Dan DiDio on DC’s ‘Trinity’ and ‘Final Crisis’
As we reported recently, the upcoming DC project featuring a story by Kurt Busiek and art by Mark Bagley finally has a name: Trinity. DC announced the project at last weekend’s retailers summit, and have now begun providing some additional details about the series, as well as their other upcoming event series, Final Crisis.
In an interview with IGN, DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio sheds some light on both projects, and adds that the publisher learned some important lessons from comparing the structures of two of their most recent event-driven storylines, Sinestro War and Countdown.
When you work with a smaller group of creators, you have a much tighter control over what the message of the story is, and a much tighter sense of what that story is, and how to build momentum and excitement in that story. So we’re trying to do that right now, and we have a number of things that will be occurring throughout the DCU that really have that tightness, but also that large sense of scope.
So when you see Final Crisis occurring, it’ll have a tight but incredibly expansive story in regards to what’s being covered and the characters involved, but there are only going to be a handful of creators that will be working through the Final Crisis story. Kurt has a stranglehold in a very good way on Trinity and Trinity’s story for the year run of the book, and more importantly, you’ll see similar things like that occurring in the Batman group of books, the Superman group of books, and even more things building along those lines in some of the other series over the course of the next year.
