First off, I recognise that I’m probably not the demographic this book is aimed so the tone of the book is always going to feel lightweight and insubstantial to me. But, as with most people on this board I want to like all of the books and support the company.

I thought this was the best issue of a weak mini series. Unfortunately the goofy Robot villain was something I couldn’t get past so every time it appears I get taken out of the story.

I did like the Chris Chriswell dialogue (another ridiculous villain though) which was the best part of the book and I do think Jody Houser writes nice character interaction with sharp dialogue, it’s just a shame it’s within a framework of a story which is a little mediocre.

Surprised to see Valiant use Cary Nord’s talents on one of the lower tier books, that said there wasn’t much in the way of backgrounds in many panels, a rush job maybe? :?

I like Faith as a character I just not sure she’s solo book material.

3/5 for this issue but 2/5 for the 4 issue mini

It's a Do-Bot, but I don't know if I'm supposed to be seeing that as "Do (sounds like doo) Bot" or "Do (sounds like go) Bot".
It would make more sense to be a "Do (sounds like doo) Bot", since it was made to do things, but we have pop culture things called "Go-Bots" and "Do-Nuts" (doughnuts).

So, everytime I see its name, I think "doo bot" and "dough bot" without really knowing for sure which one it is supposed to be... just that it looks like those oversized wall plugs for iPhones.

:funnypost: yep, that's what the newest villain in the Valiant U looks like and 4 issues were dedicated to it! With so few books being released can we really experiment with goofy stuff like this? :?
