Review by Jeremias de Leon


The story sees X-O Manowar, Ninjak, and the Eternal Warrior chasing Dr. Silk and his brainwashed goons while Livewire is talking with the man himself.
Through the issue Silk’s motivations are expanded upon and we see that not only are his goals not the standard fair but his motivations as well. He doesn’t want to cause strife but the plan he reveals is most definitely a nefarious one. The intention for this arc was to show that Silk was a legitimate threat to these four and he definitely has done that. Silk is written very well.
There was also some more nice references to other things in the Valiant universe shown during Silk’s explanations on why he’s doing what he’s doing that might be appreciated. So that’s a bonus if you’re a longtime Valiant fan.

A lot of what I mentioned in my review of the previous issue applies here. The level of detail is really high and everything still manages to look dynamic. Which is a bit of a downfall of overly detailed art. Sometimes things get so detailed it actually starts to look less believable but CAFU does a fantastic job of having things look good and detailed. 
This issue has some great plot building and character development for the villain. The team still seems to not be a true cohesive unit yet but we do see growth for them as well. All in all I can’t really say to skip this one, it’s a worthy read and for that I give Unity # 6 a solid 9 out of 10.
