THE DEATH-DEFYING DOCTOR MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4)
Shan and Hwen Mirage are superheroes’ most heartbreaking couple, but their undying love for one another has stretched the boundaries of the physical and spiritual worlds. Shan is doing her best at being Doctor Mirage, all while her husband and fellow spirits do the best to assist from the spirit world. Only now Shan and Hwen have an opportunity to use a scroll they once used, to bring Hwen back. Will the scroll be able to help them or will they be out of time to use it and look for other methods to bring Shan’s husband back. Check out Valiant’s THE DEATH-DEFYING DOCTOR MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) to find out!
In time, even the dead may die…and, now, after multiple 2015 Harvey Award nominations, the most sought-after couple in comics returns with an all-new adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)!
Occult investigators Shan and Hwen Mirage lived their lives in the thrall of an epic love that few will ever have…until Hwen died tragically before his time. Now, after a perilous trip through the underworld, Shan and Hwen are reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spellbook or even touching his wife.
Their options exhausted, the death-defying Doctors Mirage are about to enact a dangerous spell to restore Hwen’s solid form…and grant his ghost a second life. But, in the wrong hands, their ancient rite will become a tool of terror – and unleash a force of pure, homicidal evil that lusts for the murder of the living and the dead alike… a torturous death that obliterates not just everything a person ever had in this world, but everything their ghost will be in the next!
