Okay, time to let your breath. Trinity War has been one heckuva ride. There were some high and low points. In the end, big things happen. Things have changed.
With the creation of the Justice League in this title, we soon saw the team was a somewhat tight group, refusing to let others join the team. Events soon escalated and they found this could no longer be the case. At the same time, Amanda Waller decided to form a new counter team in the Justice League of America. Each member of this team was selected to take down one of the main team members. This was a great set up for the series and the fact that the members were oblivious to the reason why they were chosen was a nice twist. This was a direction that could easily last for a bit. But everything exploded and the truth was revealed.
With Trinity War starting, the truth soon came out. We saw the two teams combine and work together in different ways. With the mystery of why Superman seemingly killed Dr. Light and the more mysterious Outsider and the Secret Society of Super Villains, there was still a lot to find out. Throw in Pandora and the secrets of 'Pandora's Box,' we had a ticket for a ride on the crazy train.
A common theme throughout the later chapters has been the big action. Comic book readers often wonder how different fights would play out, who would win, etc. We have been treated to several big scenes of the heroes clashing. If this doesn't satisfy the hunger some readers have, I don't know what will.
While there is a lot of action and fighting, that's not all there is. If you've been wanting answers about Pandora's Box, the Outsider, traitors, plus more shocks and twists, you'll get all that here. Just when you thought you knew what has happening in the New 52 Universe, we find out there's more going on. This will definitely shake things up a bit in the third year of the New 52.
Ivan Reis and Joe Prado do this issue justice (no pun intended). They have some really big and monumental scenes to handle and they do with ease. DC even allowed for some big splashy scenes that didn't feel as if it took away from the overall story or page count.
This scene is beautifully recreated (and tweaked a tiny bit). It's a joy to see this moment finally happen. It's also pretty cool thinking back to everything that has lead up to this moment. While you read this issue, you'll find yourself pausing to simply stare at the art on the pages.
The answers are rewarding and you'll want to see what's next.
Big action and big fun lead to a great amount of entertainment. What's not to love?
Just when you thought you knew what was going on in the New 52, we find out there's a little more going on. For a story that's seemingly been in development for some time, everything comes crashing down here. This is where we not only get some more crazy action sequences but we get a score of answers. In some ways, this issue is a game-changer. Too many times crossovers and "events" in comics end with a fizzle but this sets the stage for big things to come. Even if you felt you knew how things would end with FOREVER EVIL on the horizon, there's still moments that should catch you off guard. It's not often a comic actually changes the face of a comic universe. That's exactly what this issue does. Geoff Johns is bringing the thunder to the New 52 and it looks like the Justice League forgot their umbrellas.
