Interview: Ivan Reis Talks Trinity War and JUSTICE LEAGUE

It all begins next week. Get ready to hold onto your hats.

Next week Trinity War begins in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE #22. Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis are kicking off the action that will continue in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK.

Yesterday we talked to Doug Mahnke about the second chapter in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #6. Let's hear what Ivan Reis has to say about this crazy story coming up.

Comic Vine: How crazy do things get in JUSTICE LEAGUE #22

Ivan Reis: #22 ends with a bombastic scene! Something crazy and wild… but you have to read it for yourself! Readers will be crazy to know how everything ends in fact!

CV: Did you have to coordinate with other artists, like Doug Mahnke, to pick up where your issue leaves off?

IR: We exchanged tips and pages as they were being done. This way everyone knows where the other is in the story. It’s fantastic to be able to follow Doug’s work.

CV: Do we see any characters for the first time in the New 52?


CV: Do things get even crazier in JUSTICE LEAGUE #23?

IR: I’m currently working on #23, and the only thing I can say is that it is soooooooo DAMN COOL! There will be so many important moments going on!

CV: September is Villains Month but will you be back for issue #24?

IR: HELLZYEAH! We’re all back! Stay tuned! ;)

Make sure you pick up JUSTICE LEAGUE #22, on sale July 10.

That Superman punch is awesome

Man Reis seems pumped. Can't really blame him though because cannot wait to read Trinity War!

Get Ivan Reis on a dark Batman book, STAT!!! He draws Batman soooooooo great, he needs to do it fulltime, in a dark Gotham.

Wow! Can't wait for this...

Ahh man I really want to read all the titles of trinity war but at the same time I don't want my wallet to fall out with me.

Batman looks weird

Posted by Grey56

Unlike any Marvel event of late, I am genuinely eager to see where they take this; Pandora, The Phantom Stranger & Spectre have important roles to play out in the context of how the New 52 was reconciled with the previous iteration.

I hope they all get Shazamed, hard.

Trinity War!!!

Posted by SPM1M

yes ..... simply yes

Posted by lilben42

Every time I get more details about the Trinity War it gets more complex.

Posted by vaso_petrov

i hope its great cuz this is DC's chance to really form this new world which till now (atleast for me) was just a shell of the pre-New 52

Edited by blkson

Is that Dr Light standing between Aquaman and Zatana? So is he a good guy now?

edit: Nevermind thats just Flash's after image.

Looks like Superman still has the edge over Shazam even with the more magical link to his powers. Reis' artwork really is gorgeous indeed.

This man rocks with the art!

Those pages look fantastic, can't wait to read it

Batman looks weird on the cover

Why is Superman fighting Captain- I mean Shazam?

Edited by Mbecks14

I love Ivan Reis! I'm obsessed with his work

Edited by Saren

Ha! Superman didn't get one-shotted in an issue of Justice League again. I'm interested already.

Look at J'onn standing there with folded arms like a boss.

I thought this came out tomorrow? has it been put back a week?

Posted by johnqestion

Damn, that is some fine pencils! And thank you, Johns, for once we don't see Kal get jobbed. Enough with punching the guy all the time! Great to see him get to show some power...though I guess the JLA are pissed. pfft.

Edited by TheManInTheShoe

So thrilled!

Edited by saoakden

Really looking forward to this story!

Posted by ULTRAstarkiller

Hope Batman kicks ass.

Posted by The_Greatest_Green_Lantern

Who else is tired of seeing Shazam job for Superman? That's all DC uses him for--propping up Superman since the mid-1980s. -_-

Let's let Shazam and Cyborg shine this time round.

Hope Batman kicks ass.

I doubt it.

I haven't been reading any of the JL titles but this one looks good.

Posted by matchesmalone21

@blkson: Yes it is Doctor Light there,but he's tanding between Streve Trevor and Martian Manhunter. Doctor Light isn't a villain (Yet),he works for A.R.G.U.S. as scientific advisor and received his powers accidentally in Justice League of America 5

Posted by Vaeternus

Nice, cant wait.

Posted by xAnimosity

They need to bring Hal back into the JL!

Posted by SmashBrawler

Ivan Reis should draw everything ever.

Posted by Paragon_Sean

I'm psyched for this! I hope this who story turns out well. By the way, what books does it take place in? I know JL, JLA, and JLD are involved, but are there any others?

Posted by Cavemold

Lets hope dr.light does go infinity crisis on us now

Edited by RedheadedAtrocitus

Dr. Light? Awesomeness! This event is getting rosier and rosier by the minute for me :)

@paragon_sean: The story ties in with Constantine and another title I cannot recall but the main thing is in the three Justice League Titles.

Posted by ajshadowhawk

@paragon_sean: Justice League, Justice League of America and Justice League Dark contain the main storyline in their July and August issues.This month's issue of Constantine will be a tie-in as well. They are also releasing three special issues of Trinity of Sin: Pandora for the event, two of which will ship this month. Next month's issue of Phantom Stranger will be another tie-in.

Here's the checklist:

Edited by Paragon_Sean

@thefirstlantern: Alright, thank you. The other title is probably the new Pandora one that I just read about.

@the_greatest_green_lantern: I'm sure Shazam will have his fair share of good hits. If it makes you feel better, MM will probz kick Supes ass.
