In the wake of Superman’s death, how do the world’s two best superheroes cope with the arrival of a new Superman? And how will the justice league move forward from here? These are the questions that Francis Manapul addresses in his visually striking and thought-provoking Trinity.

These are the most talented and proficient superheroes the world has ever known. What could be harder than saving the universe and the timeline countless times?

This comic gets right down to business and addresses some major issues for Batman and the rest of us. Who exactly is this new Superman and is he’s the loving and loyal all-American hero we know him to be? While traversing the pain of relationships lost with Diana and an imagined rivalry between The Amazonian princess and Lois, we also get to see how Batman feels about this new Superman and the fact he has an equally super, and very untrained, son.

Emotions run high as the Trinity tries to see how they should move forward from this tragedy until a blast from the past seems to raise more questions than they have answers.

Manapul heads forward from the trepidatious start of rebirth with a book that deals with not only the superhero world but the more human and personal side of these characters who in all their glory are just people. People distraught from the loss of a friend, the rise on new enemies, and some new allies they may or may not come to trust. His ability to bring these characters and their emotions to the forefront of the DC universe will keep me a faithful reader, and I can bet these books flying off of the shelves.
