We’ve got the exclusive first look at the covers to Psi-Lords #5. The issue has three main covers by Julian Totino Tedesco, Al Barrionuevo, and Raúl Allén.
Written by Fred Van Lente with art by Renato Guedes, what is Psi-Lords #5 about? The book’s editor David Menchel gives us the scoop:
Issue #5 of PSI-LORDS begins the book’s next exciting chapter: Conquest. Whereas in the first arc, we introduced the quartet and began teasing some secrets, this is the arc where we start to answer those questions, and use those answers to manipulate our heroes. The characters start to discover more about themselves, who they were and what purpose they play now, what the origins of their powers are and why their memories were taken. We also get to explore the gyre, and watch as mounting tensions and shaky alliances begin to culminate in unexpected and violent ways. We aren’t calling this arc “Conquest” for no reason.
Valiant Entertainment is happy to announce that Assistant Editor David Menchel has been promoted to Associate Editor. In his new role, Menchel will work closely with writers, artists, and other comic creators to continue to develop the best stories for Valiant’s iconic characters and dedicated fans. Menchel also played a critical role in helping to develop Valiant’s recently announced Breakthrough lineup of titles.

THE MOMENT MORE THAN A YEAR IN THE MAKING! AT LAST – X-O MANOWAR RETURNS TO EARTH!
After a brutal year spent waging war on the far side of the galaxy, Aric of Dacia must now face the one thing he yearned to leave behind: planet Earth. But as the man called X-O Manowar prepares for a world-shaking homecoming, he must come to terms with a savage awakening inside himself…and the obligations that still await him on our world. Just as the forces of HARBINGER WARS 2 – Valiant’s seismic 2018 crossover event – begin to vie for Aric’s loyalties, a long-awaited reunion might just shatter everything we’ve come to believe about the fallen warrior-king in control of the universe’s most powerful weapon…
The comics odyssey of a lifetime comes full circle as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY) and acclaimed artist Ariel Olivetti (Incredible Hulk) begin the countdown to HARBINGER WARS 2 with an inescapable turning point for the Valiant Universe’s unrelenting man of war!

This means war!
The alien-armored warrior called X-O Manowar once commanded the most formidable army the alien world of Gorin had ever known. Now, his comrades have been forsaken, his crown has been commandeered, and his power has been rejected by the very subjects he once ruled. But he still has his sword…and a never-ending furnace of fury drawn from deep within…
The end of X-O Manowar’s year-long conquest at the farthest reaches of the Valiant Universe draws near – and a powerful new beginning awaits – as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY) and astonishing artist Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead) unleash the final reckoning of “VISIGOTH”!
