Rating: 4.5/5 – Great use of the digital format for this Unity prequel.
Valiant did a great job on this $1.99 digital prequel to the fabulous Unity #1. We get a framing sequence done in conventional art but the bulk of this issue is set in a virtual 8-bit world as Livewire, Ninjak, and Gilad the Eternal Warrior are put through their paces training for a confrontation with X-O Manowar in the style of an old school video game:
Comixology’s Guided View Native format builds the story action after action, panel by panel on each mouse click. It really makes use of the digital format, it’s not just a digitized print comic, the experience feels unique to digital. If you’re a fan of Valiant and/or old school video games you definitely need to check this one out!
