David Menchel, Associate Editor at Valiant Comics, stops by to wet our appetites for the upcoming Psi-Lords series. Don't worry, Gregg Katzman is here too to make sure we don't spoiler anything for you!

We have read Psi-Lords #1, and we like it! After our non-spoiler conversation with David, we share a bit of our non-spoiler thoughts on the book.

After that, we talk about the original Psi-Lords series from the 90s, and give you a bit of a primer about who and what they were, and what the series is all about.

This is Only The Valiant, so of course we will weave and swerve our way through various side tracks and off topic, intriguing ideas.
