    There is currently no team-book on the superhero comic book line that gets me as excited as Unity. Matt Kindt's smooth and versatile storytelling continues, with artist CAFU knocking his script out of the park. I'm pretty sure this issue featured one of my favorite Valiant Comics action sequences yet. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper and Brandon Burpee Apr 11, 2014

    CAFU is a beast man. A complete beast. He's got this weird gift of making his work seem both really clean and infused with an old school like feel, but still somehow layering some grit into it. I'm not sure how he does it, but this book really goes to the next level with him on the book, even considering how good Doug Braithwaite was on this book. Whether you're talking about X-O taking on a billion soldiers or the back story for Dr. Silk, this is a guy who can make any scene and situation work, and he's not only one of the better artists working at Valiant, but someone who you can really see growth in since he started working.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Apr 10, 2014

    CAFU's art is superb. There's one page in particular, which features the male members of the team bursting into action, that Valiant should consider making a poster. It's beautiful stuff. Of course, the not every page looks as great as that one, but highs are so high they more than make up for some of the stiffer moments. Unity has some nice action set pieces and it looks like there are more to come, which is great news because CAFU excels at movement and action. Brian Reber's colors are bright and intense, as usual. If nothing else, this issue of Unity looks freaking great. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 10, 2014

    Overall this was a solid issue. I personally expected a bit more from the confrontation between Unity and Dr. Silk, but obviously there are bigger things to come now that the threat has been established. It's good since you know that there won't just be a bunch of fighting rather than them taking a step back to really think their actions through. Something which will also come to building this team which is as they say anything but unified right now. On the surface they may look that way, but they really aren't. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 9, 2014

    Dr. Silk's plot may not be resonating with me all that much or wind up feeling quite as epic as it should, but despite that, this is still a very enjoyable issue and something any fan of the book will likely appreciate. Not only is it consistently pleasing on the eyes, but Kindt's able to shine a tight spotlight on Ninjak and Aric's morals. They're still a fresh group, so it's great to see them being handled as such. I may not be the biggest fan of the team's latest threat, but I sure am loving the reactions it generates from them.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 9, 2014

    I actually ended up liking this issue a lot due to the final act. At first it plays possum and just loads you up on back story for the villain. That's great and all, but it didn't feel like a Valiant book until that third act when it pulled the rug out from underneath you. If you were going flat on this series, give it another shot. Just don't miss this issue as it affects a lot of the Valiant U. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Apr 8, 2014

    Unity #6 is a keeper and the series as a whole has been outstanding. Valiant develops a deeply entwined universe and Unity is the story that brings all the major story lines together in one title. This is more than just a good team book, it's a universe's great story book. Kindt has created a rich, vibrant story that comic book fans would be crazy not to jump on! Read Full Review

    Unity #6 is not the strongest narrative ever spun by Kindt and company, but a solid adventure in the web of Dr. Silk’s vicious mind games. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Apr 9, 2014

    Kindt's shortcomings are minor compared to the overall scope of the comic, however, and throughout he does a nice job of recapping the story's past events with a casual, unnoticeable demeanor. "Unity" #6 makes a case for the title to be a legitimate team book for a long time, and in Kindt's hands it has the capability to remain just that. It also serves as a sampler of sorts for Valiant Entertainment's characters; if any potential readers had the urge to give Valiant a try, this would be a good title to start with. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Apr 11, 2014

    For perhaps aiming for a wow factor, writer Matt Kindt has his team dish out beatdowns and beheadings in response to petty threats and minor provocation. Yes, the book's action seems a bit senseless, but it does make for a suspenseful story, which has been the selling point of Unity. Read Full Review
