    Another interesting story lost in the process of stretching, cutting, crossing-over, and interweaving. Good art, great color, decent writing of a thin plot. The Pandora of mythology has been doomed to walk the earth, for the "sin" of curiosity (which supposedly unleashed evil upon the world). When she tries to reopen the box and eradicate the sins, the repercussions are world-wide and terrifying (and unfortunately, not contained in this title).

    I re-read this in the larger context of the Trinity War and the first part of Forever Evil, and the book works a lot better that way. There are still some problems, like how Pandora is clueless to a lot of what is going on, her mistakes in handling Vandal Savage, for instance, but she is a fairly interesting character. I really enjoyed Marcus the weaponsmith, and hope he doesn't completely disappear when this is all over. Changed from 2 to 3 stars.

    Not really sure what I feel about this comic. Interesting though. Hope Pandora and Marcus will be able to reassemble the box and get rid of evil. Interesting that Pandora's box is a skull.

    I really didn't find myself caring one iota about this character. She is apparently one of the most important characters in the new52 because everyone knows all about her past and they are trying to track her down because she is the key to some gigantic secret and she is some kind of immortal being and yadda yadda yadda. If she's so important, why doesn't she know any of the secrets of the universe she has lived in for tens of thousands of years. She seems just as surprised as everyone else when I really didn't find myself caring one iota about this character.

If she's so important, why doesn't she know any of the secrets of the universe she has lived in for tens of thousands of years. She seems just as surprised as everyone else when the proverbial muck hits the fan. Pandora is clueless. It's hard to judge this character though. All of the stories in this volume are supplementary tie-ins to other main events in the DCU, so "Pandora", at this point, is truly just a vessel for what didn't make it into the main pages of other headliner series. Perhaps if she were to have a standalone adventure of her own, Pandora could be seen as a more substantial character... but as she is written right now, she is just some random person surrounded by a lot of hullabaloo. 2/5

    I love Pandora as a character, I truly do. She's strong female character. Who happens to be part of the Trinity of Sin. Unfortunately this collection suffers from the Curse of being all tie-ins (no pun intended). Without the core issues would be infuriating to digest. Hopefully DC give Pandora a chance to shine on her own, because she has so much potential to grow as a character without having to rely on the Justice League titles.

    Po lekturze przygód Pandory byłem naprawdę zaskoczony, bo akurat część zeszytów z tego tomu wchodzi w skład wydarzenia zwanego Trinity War, przez co miałem praktycznie gwarancję, iż oderwane od siebie części, poprzedzielane fabularnie skrawkami innych albumów samodzielnie będą niezrozumiałe, tak tutaj się pomyliłem. Da się to zrobić odpowiednio dobrze. Jasne, miejscami były problemy skąd nagle tu się wzięły zastępy herosów, ale walka z grzechami była wypadkową tego co udało się przeczytać wcześn Po lekturze przygód Pandory byłem naprawdę zaskoczony, bo akurat część zeszytów z tego tomu wchodzi w skład wydarzenia zwanego Trinity War, przez co miałem praktycznie gwarancję, iż oderwane od siebie części, poprzedzielane fabularnie skrawkami innych albumów samodzielnie będą niezrozumiałe, tak tutaj się pomyliłem. Da się to zrobić odpowiednio dobrze. Jasne, miejscami były problemy skąd nagle tu się wzięły zastępy herosów, ale walka z grzechami była wypadkową tego co udało się przeczytać wcześniej, co dało jakiś podstawowy, wspólny trzon historii. To dlatego, że większość historii to przeszłość Pandory, pokazująca jak doszło do całego zamieszania, czyli odnalezienia Złotej Czaszki, która wyzwoliła na ten świat siedem grzechów głównych, a które mają to odpowiadać za okrucieństwa jakich dopuszczają się ludzie (tak, naiwne to), ale na horyzoncie pojawia się nadzieja, że wraz z ponownym otworzeniem Czachy uda się te istoty ponownie uwięzić. Jednak jak się okazuje sama Pandora nie jest w stanie tego zrobić i musi odnaleźć kogoś wyjątkowo złego lub dobrego. Zadanie nie jest proste i prowadzi do kilka newralgicznych punktów albumu. Pandora została ukarana za coś czego nie była winna. Zrobili to magowie odpowiedzialni za moce Shazama, a przy okazji skazali na taki a nie inny los Phantom Strangera oraz Question, który nie zna swojej tożsamości. Razem tworzą tytułową trójcę, aczkolwiek resztę uświadczymy tutaj w ilościach śladowych. Przyjrzymy się bardziej kobiecie, jak sobie radziła przez wieki. Było to całkiem spoko. Jej szkolenie. Relacja z jednym człowiekiem, niejakim Marcusem, który robi za jej zaopatrzeniowca w broń. Ale to i tak nic, bo nadchodzi Vandal Savage. Ich cała potyczka dała mi tyle frajdy (zwłaszcza, że do spotkania dochodzi tu de facto dwukrotnie). Jak to mi się podobało i zapewne odbiór tego jednego zeszytu rzutuje najmocniej na ocenę końcową. A potem nie jest gorzej. Widzimy Pandorę już po feralnym wydarzeniu, które zapoczątkowało Forever Evil. Tutaj pojawiła się chyba największa głupotka omawianego tomu. To nieszczęsne, chwilowe przeniesienie na inną zdewastowaną Ziemię, tylko aby pokazać efektowny zgon zdewastowanego odpowiednika Marsjańskiego Łowcy... Po co? Zbędny zabieg. Potem historia wraca na odpowiednie tory, choć i tak miałem zgryz z tym całym przewodniczącym Tajnego Stowarzyszenia. Niby ględzi, że za moment pojawi się Ultraman, jak tylko wykryje zmianę rytmu serca, ale... Dzieje się więcej i się złoczyńca nie fatyguje, co nieco psuje spójny odbiór wydarzeń związanych z "wyznaniem" prawdy co do zamiarów Syndykatu Zbrodni i tego jak to wszystko było zaplanowane. Niemniej końcówka działa i pozostawia niedosyt, zwłaszcza że zapowiada się świetnie. Co do rysunków, to kreska mi się podobała. Nie jest może nadmiernie "urodziwa", ale spełnia swoje zadanie, zwłaszcza przy tych maszkarach, jakie wypadły z Czachy (Pandora czy Savage wyglądają świetnie, choć taki Marcus to już nie za bardzo). Niemniej całość to pozytywne zaskoczenie i troszkę szkoda, że średnia ocen nie jest wyższa. Wiem z czego to wynika, ale historia Pandory spodobała mi się mimo wszytko. Daję 3.5/5

A girl named Pandora accidentally unleashed something on the world. Along with the Phantom Stranger and the Question, Pandora has been damned for eternity for her actions, but Pandora is out to change that. With help from an inventor named Marcus, Pandora wants to reclaim the box and capture her “children”…but Pandora might discover the box holds a far worse secret! Written by Ray Fawkes with additional stories by Geoff Johns, Trinity of Sin—Pandora Volume 1: The Curse is a spin-off title of the Trinity War series. The comic is tied to Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger and serves as a bridge between the New 52’s creation in Flashpoint and Forever Evil. Pandora was a character hanging around the New 52 DC Universe from the get-go. You saw flashes of her in Flashpoint with little explanation of who she was and her role in the start of the universe. Her character popped up a few times around the universe with her bigger appearances in Justice League collected her with the first issues of her series. Pandora represents everything good and bad about the comic book market. If you were a kid and you picked up the first issue of Pandora, you’d get a basic set-up for the series. The second issue however throws all the set-up to the wind. The book jumps to a Trinity War tie-in (not an actual part of the Trinity War) with no explanation of what’s going on or what is occurring. The next issue jumps to the aftermath and straight into Forever Evil. The book is not self-contained, but it also didn’t try to physically tie it to either story by having it be part of the crossover event…it is frustrating as a reader and makes you not want to read the series since it just fills like filler. This is too bad because Pandora herself has moments of interest. She pretty much takes the visual clues from Dark Horse Comics’ The Ghost (except in red) and shoots anything that comes at her (with little effect). Her character as someone wrongly damned however is great for exploration…it just isn’t explored well here. The art for the comic is solid, but issue like the Trinity War issues feature a lot of splash art with little context for pages. I am on the side that the art enhances the story more often the story enhances the art and this book relies on the story being ignored for chunks to look at the art which seems weak. Trinity of Sin—Pandora 1: The Curse is an unfortunate byproduct of the current comic market. It is a book you read and doesn’t make sense due to the comic “big event” trends, but it is also a book you read and question why it was ever green-lit. Pandora cannot carry the comic more than a few storylines unless it is fantastic…which it isn’t. You read this comic and realize it is doomed for cancellation. Trinity of Sin—Pandora 1: The Curse was followed by the final volume Trinity of Sin—Pandora 2: Choices.

    Pandora was a very interesting character that I didn't expect to like so much. We see her being cursed for opening a box that was actually an alien gate to a darker world and a prison to evil spirits,that unleashed the darker urges in humanity's soul.

    Onestamente, non mi è chiaro il senso del personaggio di Pandora. Ad ogni modo, poiché dopo aver letto questa storia ho scordato tutto in meno di mezz'ora, direi che rientra a buon diritto nelle schifezze che il New 52 ha propinato ai lettori di tutto il mondo, specialmente quelli che, come me, si erano riavvicinati alla DC con speranza. insipido e inutile.

    Ten komiks w zamierzeniu pewnie wyglądał ciekawiej. To, co rzeczywiście z niego zostało to kilometry ekspozycji. Pandora musiała być bardzo oporna w nauce, skoro przez te 10 tysięcy lat nie zrozumiała czegoś takiego jak wolna wola i entropia we wszechświecie. Nawet to, że istnieją inne cywilizacje poza Ziemią nie otworzyło jej oczu.

    The New 52 is a tapestry - individual threads pulled together or apart to make a bigger picture. Some sections can be seen on their own, but other pieces weave between the other strands, and tie them together. Without the context of the other strands, they do not suffice on their own.

Some sections can be seen on their own, but other pieces weave between the other strands, and tie them together. Without the context of the other strands, they do not suffice on their own. Trinity of Sin Pandora is one of those. It comes close, but a key plot point (Pandora is facing down the seven sins she released, and is finally able to actually interact with them) is brought up, then the issue fades to black and suddenly we're elsewhere and it's all been resolved. And it isn't explained. At all. It's like a missing reel from a movie, and that reel includes the center of the movie and a plot shift, changing the direction. Both of these things happen outside of the issues collected here, which leaves what's left a tattered remnant. Which is too bad - the concept of Pandora fighting back against the evils she released is an interesting concept, and the way it's tied into the history is interesting too. But the missing piece is too big an obstacle to recommend this book. I don't even know where that story piece is resolved in the greater tapestry, and there's no hint in the collection to guide me. So if you've read everything, this might be good to have as a refresher. But if you're not seeing the whole tapestry, this is a piece of connective thread that disappears at the wrong time and leaves the reader unsatisfied. Looking at it again, it may not be the collection's fault - it may be the entire story went that way. Somebody put a cigarette against it and burned a hole, thinking it made it more mysterious. If so, that's even worse. Either way, its absence makes the whole book pretty useless.

    Devoid of the context of DC’s The New 52, this volume on its own frustratingly hints at an understandable larger story without providing enough for it to be read on its own. Those who have been following or who will take the time to fill in gaps may find enough to understand and enjoy the volume. However, without it, the gaps are too large and are an obstacle to getting much, if anything, from this volume. Too much knowledge is assumed, and characters come in and out without sufficient explanati Devoid of the context of DC’s The New 52, this volume on its own frustratingly hints at an understandable larger story without providing enough for it to be read on its own.

This is a pity as the idea of Pandora and the sins is interestingly handled, and could have been better enjoyed within a better explained and understood context.

    Contains chunks tied in to both Trinity War and Forever Evil. I would like to have seen more Vandal Savage. It's offputting with the tie-ins. Pandora has a realization in her battle against the sins, but on the next page the story has pushed forward and you have no idea how here battle resolved.

    Doesn't stand on it's own. You need to be reading several other New 52 series to understand this. I didn't know anything about Pandora by the end, and not because that was the intent, but because the writing was pretty terrible.

    This is exactly my kind of thing, so of course I loved this. The art is good, and the story is mystical and mythological enough to keep me reading. This story is missing parts, I assume they are in other storylines. But overall, fun! And I want more.

    enjoyed the concept, myth and artwork. gorgeous inking. this origin story served as a minor tie-in to the New 52's universe. expected a stand-alone, but it's not-- hence the a series of black screens (which was pretty trippy). probably makes a lot more sense when read with Trinity of Sin!

    Nice start but to disjointed without the crossover issues. Is it to much for DC to put in addendums mentioning where the story is continued?
