    DC COMICS OFFERS RETAILERS VIDEO TRAILER FOR TRINITY ISSUE #1 OF NEW WEEKLY NOW ON FINAL ORDER CUTOFF

    With anticipation building for the new weekly series TRINITY, DC Comics announces that a video trailer for the series has been posted at Diamond's retailer website.

    Retailers can download the trailer by going to https://retailer.diamondcomics.com/...ls&pf=\DC_retailer_promos/video/TRINITY_8.mov. DC encourages retailers to post it at their websites, put it on a disc to run on a computer in your store, or use it any other way you can think of.

    DC also reminds retailers that TRINITY #1 (APR080162) is on Final Order Cutoff on Thursday, May 15. This 40-page debut issue, featuring the regular series price of $2.99, has a lead story by writer Kurt Busiek and artists Mark Bagley & Art Thibert, a second feature by writers Kurt Busiek & Fabian Nicieza and artists Scott McDaniel & Andy Owens, and a cover by artists Carlos Pacheco & Jesus Merino.

    As the series begins, DC's top three characters - Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman - find they are linked together by a mysterious dream that may prophesy important changes in their trinity! And this issue's second feature looks at the mysterious connection between the villains who are watching the Trinity - as well as the future for these characters and the world!

    And don't forget - retailers may make full returns on TRINITY #1-4 by placing 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 #1 (APR080162) is solicited in the April Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on June 4.

    Batman 677 is still shipping in 2 weeks? That's gotta be a fill-in artist or something already then or DC is just waiting until next week to announce it's delay.
