Relationships are hard enough as it is without complicating matters with life and death.  Somehow, Shan and Hwen Mirage are making it work.  After a harrowing journey through the underworld, the two are reunited...sort of.  Shan is alive.  Hwen is not.  While they're together, they can't even touch one another.  With all other options exhausted, the Doctors Mirage prepare to enact a dangerous spell to restore Hwen to solid form, giving his ghost a second life.  In the wrong hands, this ancient rite could become a tool of terror, unleashing a force of pure, homicidal evil, looking to murder the living and the dead.  No pressure or anything.

The previous Death-Defying Dr. Mirage was a solid read that managed to deliver on both the horror of demons and spirits as well as the strong love felt between the two main characters.  This follow-up mini-series, Second Lives, slated to begin in December from Valiant Entertainment reunites the creative team of writer Jen Van Meter and artist Roberto de la Torre.  It's no wonder that the publisher would want to keep this going as the book took home a ton of nominations at this year's Harvey Awards including Best Writer, Best Artist, and Most Promising New Talent.  

The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage: Second Lives will feature a number of variant covers from the likes of Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic, Kevin Wada, Roberto de la Torre, Khari Evans, and Katie Skelly.  It will also debut with an exclusive Valiant Linewide Variant by Colleen Coover.  The book will contain 32 pages and retail for $3.99.
