Review by Scott Keys
I don’t know what to say about this book. I’m taken aback as each issue is released at how amazing it is, and the fact that it was even better than the previous issue!
Kindt has yet to disappoint me with his amazing writing. This issue, we get to see into Livewire’s past as she is melding with the X-O armor. We also get a little catch up of X-O through this sequence as well, and Livewire seems to have taken full control of the armor. Of course, being the Visigoth leader he is, Aric refuses to give up. As Aric and his people try to fend off Harada and his compatriots, the Russians launch a missile which Livewire must intercept or they would all be doomed! Harada and his crew come out victorious, with Aric and his people at the bottom of the ocean, the Russian warhead returned to it’s “rightful owner,” and Harada being in control of the armor…or IS he?
The amount of character development by Kindt this issue was great! We get to know Livewire better, and find out what motivates here and what makes her so loyal to Harada. We also get a bit of intrigue (which I won’t spoil for those of you that NEED to be reading this series), that suffice it to say, makes me even MORE excited for issue #4! I don’t think I really need to say much about Braithwaite and Reber on the art side. Just look at it. Go ahead. It’s gorgeous, right? Storytelling is done with both script and art, and these creators are at the top of their game!
Unity #3 is another gem from the publishing juggernaut Valiant Entertainment! Kindt just keeps upping the ante, and Braithwaite keeps calling! A truly brilliant series from some of the industry’s finest!
