon knights hasnt been cancelled

Posted by ME24601

@Avenging-X-Bolt: Six books were canceled in May, and three have been officially announced (Larfleeze, Pandora, Batman/Superman), leaving three more that haven't been officially announced yet (Although one of them will definitely be the new Superman book by Snyder and Lee).

Posted by bob808

When will the Question have his own series?

Posted by Omega-Man

I just wanted to see this and say....Not buying and not interested

Uh, I never claimed it was... was just griping out loud. Forgive me for having an opinion.

Posted by Twentyfive

@Ravager4: I forgive you.

On a different, more upbeat note, I'm totally not looking forward to this. G'job DC!

Posted by Jake Fury

Would still much rather read any of the following with a good writer:

  • Blue Beetle
  • Captain Atom
  • JLI
  • Booster Gold
Posted by jpblair88

still no Red Robin, Cassandra Cain, or Martian Manhunter ongoing. but what did/will we have: Pandora, OMAC, Hawk and Dove, Dial H, Batwing, Vibe, Katana, The Ravagers, Sword of Sorcery, Talon, Threshold, Blackhawks, Men of War, The Green Team, The Movement, and other things no one asked for.

@Stormbox:

Sorry, I meant Deathstroke. Edited. thanks!

Was anyone asking for a Red Robin, Cassandra Cain Batgirl or Martian Manhunter book before they had their first ongoing? All the characters people are asking for already had their chance before. Why kneecap the new guys? Otherwise, why introduce new characters if all people want is the same old stuff created decades ago?

@Loki2u: No problem, i spose

Posted by dtschemmel

@haydenclaireheroes: Does anybody like vibe enough for his own ongoing?

Agreed

Eh, wont be reading it

@Avenging-X-Bolt said:

Two more. Or three if Snyder's Superman isn't part of it.

There were eight cancelled.

Then we get the Movement and Green Team (2)

Batman/Superman, Larfleeze, Pandora (5)

Snyder/Lee's Superman book? (6)

Two more.

You guys are all saying the same thing over and over again.

Why is everyone so closed-minded? You've learned to love the characters you're asking for, but you won't try to explore and learn to love more characters?

Am I the only one that doesn't buy a book just because of the characters in it? Sometimes I think that I am a rare breed when I don't feel like I should be.

Another reason I hate this rotten dumbed-down society.

Doesn't this series come a little bit too late? 
What I couldn't understand at the end of 2011 was Pandora making an appearance in all the #1s without any further explanation. Back then, an ongoing or a back up in whatever other title would have made so much sense. I'm not saying, this new series is pointless at this point but why waiting until middle of 2013? Who makes these decisions at DC? Who's idea was it to create Pandora as a character, let her show up in Flashpoint and the #1s, just to let her disappear for that long? The whole New52 (Universe) could have been planned and laid out in a smarter way... imho
 
Most of the new series coming up this May/June sound very interesting. Lets hope Pandora's ongoing will live up to its expectations. Again, we've been waiting for almost 2 years for this to happen.

Nah a mini woukd be better

@haydenclaireheroes said:

shes new, I'm down for anything if it has a good story and DC has been building up to the trinity wars crossover for a while, I am expecting it to be great.

Posted by Perfect 10

dont get me wrong i like phantom stranger but they should have done this instead of his solo title and called it "trinity of sin" and focus on all three not just pandora or stranger. they could flush out their origins and purpose in the new 52. would prefer a mini series but with the way dc cancels stuff their books are pretty much all minis
