Upcoming Issue Of Trinity Changed By DC Comics Due To "Political Fatigue"

Bleeding Cool reported changing creative teams and story details on an upcoming issue of Trinity from DC Comics. Happens all the time, but one thing that did stick out that the original story had Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman protecting a bigoted hate speaker from an angry mob, that seemed ripped out of the recent headlines with Milo Yiannopoulous visiting UC Berkeley to give a talk, to find it cancelled after protest and riots.

t7Turns out that story was proposed and approved would have been approved long before those events. But as the comics' creators juggled their schedules and deadlines, the observation was made that there may be political fatigue setting in amongst superhero comics readers. And so this three part story written by Francis Manapul and drawn by Clay Mann was pulled and replaced with a one-off story by Cullen Bunn and Clay Mann, with a new story to follow.

It will not be returned to. But Francis Manapul did Instagram out that he will be back on the title with issue 9.

Manapul is one of the most innovative and engaging creators at DC Comics, and the books that he writes and draws are a constant treat. But it looks like it's not just Marvel who have concerns about reining in the politics right now.
