Pretty, Fizzy Paradise

I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Huh, this Trinity thing sounds kind of interesting. On one hand, I kind of feel the same as Brainfreeze here. I mean, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman all have comics of their own, and in the case of the boys, multiple comics. On the other hand, I do like seeing Wonder Woman on an even keel with the guys. And I do think that using the big name heroes definitely means it ought to sell.

And it IS Busiek. I like Busiek.

I suppose I'll give it a shot at least. It'll be interesting to see what direction it goes in. Maybe there'll be some interesting team-ups and minor character appearances as well.

But the fan-entitled little brat inside my brain is still whining that my favorite character shares a title with a huge group of legends, growing bigger all the time, and gets maybe one line every five issues or so, while Batman and Superman get like five titles a piece.

Oh well, I'm sure I'll get over it. :-P

    I also think this is going to be too much for a weekly comic - I wanted to see something like this but I wanted it to replace Superman/Batman . . . and solely on principle, since I don't read the title.

    I'll be happy if the Trinity can be the spine giving a 52-style spotlight to peripheral characters.

    As unlikely as that probably seems...

    I'm thinking that I'll pick this up for the guest shots. If there is anything that we don't necessarily need, it is ANOTHER Superman/Batman title. Wonder Woman on the other hand, could use some additional exposure.

    52 and Countdown were a good way to get a peek at what some of the "B" and "C" listers were doing. I LIKE the "B" and "C" listers.

    I love the idea of the back-up. Busiek says it's very much a part of the story just with a different artist and a co-writer.

    I love this because this weekly is likely to sell well. I think it will sell better than Countdown but even if it sells the same amount as CD that's still 70-80K people reading it every week. That means if the back up guest-stars Blue Beetle, that's at least 50-60K more non-Blue Bleetle readers being exposed to the character, same with Checkmate, Catwoman and others. Unless the characterization is f--ed up, that has to be good for those titles.

    Busiek & Bagley. They could be doing a comic about the Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man and I'd read it. Busiek has written my favorite Superman in decades, so I can't wait to see what he'll do with the other two. I'm stoked.

    Busiek? Yeah, gotta admit I'm there. But honestly, they could axe Superman/Batman.

    Rob, I'd read a Stay Puff marshmellow story by ANYONE. Ghostbusters was a fundemental part of my childhood.

    I'm actually more intrigued about what's going to be in those backups than the main story.

    The Countdown/Countup/Trinity comics are good because they push second-tiers into the limelight, if only for a few books.

    Come to think of it, matsap -- I'd be all over a Sta-Puft comic too.

    I hope that Wonder Woman factors in huge in Trinity and this isn't just Superman/Batman + Wonder Woman. :)
