First Look: THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #2 – The Astonishing New Adventure Continues in October!

DRMIRAGE_002_COVER_FOREMANValiant is proud to present an advance preview of THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #2 – arriving in stores on October 8th! After RAI… After ARMOR HUNTERS… The VALIANT FIRST initiative begins a breathtaking new journey into the realms of the unknown with an all-new mini-series debut from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages, Captain Marvel) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil, Age of Apocalypse)!

Leaving her mortal body in deadly danger, the spirit of Dr. Mirage is about to enter the afterlife’s web of worlds, and begin the fight to win back the husband she thought she’d lost forever. But enemies lie in wait everywhere, and while demons and beasts besiege Mirage in the spirit world, an unexpected new eruption of evil will threaten her life on Earth…

“I think this is a really fun and interesting book because I think of it as mostly a quest narrative with a grown woman at its center,” writer Jen Van Meter told ComicsAlliance. “I don’t see a ton of those. I did want the first issue to feel magical. The trick was to give her this real technician’s personality. In the face of that, what would look awe-inspiring or stunning or shocking to her?”

Death is just the beginning…and, on October 8th, Dr. Mirage’s obsessive, astonishing quest into the lands of the dead to rescue her lost love continues in THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #2 – featuring a cover by fan-favorite artist Travel Foreman (Animal Man)!
