'Trinity Vol. 1: Better Together' by Francis Manapul was a story that I read a couple single issues of. Based on that, I really liked it, but seeing the story arc was kind of a let down.
In the DC Rebirth world, there is a new Superman who is married to Lois and has a son named Jon. Lois thinks it would be a good idea to have a dinner party with Batman and Wonder Woman to clear the air and start a relationship up. It starts off weird and gets weirder as the three are caught in something called the White Mercy and forced to relive earlier memories. This starts off a retelling of sorts of the origins of each of these three.
It is a reboot series, but if the origins haven't changed all that much, then I don't think we need to retread that ground. The story starts out really good, and I even liked Clark's flashback, but the way the story was wrapped up left me feeling mediocre about it. I really liked the art in this volume, and I hope the series can find some footing, because it's got potential.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
