I’m trying to quit smoking again (third time is the charm?), so forgive me if I write anything that makes no sense — I’m having a slightly hard time concentrating on anything for longer than, say, 60 seconds or so, and I’ve got aches all over.
Has to happen, however — when I come down with Tonsillitis and/or Strep Throat TWICE in like 6 weeks, there’s a good sign your body is trying to tell you something.
But that has nothing to do with anything related to comics, so let’s talk about TRINITY #1 instead.
Unlike COUNTDOWN #1, er, #51, which after reading it was clear was really really bad, and probably wouldn’t get any better TRINITY is decently solid superhero material — nothing exceptionally wonderful, but nothing offensively poor either. In the best possible sense of the word, this is journeyman material, probably pretty close to exactly the same level material that got your reading comics in the first place.
It won’t cure cancer (or win an Eisner!), but there are far worse comics you could waste your time and money with; and it gives you everything you need to know to get what’s going on (though the gag of not mentioning “Enigma”‘s name in the back half was pretty annoying), which, in 2008, puts it way ahead of almost all of it’s contemporaries. So, I’m going to go with a low GOOD.
What did YOU think?
