TRINITY WAR, the action-mystery event of the summer, begins with a full-length epic adventure! The death of a hero ignites a violent war among the Justice Leagues! It’s League vs. League vs. League as an impending darkness approaches the DC Universe. But the truth behind it all will lead to an evil that threatens every hero on the planet. And what does the Secret Society of Super-Villains have to with this? Everything.

This is a dumb question, but is Watchmen in continuity with the rest of the DC Universe?
BANEofExistence - 7/8/2013, 11:37 AM
WOnder Woman "when I deal with them, I deal with them.." a well spoken warrior. Works for Her and Aquaman... Im glad to see Billys respect for Teth "Black" Adam and He better return! If hes "dead" ill be pissed. Hes one of the best (And underrated) villains!

Any guesses on which hero will die? Im guessing its going to be Shazam (by Black Adams hand) considering hes never shown in the trinity war artwork (But in the first promo we do see Black Adam)

I like the art but I can't stand the destruction and violence when super powered beings fights. It makes my head hurt. Waaaaahhhhh!
jlabatman - 7/8/2013, 12:08 PM
Love the artwork, storyline leading to Trinity War has me intrigued!
Bodwulf - 7/8/2013, 12:12 PM
I like the Captain's new suit.
Fastestmanalive - 7/8/2013, 1:20 PM
Cant wait, two more days, gonna be amazing.

Not really huge of Wondy but she does come off pretty bad ass in that preview

"There's a reason I don't have a long villains list, when I deal with them, I DEAL with them."

Awesome, best line in comics this year.

CAN'T WAIT!!!!! TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dmon - 7/8/2013, 2:01 PM
Wait what does Batman's card say in Madam Xanadu deck? I must know. I bet Constantine's says Con Job or Jerk. I am loving him in the JLD.
Dmon - 7/8/2013, 2:11 PM
I am reading Phantom Stranger #4 right now trying to catch up should finish them all today. But I have read all the JLs and JLDs so far.
jp688 - 7/8/2013, 2:12 PM
I could have sworn the art was Neal Adams.
Fastestmanalive - 7/8/2013, 2:57 PM

Phantom stranger is great, took me a few issues to warm up to but it is a pretty unique and cool series.

I just hope they bring back Tan for the art, his style worked perfectly with the vibe of the series.
InfiniteMonkey - 7/8/2013, 3:14 PM
The Art usually sells it for me. Wow.
Dmon - 7/8/2013, 3:21 PM
@Fastestmanalive Yeah I skimmed over Constantine but will read it all the way through next. So far I am caught up on JL, JLD, Earth 2, and Injustice. I am even finished reading Firestorm also, I have had a soft spot for the character ever since I was a little kid when he was on Super-Friends suck its getting cancel because it was getting a lot better. At least he is in the JL now. After Constantine I am going to get caught up with Flash, GL books and Aqua-Man next.
Kyos - 7/8/2013, 4:50 PM
Muahaha, nice one, blackandyellow!! :D
OrionPax - 7/8/2013, 4:50 PM
@blackandyellow HA!Right?Looking forward to this story.And really digging The Stranger,Question,and Pandora's place in the new DCU
Fastestmanalive - 7/8/2013, 6:25 PM
Yea, I'm a big fan of Firestorm too, read all of the original series as a kid so I really like him. Plus cool and different look and powers.

I liked it when Jurgens took over with zero issue by bringing him back to his original roots but sadly it ended.

Flash is hit and miss, the second story arc with the rouges was great but the Grodd one was a waste of time.

GL books are mostly good and Aquaman is great as a long narrative ala Geoff Johns. imo.

But favorite book out there for me now is JL, since the Atlantis story has been amazing.

Anyways enjoy and happy reading.
Dmon - 7/8/2013, 7:02 PM
@Fastestmanalive Yeah JL and JLD have been my favs. I just read Earth 2 because the story has been interesting enough that I want to see where it is going but hate the new costumes they are really bad and I hate how and where GL gets his powers now. I don't buy that comic I just read it. lol

And I am also just reading Injustice to see where it is going, its basically an Alternate Universe where the only thing really different is that Superman thinks Lex is a good guy and he is friends with him. Which is crazy because the reader has no idea of this and several issues in he just pops up and you are like WTF. Don't think that part was well written. And of course it starts out with the Joker doing something to Superman.

Hopefully DC brings in some of Wonder Woman's past rogues in the New 52.
LEOSTRATOR - 7/8/2013, 10:38 PM
Please kill cyborg!
MightyZeus - 7/9/2013, 1:34 AM
I'm hyped for this.

I have a feeling this is going to be worth reading.
lucio7lopez - 7/9/2013, 5:22 AM
Mark Waid write a hard critic against this story arc!! Too much destruction and Wonder Woman out of character for a woman!!

Embassada - 7/9/2013, 6:20 AM
I'm more of an Superman and Batman fan than Wonde Woman but that dealing with villains line she gave Superman makes heroes like them look like naive buffoons.
miklonus - 7/9/2013, 12:11 PM
Thanks for that link Dragonpiece.
