Who are the cosmic beings known only as the Psi-Lords? And how will they change the course of the Universe in this brand-new ongoing series?
Four astronauts awake in an otherworldly prison with no memory of how they got there! What is their connection to the Psi-Lords? And how will they escape?
Fred Van Lente is crafting a lively sci-fi mystery, and Renato Guedes' art is (literally) out of this world.

    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden May 7, 2019

    Van Lente gambles on stepping away from the established core of what keeps Valiant fans reading and knocks it out of the park. In one issue you're sparked with more interest in what this brings next and what other new projects Valiant will reveal in the months to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Apr 16, 2019

    First issues can be a difficult prospect; the creators have to produce a book that captures the imagination, and the disposable income of readers who are already feeling the burden of following whatever major event is happening this week.

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall May 2, 2019

    Reworking existing characters into their new universe looks good on Valiant. Their resurrections speak of top talent entrusted and unleashed, allowed to change or preserve the preceding concepts as fits their own stories. Other companies, take note. This is how to maintain a property stable well, not layering redundant variations on skeletal remains never properly fleshed to start with. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Apr 16, 2019

    Psi-Lords #1 doesn't require any real knowledge of the original series, but the plot doesn't really stand out either. It's a comic that is visually fantastic, but with a plot that barely rises above average. Whether it's worth reading is up to you, but for me it wasn't worth the wait. Read Full Review
