On December 23rd, even the dead may die…

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of an astonishing new limited series adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and awe-inspiring artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)! In the wake of multiple 2015 Harvey Award nominations, the acclaimed creators behind Valiant’s breathtaking team of paranormal investigators reunite to open the next forbidden casebook for the death-defying Doctors Mirage…and release a force of utter annihilation on the living and the dead alike!

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 have been reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spell-book or even touching his wife.

Their options exhausted, the 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… a torturous death that obliterates not just everything a person ever had in this world, but everything their ghost will be in the next!

On December 23rd, the most sought-after couple in comics returns with a heart-stopping new chapter, only in THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Roberto de la Torre (Age of Apocalypse), Khari Evans (HARBINGER), Katie Skelly (Nurse Nurse) and Colleen Coover (Bandette)!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
