    With issues #5-9 of TRINITY solicited in the May Previews, DC Comics announces the second month of this special ordering incentive. To qualify to make full returns on TRINITY #5-9, retailers must place final orders on each of these issues equal to or greater than their orders on COUNTDOWN TO FINAL CRISIS #1 (FEB080180).
