Straight Forward Reviews : Unity # 2

Valiant's Unity marches forward as Harada and his group continue in their fight against X-O Manowar. Is it worth keeping up with?

Writer - Matt Kindt

Artist - Doug Brathwaite

Publisher - Valiant

Review by Jeremias de Leon


In this issue tensions rise to a boiling point. Or perhaps it's safer to say the action escalates further. The threat of the power of X-O Manowar and of Russia's weapons has everyone moving with a heightened sense of purpose to save millions.

Harada recruits Livewire so they can attack Manowar themselves. Ninjak tries to recoup and the Eternal Warrior really doesn't do much of anything. Manowar puts up one heck of a fight against the multi pronged attack Harada plans and something crazy happens.

There is no way I am going to spoil what happens as a result of this attack,  you'll just have to read it for yourself to know.

The dialog in this issue is fantastic and the pacing keeps you on the edge of your seat. The narration has you thinking for a bit as well.


The art at first, just at first, like say the first page or two doesn't really scream that it's special. Just really competent and technically well done. But as the comic goes on the art goes on to capture my imagination. Something about the actions later on in this book and the way the art shows really makes you feel the gravity of the events. It's amazing.


Unity just goes on to keep kicking butt. The narrative in this story just keeps going to new places. Except for Eternal Warrior looking pretty much useless everything else in this comic, the narration, the dialog, and the art gel together for a pretty amazing story. I give Unity # 2 a 9.5 out of 10
