Out of the darkest recesses of the 20th century...the War-Monger returns to rage against
the combined might of Valiant's most elite superteam!

For thousands of years, the Eternal Warrior has waged battle; and for thousands of years, one
spirit has vexed him...the spirit of warfare itself. Today, Gilad Anni-Padda and his teammates in Unity must reckon with a long-thought-forgotten enemy-unseen since Unit-Y faced it in World War II-now returned to bring destruction and death to the heroes once and for all. Unity may not survive the coming of War-Monger!

    Unity #20 is a solid issue that slightly suffers by focusing more on Warmonger's previous battles with former Unity teams as opposed to the current situation and her plans. The previous battles are entertaining, and the artwork is wonderful but after a while it feels like Warmonger's stature as a villain is just being diminished. However, the flashback stories are entertaining and hopefully next issue the focus will be more on the current situation and threat. Read Full Review

    Some might disagree, but a spade is a spade; for a title called Unity, we needed more “unity” with how the artwork comes together in #20 (as well as #19). A potential solution could be touse one artist, or at least two thatcompliment each other's styles. This title is solid enough to demand as much. Read Full Review

    For a creator with as varied ideas as Kindt has, this arc is suffering from a case of deja vu in following a narrative structure similar to the previous arc. However, there is enough structural differentiation to enable it to stand on its own. Read Full Review

    Overall things could just be better. Who knows what the next story arc will have in store for us, but right now it wouldn't hurt if to just skip this story altogether. This is a superhero story and that is not the vibe that this gives off, It comes off direction-less and that is not what we want to see from Unity. It can be so much more for the events up to this point that have shaped the Valiant Universe. To keep interest for those that are giving this a chance there needs to be less censored profanity(as in saturation of profanity as a whole, we get that she's bad), less walking through past versions of Unity that we already know probably exist, and give us something with more appeal to keep us drawn in.

    Kindt's material is readable and keeps you interested in where the story's going, but it could have been arranged better. However, the art is still easy on the eyes and the writing is still strong enough that it's not a dealbreaker. Read Full Review
