The struggle against X-O Manowar continues this week in the Valiant crossover Unity #2.
Toyo Harada’s first wave of infiltrators, a team of Harbingers was largely unsuccessful, and Ninjak got himself captured by the Visigoth and is now trapped in the Vine ship in Romania.
Does none of that make sense to you?
Don’t worry, with only two issues in, you can start from the beginning and get a sense of story.
Valiant, by design, is making their second wave of comics great jumping on points for new readers, and are attracting more with consistent five-star reviews for this Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) written crossover limited series.
In issue #2, Livewire, Eternal Warrior and Harada infiltrate the ship and tap into the virtual controls, in attempt to rescue Ninjak and save the planet from Aric’s invasion.
The virtual reality fight scenes drawn by Doug Braithwaite ramp the action up to eleven, making for a true page turner.
I’m telling you, drop event comics from the big two and hop on Unity. Valiant is doing it right.
Explosive action with real consequences to characters you’ve just met makes for the best kind of comics.
Not sure quite yet? Wait for the reasonably priced trade in a few months.
