    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Aug 13, 2015

    This issue presented us with a richer history of War Monger and the Valiant Universe in general while setting up the beginnings of a final confrontation between Unity and the War Monger. There was a lot of solid characterization here. The art was definitely full of detail and stunning on both sections of the story. The contrast of styles didn't hurt this issue at all as the previous issues and this issue's journey down memory lane actually made sense why the style of our present is gritty in an odd kind of sense. And as we close in on our final battle between Unity and War Monger … the question is … how do they stop her? It makes a lot of sense and the plots close in tightly for a large finale.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 17, 2015

    With strong art by Jose Luis, Alisson Rodrigues and Jefte Palo, and a terrific story being built by Matt Kindt, this is a series you should be picking up (although it's probably a bit too brutal for young readers). Read Full Review

    Unity #21 is an entertaining ride that makes the overall story arc more intriguing with the revelation at the end of this issue. Despite the Warmonger's routine being the same as the previous 2 issues, the flashbacks this time around are more entertaining, and the lines Warmonger uses to justify telling them fit perfectly in shaping the tone of this story arc. I'm still not a huge fan of the artwork for the current events but there aren't many panels with it. So I can't wait to see how Warmonger will be dealt with one last time. Read Full Review

    This is not to be harsh, though Unity is that title you have big hopes for from Valiant. Again you would rather hold off till the end of this story arc before getting back into the series. Read Full Review

    All told, it's going to take one doozy of a finale to leave this arc well remembered. Read Full Review

    If you haven't kept up with this storyline, then I would just wait another issue for a fresh start. Frankly, I was riding high on this series, but this storyline has knocked me back down to earth and made me (to borrow a line from Steve) cautiously optimistic. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Alex Nader Aug 17, 2015

    This arc has been getting a bit repetitive, as I mentioned earlier. I like the concept of War-Monger but I'd rather see something other than bleeped out cursing and disgust towards Unity members, and maybe more background or forward movement. That being said, I think that Kindt is adding a lot of lore and potential for future stories. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Aug 10, 2015

    While the idea of War Monger is good on paper, Kindt has failed to give her any sense of complexity beyond her love of cursing. It has made Unity a chore to read, salvaged only by Jose Luis's art. Sadly, he only provides art for half the issue, as Jefte Palo takes over for most of the second half, and it just is not very good. Readers might be better off waiting for this arc to conclude before picking Unity up right now. It certainly isn't worth the $3.99 price tag. Read Full Review
