Unity Chapter One: Ends of the Earth

No Caption Provided


The Year was 1992 and Valiant was fast becoming a hot name in Comics. All of the Valiant Stories up until this point had been slowly building to this epic tale,  Valiant's first and Greatest Crossover .. " Unity". It all begins here in the 16 page opening chapter which was free to fans who purchased the monthly titles.

The Story:
   As the story opens we find Erica Pierce the sole survivor of the Reality Dr. Solar Destroyed in his Origin Story Floating through Space. Erica unconsciously  uses her powers to bring herself to the new reality Dr.Solar has created. This is a flashback and she is still unaware of  her new Abilities so she makes a rough landing in Chicago.

   Present at the event that gave Phil Seleski his powers, Erica has the same powers as Dr.Solar does. She soon realizes it, and this instantly puts all reality in jeopardy. Geoff a Geomancer who can commune with any object including the Earth itself soon becomes aware of her presence and alerts Dr.solar..

  The Good: 
            Sweet Art, fantastic writing, and air-tight continuity. Jim Shooter's time as Head of Valiant reads like a how to guide for comics publishers. I still buy these issues anytime I see one. And the cover price: Free? Talk about Customer appreciation!!
 The Bad
Nothing. This is my favorite single comics storyline.
 The Verdict: 5/5
  Any real fan of comics needs to read this. Shooter created a realistic universe with characters who lived and breathed, and where events in one series really did effect events in others. I give this issue my highest possible recommendation! Don't miss it!

    Unity begins and Aric, of course, is involved… Aric arrives outside a phone booth near Holden, Utah (along with the kids of Harbinger) thanks to Geoff McHenry - this generation’s Geomancer. He witnesses another man appear within the telephone booth and, along with even more people, winds up in a very strange place about to be attacked by an army of creatures and machines. Notes of Interest: 1) Aric appears for less than ten panels in the second half of the issue. We have no idea how he meets Ge...
