Dearest readers! Brian Truitt, that most handsome of USA Today reporters, has today revealed what DC’s Trinity War event will actually be about. There were thoughts this might be about the trinity of Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman, or even the trinity of Phantom Stranger, The Question, and Pandora — but no! This will instead be a crossover storyline between the three Justice League groups!

Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire will write the event, working together on Justice League of America, but with Johns in charge of Justice League and Lemire writing Justice League Dark. A crossover event rather than a standalone miniseries, the story will begin in Justice League #22, drawn by Ivan Reis. Doug Mahnke will then take over for Justice League of America, before lovely Mikel Janin draws Justice League Dark. The overall storyline will be six issues long, and the mathematical sorts amongst you will realise that means two issues of each series will be involved.
The storyline? Well, no idea on that one. The three teams all seem set to fight, and subplots will be involved – such as the traitor within the Justice League, the power struggle between Constantine and Zatana, and probably the incredibly unlikely fight between Katana and Wonder Woman. Joe Prado will also be involved in the artwork for the crossover. It’s all super-vague, but this is the touchstone which DC have been working towards for a long while now – their ability to nail the finish will be crucial for the long-term viability of DC as a creative brand.
The storyline starts in July.
