Unity Redux free digital download

Post by Heath »

Have you ever wondered what Unity would be like read in chronological order, with all redundancy edited out? I did. So I put this together.

The editing works in some places, doesn't in others.

It's a big download. You can download each chapter individually, or the single archive with all 7 cbz files (333MB). You'll need a reader that can handle the cbz format.

Click here to download all chapters in one zip file.

Or download individual chapters:

Chapter 0

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 6



OK'd by Dino if it remained digital only.

If you like it, please make a donation to CFF.

Elveen, can you please post the donation info? Thanks.

I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Can Dino add it to Comixology ?? That would be Awesome! Charge $5 for it or something? Maybe have their 'people' 'clean' it up a bit?

Downloading now. Very impressive effort, must have taken a while. Do I even remember correctly that you had to restart after a hard disk crash? Looking forward to the donation info.

Updated the first post. The original location where the file was hosted may be going away soon, so I moved it to my Dropbox. I also took the opportunity to split it until multiple files so the individual chapters can be downloaded separately. The comprehensive .zip file containing all the chapters is still available.

Awesome resource. Thanks for keeping it active for new readers. The redux really is easier to read than the original with all of its repetitive scenes.

Is that because you only read via Comixology? Otherwise, releasing on Comixology provides nothing of substance to these files. You can covert them to be read on literally anything - including an old school Kindle (although it would be in greyscale).

This looks really cool :)

I've never read the original Unity, so it's exciting to me to be able to read it in its entirety for the first time, with all the reprinted material edited out.

Really looking forward to giving this a look! Will post later once I've read it :D

I like how it says "Free" with the chapter number in the price boxes on the covers :D

The first two covers were created from ads for Unity. The others are all taken from interior art - full page spreads or panels enlarged to cover size. I now see a similar theme across the covers for chapters 3 through 6 and would change a couple of them now. That said, the cover for chapter 5 is my favorite of the whole group. And the cover for chapter 6 is my least favorite. I think I was getting tired of working on it by that point.
I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

I'm just glad it was pretty good, long and drawn out. (that's what she said.)
