5.0 out of 5 stars Crisis on Earth New 52 13 April 2014
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The story running through Justice League #22 & #23, Justice League of America #6 & #7, Justice League Dark #22 & #23, Trinity of Sin: Pandora #1-3, Constantine #5, Trinity of Sin: Phantom Stranger #11 and `New 52 Free Comic Book Day Special 2012' is collected as Justice League Trinity War HC (The New 52) (Justice League (DC Comics)).

The story sequence is -
New 52 Free Comic Book Day Special 2012
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #1
Justice League #22
Justice League of America #6
Justice League Dark #22
Constantine #5
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #2
Trinity of Sin: Phantom Stranger #11
Justice League of America #7
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #3
Justice League Dark #23
Justice League #23

The story itself is actually very good, with spectacular artwork and very good characterisation, one of the better Geoff Johns everything-and-the-kitchen-sink epics, though this one is at least confined to Earth (and heaven (with a small 'h') as it is non-denominational). I say Earth, I suppose I should specify which one, but I'm not sure which Earth the New 52 takes place on, as Earth One is being used for an `Elseworlds' series, Earth 2 is the new Earth Two, and Earth Three is the home of the Crime Syndicate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Trinity! 27 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This graphic novel consisting of 12 issues put together in one volume is amongst the best dc tales I have read since the launch of 'The New 52'. You don't have to be a hardcore comic book fan to enjoy this although it helps to understand the intricacies.
So what's it about?
Basically a long long time ago Pandora is one of three (the trinity of sin?) who was sentenced to a circle of wizards to walk the Earth in eternal torment observing the horrors that she was purportedly responsible for. Her crime - opening Pandora's box and unleashing the seven sins upon the world. As the centuries have passed by Pandora has come to believe that the seven sins can be returned to the box - their prison, but only by one of the purest or darkest of hearts. Pandora sets her sights on Superman.
Needless to say things go wrong and this is the catalyst for a storm pitting the Justice League against the Justice League Of America, justice League Dark and so forth.
There is no happy ending here folks and essentially what this boils down to is a prelude to the Forever Evil saga. But that is a different story.
You will not be disappointed by this book although in my opinion a couple of the issues could have been done away with. Many characters play key roles such as John Constantine, Phantom Stranger etc.
Great purchase!

4.0 out of 5 stars Trinity Conflict/Conspiracy 18 Mar 2014
By Anarchy in the US - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
So it has finally come to this. Ever since the last pages of FLASHPOINT in 2011, every #1 issue of the beginning of the DC New 52 having Pandora make "Where's Waldo?" appearances, a Free Comics Day 2012 comic teasing the event, Pandora herself being hyped up as important for the future of the DC Universe; JUSTICE LEAGUE: TRINITY WAR has been hyped for 2+ years. This is included namely by Geoff Johns' Justice League series which built toward the coming of Trinity War, but not to the same effect as his other superhero team called Justice League of America which was also written by Johns. The Justice League of America comic centered on A.R.G.U.S forming its own team of meta-humans who could bring down the Justice League in the event that they one day ever turned evil. Until that day comes, the JLA focused their efforts on investigating a Secret Society of Supervillains led by an unnamed figure with a strange connection to Pandora's Box.

That's pretty much the nutshell of what's happened to get to this point. And although the "war" part of this series and the hype isn't as good as it has started, TRINITY WAR still has its share of enjoyable reading.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: TRINITY WAR collects the following in proper reading order:

The New 52: Free Comic Book Day Special Edition #1
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #1 (Prelude)
Justice League #22
Justice League of America #6
Justice League Dark #22
Constantine #5 (tie-in)
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #2 (tie-in)
Trinity of Sin: Phantom Stranger #11 (tie-in)
Justice League of America #7
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #3
Justice League Dark #23
Justice League #23 (Conclusion)

I am going to try to summarize this event without going into too much detail as to not spoil anything, and it would take forever to describe every little detail.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: TRINITY WAR see's Pandora, an ageless woman who has finally found her box (Pandora's box) and wants to free her curse the curse of her sins by having someone of good heart and strength open the box, and wants Superman to open it. But Superman is busy with the Justice League have gotten through with their previous adventure (see Justice League Vol. 4: The Grid (The New 52) (Jla (Justice League of America) (Graphic Novels)) next month), and have gotten word Shazam is off in Europe to bury the ashes of Black Adam (because both character tore up a ton of stuff in Shazam's solo series and everyone is afraid of him now). So the JL head to Europe to ask Shazam questions of what happened. The Justice League of America (run by Amanda Waller) finally see this as an opportunity to show the world the JL is not got for anyone. And just like that, both groups are caught in the middle of taking over the situation with Shazam. And JLAmerica's newest member, Dr. Light, inadvertently hurts Wonder Woman and Superman goes into a rage and does the unthinkable: he kills Dr.Light. This sets off both teams into frenzy and so starts the Trinity War...or is it? Because both leagues don't want to really fight each other and everyone knows Superman would never kill anyone, friend or foe. Something is amiss here and every superhero knows it, and wants to find out why. And if magic was involved, maybe this had to do with Pandora and her Box? Some mystical outside force perhaps? So then who better to investigate this matter then Justice League Dark, and they too wrapped up in this conflict. So begins the Trinity War.

This series is surprising for a few matters. First of all, is the misleading nature of this event. All the promotional stuff of heroes fighting heroes and 2 years of buildup make it this was going to be nothing but a slugfest, making it appear like DC's own answer to various Marvel events Civil War and Avengers Vs. X-Men for examples. And although we do get our share of action, it's quite the opposite. This event is more of a murder mystery/thriller involving numerous fractions taking sides on how to act on what happened with Superman/Dr. Light. The "War" part is only the beginning and setup, while the rest of the event has characters scrambling left and right trying to make sense of what and why it all happened. So after the initial battle scrimmage of the JL/JLA teams, the event is about looking at the characters perspective of the event and yes, setting up for the next big event to come.

Most events are action-heavy and move very little story plot, whereas Trinity War does sort of the opposite. The key selling point is the characters reactions to the event itself as commentary, which Johns and Lemire handle the characters voices really well. Even before the fight of JL and JLA, characters were unsure if they could or want to take down their hero/counter part. During the brawl sequence, Johns has every character having doubts and questioning why they are fighting other heroes and this is all happening while their fighting! To the very idea that every hero in the world believes Superman would never openly kill someone, to even the characters finally sticking up to Amanda Waller and seeing her dream team of JLA is not the answers. This alone is remarkable because the characters retain their voice, they are conscious of their world and their actions, and it makes sense logically. It's not like Marvel's Civil War where best friends Captain America and Iron Man fought each other with little regard or emotion for one another through all the years they stood for, or make nothing but fighting because it's an event. This is a conscious-character driven event, where everyone really is on the same side, only different fractions are making various methods to solve them. For me, this is the best part of the event and it is something I feel more events, especially heroes fighting heroes (which I feel burnt out on in turn of comic events), should learn from.

Beyond the event itself, lets talk about this hardcover collection. For starters, it is incredible DC has the entire event including the tie-ins of New 52 Free Comic Day 2012, Constantine, Pandora, and Phantom Stranger. DC has done a remarkable job on their hardcover/$30 collections. Tons of issues in hardcover for a great price and Trinity War is no different.

And lastly, the art is top notch. Ivan Reids does Justice League, Doug Mahnke does JLA, and Mikel Janin does JLDark and all three have amazingly high quality art styles. It can be a little rough and confusing here and there, but the majority of the art is high quality stuff.

Now for the flaws. Although my Amazon score is 4 stars, I will rate this event around 3 stars and here are some reasons.

Trinity War was essentially a bait and switch and misleading title. It's not really a "war" by any stretch of the means, but more of a conflicted event turned bad. So despite 2 years worth of hype, readers expecting full-on big fighting might be disappointed, not to mention Trinity War really is just a prologue to the even bigger event called Forever Evil. Yes, this event is a lead-in to another event. Marvel has been doing this to death in their camp for the past few years, but it is a bit saddening to see DC do it, especially under Geoff Johns who usually doesn't do such a tactic. It makes any "event" feel superficial and less impactful. And by the way, if you don't know what Forever Evil is DO NOT Google it before reading Trinity War. If you know the premise for Forever Evil already and fully understand it then you don't need to read Trinity War. So if you are bound to read Forever Evil when it comes out trades, you might want to read Trinity War first.

Secondly, even with the Free Comic Day issue, Trinity War is a rough jumping on point for casual readers. Johns has been slowly setting this event up since day 1 of the New 52 and having prior knowledge of everything to get to this point in Justice League, JLA, and even Shazam!'s solo series is sort of necessary. Johns still fills in previous plot lines here and there for casual readers to catch up, but it still isn't the same as having read everything to build up to this point. Not to mention fans still have to wait until April for Justice League vol.4, so that's a bit dumb for fans who have to wait to fill in the blanks.

Also, the tie-ins, as good as they are on their own terms except the Free Comics Day issue, I would argue you can skip them though. It's great that they were included, it really is. You're getting bang for your buck and completionists will appreciate having every tie-in from the event. However, those issues aren't all that important, especially looking back from where I am now (as someone who is reading Forever Evil currently) those tie-in chapters really don't matter. Pandora herself really doesn't matter. Nothing against them, as I think they do better in their own series (especially Phantom Stranger. Really enjoyable series). So I would recommend reading just the JL/JLA/JLD and Free Comic Day issues first, and then re-read the trade with the tie-ins. You'll notice the difference.

So JUSTICE LEAGUE: TRINITY WAR isn't what it advertised or hyped fans up to what we thought it would be, which could frustrate readers, as well as being a prologue event for the next event, which that too is getting annoying in the comic world. But seeing the first real big event in the New 52 is still pretty cool, having most of the cast and crew retain their personality and being self-conscious of their actions against other heroes is brilliant, the art is grade-A stuff, and the amount of content you're getting seeing as each of the Trinity War JL/JLA/JLD issues were $4 a piece. That is $24 alone for singles, so this is still a great deal. So I did enjoy it as a whole, but the twist in the event structure sort of hurt it for me. So again, I'm giving this a 3 score out of 4, but I'll round up to 4 stars.

If you enjoyed this event, prepare for the villains to take over in the next true event, Forever Evil.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Justice Leagues clash in 'Trinity War' 3 April 2014
By ERSInk . com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
DC Comics brings their latest event which unified its universe to the graphic novel format with "Justice League: Trinity War." The cataclysmic battle crossed the pages of Justice League, Justice League of America, Justice League Dark, Trinity of Sin: Pandora, Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger, Constantine, and the New 52 Free Comic Book Day Special for 2012. It was a colossal endeavor that brought together almost every character from every corner of the DC world.

Pandora has stolen her box back and is scouring the world in search of the perfect or imperfect soul to open it. She believes her actions will put an end to the evil she accidently released on humanity. The members of the three different Justice Leagues are at odds over whether or not Pandora can be trusted or knows what she's doing. Is she misled in her endeavors or can she really wipe the face of evil off the Earth?

It's amazing how four different writers can organize their thoughts into one complex storyline. The scripting for "Justice League: Trinity War" was handled by Geoff Johns, Ray Fawkes, Jeff Lemire, and J.M. DeMatteis. It's a great story that keeps readers' attention from start to finish. Speaking of the finish, I didn't see it coming. It's well-played and leads right into the next Universe-wide event for DC.

There are way too many artists to list off who contribute to "Justice League: Trinity War." They include Ivan Reis, Jim Lee, Vicente Cifuentes, Gene Ha, Joe Prado, and Scott Williams to name a few. Each one brings their own style to the table. They all do a fabulous job of bringing the words of the writers to life in every panel.

I would rate "Justice League: Trinity War" as PG-13 if I were using MPAA standards. There's a lot of violence and some language. Some folks might be offended by the amount of magic used in the book, especially with the characters from Justice League Dark being such a strong presence in the story. Most of the plot devices are based on Greek mythology and other cultural stories outside of Christianity. There are the seven deadly sins, but they're blended together with other concepts outside of Western Civilization's religious views.

A Variant Cover Gallery is included for the graphic novel version of "Justice League: Trinity War." We get seven pages of different artwork from the likes of Pasqual Ferry, Brad Anderson, Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund, Andrew Dalhouse, Mikel Janin, Vicente Fuentes, and Tomeu Morey. It's not as much bonus material as I'm sure they could've included, but it's still great work to look at.

"Justice League: Trinity War" does a great job of gathering together the agents of all three super powered teams in one book. There's something for every fan to enjoy within its pages. Some may find the inclusion of so many characters limits the amount of time each one gets in the limelight. Others will say the ends justify the means when it comes to the storyline. I agree with both sides, but still wished there was a little more Batman and Swamp Thing involved in the turmoil.

3.0 out of 5 stars One would expect more after years of waiting. 25 Mar 2014
By Peter Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In what was to be a major narrative story arch in the New 52 series ends up being an uneven story line with that misses on the big "twist" it makes at the end of the story line. The biggest disappointment, without spoiling the story, is the major build up with the Trinity of Sin that ends up being convoluted and leaves many unanswered questions (after reading one might themselves "are these big questions even relevant anymore?") In the end, Trinity War's arc offers nothing new to DC readers and maybe even to casual readers. I can't say that the story was poor in quality but rather dissatisfying after 2 years of much hype and solid build up.

Johns does it again with the best writing he has done to date. Janin's art work is the standout artistry of the Justice League books. For more information read Trinity War for yourselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected twist 14 April 2014
By Phillip Rodrigues - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS NO SPOILERS

This book revolves around Pandora and Pandora's box, if you read any of the previews. It has the Justice League trying to take control of the box, and this is a random step for DC. DC Comics doesn't usually have greek mythology revolve around one of their main story arc, but it works well. It is a very good read, and once you reach the climax you won't want to stop reading. I just didn't like the fact that some characters seemed unnecessary in the plot. I can't wait for Justice League Volume 5 (which continues this) and you should be excited too! Buy this book if you're looking for a great read and a fantastic cliff hanger!
