Trinity #4 by Francis Manapul - Book Review
From the publisher: “BETTER TOGETHER” part four! The trio’s tribulations have turned the Black Mercy’s gift into a world of nightmares that give birth to a horror that can only be called the White Mercy. And what scares Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman could destroy the world!
Trinity #4 is the penultimate chapter in the Better Together storyline, by Francis Manapul. This time around, it is Wonder Woman's chance to revisit her youth, as she, Batman, and Superman visit Themyscira and meet the Amazons. Our heroes are challenged and face a series of trials; however, the men are not accepted and must move on. Meanwhile in the present, Lois and Jon confront Poison Ivy. Very little happens with this storyline in this issue, though.
I continue to enjoy Trinity. The character development is moving forward and the art is gorgeous. The interaction between Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman is very interesting, particularly since this is not the same Superman the other two have an established friendship with. As this series moves on, this should be the most intriguing aspect of the series. I look forward to seeing how the relationships develop, grow, and change.
I highly recommend Trinity #4 by Francis Manapul. Its a fun read and moves the story arc along well.
I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.
