Valiant Comics announced the new ongoing series “Unity” earlier today. The new super group will be written by “New York Times” bestselling writer Matt Kindt with art from Doug Braithwaite and colors from Brian Reber. The company also announced that both Braithwaite and Reber have signed creator exclusive contracts with the publisher.
Launching in November, “Unity” #1 finds the Harbinger Foundation’s Toyo Harada assembling a group of powerful individuals united for a common goal: Kill X-O Manowar! Regular readers will recall the Road to Unity began in last month’s “X-O Manowar” #15, when Aric of Dacia used the X-O armor to seize control of a portion of Eastern Europe to form a nation for his recently rescued Visigoth people. (See the “X-O” #15 review here for more details.) Well, Harada views this hostile takeover as a threat to modern civilization and assembles Ninjak, The Eternal Warrior and Livewire to put an end to Aric’s reign before things escalate into a worldwide conflagration.
And just who are the members of Unity?
