DC announced some new details about their upcoming Trinity War event over the weekend, while most of the Outhouse staff was away. Here's some of the highlights:
- Trinity War will be a 6 issue crossover event between Justive League, Justice League of America and Justice League Dark. The event will be co-written by Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire, with art provided by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado (Justice League), Doug Mahnke (Justice League of America) and Mikel Janin (Justice League Dark).
- The series will feature the assorted Justice League teams fighting each other. Johns hinted that there's an outside force at play. Johns stated that minor characters such as Shazam, the Atom, Element Woman and Frankenstein will all have major roles in the series.
- Trinity War sets up "some pretty crazy stuff" in the DC Universe that starts in August. If Rich Johnston's to be believed, that could mean the rumored weekly series that are due to begin this fall. More importantly,Trinity War will probably continue Geoff Johns' recent trend of having a continuous stream of event crossovers in his books, like a human centipede with no end in sight.
- Dr. Light will be appearing in the book. We don't know who, and frankly no one cares. However, if it's Arthur Light, you better hide yo' kids, and hide yo' wives.
You'd think after a weekend to rest and recharge, we'd come up with something more creative or snarky to say. Honestly, though, a six issue crossover is probably the most boring thing that DC could come up with for its first major event. Boring and uninspired seems to be what DC does nowaday, so I guess that shouldn't surprise anyone.
