UNITY is just beginning but what a beginning it was. The first issue sold out but you might still be able to find a copy at your local comic shop (plus there's that Golden Ticket contest they have going). Looking ahead, it was revealed over at USA Today that UNITY #5 will introduce the next big villain in a three-part story arc called, "Trapped by Webnet."
Longtime Valiant readers might immediately figure out that Webnet means we'll be seeing Dr. Silk. Silk will be getting the modern reboot treatment and is bound to mean bad news for everyone. Writer Matt Kindt described what he has planned for Silk.
"I've put a lot of thought into [Dr. Silk] and one of the things that makes him interesting is that he's crazy SMART...not just crazy. So I'm really focusing on that, and hand in hand with that is his age," Kindt told USA Today. "He's kind of a withered old guy which implies a lot of history. So part of his intrigue is going to be what he's done in the past and how it's going to effect our present."
Check out our exclusive cover reveal for Matt Kindt's UNITY #5 variant.

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. First came UNITY… Now meet WEBNET! Coming off of the earth-shattering repercussions of their first mission, Ninjak is leading the newly formed Unity team right back into the trenches to face the Valiant Universe's next colossal threat – the enigmatic Dr. Silk and the radical terror cell known as WEBNET! With the fate of untold millions on the line, can this team of cutthroat heroes uncover Silk's endgame – and his connection to Ninjak's shadowy past – before a global pandemic wipes humanity off the map?
