    DC COMICS’ NEW WEEKLY SERIES TRINITY BEGINS WITH AN EXTRA-SIZED DEBUT ISSUE

    TRINITY, the new weekly series that reunites the Thunderbolts creative team of writer Kurt Busiek and penciller Mark Bagley, is set to make its explosive debut in June with an extra-sized 40-page issue at the regular series price of $2.99!

    Busiek, Bagley and inker Art Thibert write and illustrate the lead stories for this series, which begins by exploring the unusual bond — and importance — of DC's top three characters, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, as a mysterious dream links them together and may prophesy important changes in their trinity!

    Busiek is joined on TRINITY’s second features by cowriter Fabian Nicieza. The second feature in issue #1, illustrated by Scott McDaniel & Andy Owens, looks at the mysterious connection between the villains who are watching the Trinity — as well as the future for these characters and the world!

    Second features in issues #2-4 star some of the other important players in this epic storyline, with art by Tom Derenick & Wayne Faucher (on issue #2’s second feature), Mike Norton & Jerry Ordway (on issue #3), and the teams of McDaniel & Owens and Norton & Ordway (on issue #4).

    TRINITY issues #1-4 are solicited in the April Previews, and are scheduled to arrive in stores in June with cover prices of $2.99 U.S. each.

    DC COMICS INTRODUCES TRINITY WITH SPECIAL RETAILER SALES INCENTIVE

    With the first issue of TRINITY, DC Comics’ new weekly series, scheduled to arrive in stores on June 4, DC announces that the first four issues of TRINITY will be fully returnable for qualifying Diamond retailers.

    Retailers must meet DC’s qualification levels each month to take advantage of this incentive. To qualify to make returns on TRINITY #1-4, retailers must place final orders on each of these issues equal to or greater than their orders on COUNTDOWN TO FINAL CRISIS #4 (FEB080177).

    Qualifying retailers will be required to return stripped covers from returnable issues of TRINITY and an affidavit of destruction to Diamond Comic Distributors at a date to be named later. Retailers will then be issued credit for each copy, minus 10% of the cover price ($.29).

    TRINITY issues #1-4 are solicited in the April Previews.
