Summary:

Well, if you’re looking for something new, that’s packed with great art, writing and coloring from start to finish, then do your comic/geeky self a favor and pick up the first issue of Unity, from Valiant Comics. After just one issue, this is a series that delivers action, great characters and a hefty punch of comic goodness, that will leave you clamoring for issue two.

Do you find yourself growing tired of the same-old, same-old “big events” in comics? You know, the ones that promise “nothing will ever be the same again” and “it all ends here” – only to be left holding the comic bag with nothing to show for it. 

Well, if you’re looking for something new, that’s packed with great art, writing and coloring from start to finish, then do your comic/geeky self a favor and pick up the first issue of Unity, from Valiant Comics. After just one issue, this is a series that delivers action, great characters and a hefty punch of comic greatness, that will leave you clamoring for issue two.

Minor spoilers ahead.

With Unity, you’ll find yourself immersed in a book with fast-paced action, heroes that actually die (don’t worry – I’m not giving too much away) and a book that will leave you happy as hell you picked it up.

Now, if you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of reviews that give you spoiler after spoiler, but hey, I’ve gotta give you something right? A little intrigue? A bit of mystery? And a lot of action? Well, all the previous questions I just tossed out all show up in Unity #1. Here’s what you need to know: the world is in a panic after Aric – you may know him simply as X-O Manowar – has taken his people to reclaim their land, Dacia. Only problem: he’s taken over Romania to do so. It’s up to the world’s most ruthless individual Toyo Harada and his newly formed team, Unity, to overthrow and kill X-O Manowar. Okay, I am going to stop there and leave it up to you to march into your comic shop and demand your first issue of Unity.

With the great writing of Matt Kindt, stunning art of Doug Braithwaite and wicked colors by Brian Weber, I give this book 4.5 out of 5.

And finally, for all of the successful titles under its belt – including the latest addition of Unity – Valiant Comics is definitely giving fans a universe to jump into, while at the same time, nipping at the heels of the “big two.”

Let me know what you think of Unity in the comments below. Have fun and keep reading.
