    Much of what makes Unity #23 work so well is Asmus' play with the team dynamics. There is plenty of banter between Livewire, Ninjak, and Eternal Warrior " with just a subtle amount of humor " to make these characters feel like living beings, which serves to raise the tension further.

    Despite the reveal that readers could see coming, Unity #23 marks a new direction for the series that will get many back on board now that the War Monger story arc is over. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 14, 2015

    Since we already know how the series finally is going to go down, it's safe to assume this story will wrap up with the next issue and that's okay. It's a nice quick story and I kind of wish that there had been more like this over the course of the series. It brought a different perspective to the team, but then also made me want to see what series writer Matt Kindt would answer with. We'll never know since the series is sadly ending, but maybe it'll return in some form. In the meantime, this is a great issue to pick up if you've been following either Unity or the Valiant U.

    Asmus effectively set up the stakes in this issue, combining a tense plot with good characterizaiton and banter. Unfortunately we know that the there are no real lasting ramifications (such is the way of comics) as this takes place prior to BOOK OF DEATH. However, this seems to work quite well as a last hurrah for the team and the title. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Justin Wright Oct 15, 2015

    The art work is solid in this book. Diego Bernard doesn't phone in a single panel and I was not once confused by anything I was seeing. The story by James Asmus was tight and relatively easy to follow. But as a new reader of Unity, and Valiant in general, I don't know these characters. I don't know their backgrounds or stories, I'm not invested in this Armor Hunter's story, and this issue gave me no reason to care about or root for any of these characters. This isn't a book I'd recommend for a newcomer to this universe necessarily. But if you know and like reading these characters, you'll probably enjoy reading this issue and part 2, next month in issue #24. Read Full Review
