Welcome to week eight of What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.
In TRINITY OF SIN: THE PHANTOM STRANGER #9, which hit stores today, readers saw The Stranger traveling to Hell on a quest to save the souls of his wife and kids. In next month’s issue #10, his search for his family will take him to Heaven. Cue Zauriel.
Acting as a guide of sorts to help The Stranger locate his family, Zauriel has actually been connected to The Stranger for centuries … but why? And when The Stranger butts up against the strict rules of Heaven, there’ll be severe consequences – and it’ll be up to Zauriel to make sure he pays. Can Zauriel keep The Stranger in check long enough to avoid big conflict? You’ll have to wait to find out, but in the meantime, check out Mikel Janin’s awesome character design below.
