In Review: DC Rebirth: Trinity #1 – Better Together Part 1

Together again for the first time! Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.

Synopsis: Together again for the first time! Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The core of the World’s Greatest Heroes…but with a new Man of Steel, the bonds these three share will be tested and redefined by super-star writer/artist Francis Manapul. In this premiere issue, see the trio travel from Metropolis to Gotham City and beyond to learn what forces launched their heroic careers. But how will this journey of discovery lead them to a new threat?

Review: This comic mostly centres on Lois Lane, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman and Superman’s young kid having a meal together.

The concept of these three heroes coming together at a dinner party probably is not a new thing, but its probably not something that happens to often.

Much of the conversation centres around them re-teaming. Which is an issue because this particular superman and clark kent is not the same one that Batman and Wonder Woman knew and loved.

As someone that has not really been following the central DC character in comics for some time. I was a little surprised that Lois and Superman had a kid together.

The writing by Francis Manapul does a serviceable job of capturing the characters voices.

But the star of this issue for me is the Manapul’s art work and inks.

The story thus far has been the three main protagonist getting to know each other again, which after awhile feels like superhero’s doing Downton Abbey as in one of the episodes in which absolutely nothing happens, which is probably most of that series.

It will be interesting to see where this goes in the other issues, which are to come. But for me it is the art work that kept my attention throughout this. Nothing wrong with the writing as such. I just wanted something to happen.
