Mankind is locked in a life or death struggle against the alien Armor Hunters, and the fate of civilization itself now lies with the the unlikely team of short-tempered walking weapons called Unity!

    The creative team takes readers for a breathtaking visual dive that pays off. Small and few steps in the story are taken, but excellent art execution drives the issues and keeps eyes entertained the whole way through. Read Full Review

    UNITY #10 offers thrilling action that's back-up by some solid artwork and a surprising amount of heart. Kindt has thrown these characters right into Valiant's latest big event and the end result is a legitimately exciting and even slightly emotional experience. Even completely new readers will be moved by the intro and the creative team does an effective job showing us just how much this event is impacting ordinary people and not just immortal soldiers and slick ninjas. It may not feel like a mandatory read, but it's definitely something worthy of your time and attention. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Aug 11, 2014

    While Armor Hunters proper and even the Bloodshot tie-in stand tallest so far in this event, Unity is certainly giving them a run for their money. Kindt really, truly, never fails to impress and both Segovia and Milla more than deliver on this issue. If you didnt already get it before in any of the other reviews done for the Armor Hunters event, you really, really need to be reading this. Comic book master classes almost every week, folks. Valiant more than deserves your attention and money. Check. This. Out! Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Aug 18, 2014

    Unity #10 manages to completely reverse my earlier opinions about artist Stephen Segovia'swork. When he does straight Sci-Fi, he pulls himself far away from the 90s art comparisons, making this Valiant book feel as modern as it should. The robotic facial expressions feel a bit too childlike to convey a sense of dread, but his sleek designs and body language do carry a fair amount of emotion. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Matt Deery Aug 13, 2014

    Unity is a great tie in to the Armor Hunters storyline; it provides great development for character that in this type of story would not usually receive it. There is also great action and it ties into the overall storyline really well, and shows that Valiant knows how to do a crossover really well. Read Full Review

    Unity #10 was a solid issue at best. Some things did feel off, but overall it does deliver one giving you a better understanding of whats going on in this event from different perspectives. In general what Unity has consistently done well is showing you more than what you see on the surface in the other books connected to the Armor Hunters event. As we approach the climax to this story hopefully it's one that leaves us as satisfied as we should be considering how it all started. Read Full Review

    Although readers will need to be following the main crossover for all of these elements to make sense, it's an issue that's well worth adding to the pile for any Valiant reader. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 13, 2014

    This week both Armor Hunters and Unity surprised me by being different. They weren't the stock standard event books and they were even different from their own previous issues. That's actually pretty impressive that both managed to do that and still deliver. If you're just reading Unity then fear not you're still in for one hell of story this month. Read Full Review

    Unity #10 gives insight into GIN-GR, one of the more intriguing armor hunters, and makes her a more rounded character but aside from that it adds very little to the armor hunters event. Livewire's reaction to her interfacing with GIN-GR was intriguing and has potential that could play out soon but that remains to be seen. Ninjak's battle with an alien hound was reminiscent of last issue so instead of being impressive it felt as a way to just fill an issue despite being well-executed. I'm not sure what next issue will cover in terms of the team's role in the conclusion of the event but I am looking forward to seeing how things will ultimately start to line up in the aftermath so I'm optimistic about that.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Aug 14, 2014

    It's not a bad issue, as there's some legitimately affecting moments, but considering the great job Unity has done at standing out throughout this event, issue #10 just doesn't quite cut it. That said, it's still dang pretty, artist Stephen Segovia delivering his usual blend of high-octane action and dramatic character work. Read Full Review

    Kindt is stomping around neutral grounds with the tenth issue of Unity. While it appears that he may be slowly stripping off the groundwork to whatever it is that the Armor Hunters crossover is building up to, all the creative choices he made in Issue #10 were all safe bets. We were treated with an all-too familiar second act, but were left hanging to introduce a much bigger threat. Gin-Gr's origin story was poignant, but it isn't really easy to try to relate to something that just burned the whole of Mexico to a pulp. This feels like a skippable chapter, if you're only into Unity for the whole part of the Armor Hunters crossover, but not a bad read over-all for regular readers of the comic. Read Full Review
