Title: Unity #25
Publisher: Valiant Entertainment
Cover Artist: Kano; Matt Kindt; Fred Hembeck and Andrew Dalhouse; Michael Kupperman
This was a great issue of Quantum and Woody. Except it’s the last issue of Unity. Why it was decided it would be better to frame the issue around Quantum and Woody pitching ideas for a Unity movie is a bit beyond us. It gives the chance for numerous creators to craft some very humorous stories about Unity, but other than a fantastic closing story involving Livewire from regular series writer Matt Kindt, it just didn’t feel like an issue of Valiant’s premier super hero team. Especially considering this is closing out the first volume, you would expect more stories to match the themes and tones of what the book has been since the beginning, instead of having an issue that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the series. It’s not a bad issue by any means; fans of Quantum and Woody’s style of humor should love this. If this is the last time for us to see the team together for an extended period, it should have focused on a real story involving the characters we’ve been following.
