Hot off the sold-out success of RAI #1 and ARMOR HUNTERS #1, Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #1 (of 5) – the next must-read series from VALIANT FIRST by Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages, Captain Marvel) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Shadowman, Daredevil)! On September 3rd, death will be just the beginning when Valiant's spirited occult adventurer goes beyond and back for a breathtaking, heartbreaking journey into realms of the unknown!

Doctor Mirage talks to the dead…but the only spirit Shan Fong can’t find is that of her late husband, Hwen. Instead, America’s favorite semi-retired paranormal investigator is haunted and raw, using her gift to solve homicides and bring peace to the recently bereaved. But when a big-time occultist with a classified military past hires her for a special job, Shan discovers a lead that might close the greatest mystery she’s ever tackled – how to get Hwen back. Now, Doctor Mirage must enter the undiscovered country and cross all the realms of the underworld, if she has any hope of rescuing the man she loves…or be forever lost beyond the earthly plane.

The year's most astonishing adventure begins on September 3rd in THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #1 (of 5) – featuring a cover by visionary artist Travel Foreman (Animal Man)!

Plus: for Valiant's dedicated pullbox subscription customers, delve deep into the dark world of Dr. Mirage with the special expanded THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #1 PLUS EDITION – available only in comic shops and featuring more than 15 extra pages of all-new stories and artwork that won't be collected for the trade! Discover what awaits in the realms of Deadside and beyond with Jen Van Meter’s guide to the worlds beyond our reality; an all-new comic story starring a World War II-era occult secret agent at the heart of Mirage's quest; a handbook-style guide to the shadowy citizens, soul-eating beasts, and malevolent demons of the netherworld; and much more, only in THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #1 PLUS EDITION!

I've loved Roberto De La Torre since his Daredevil days. Looks good.

Really?! I think it looks terrible, can't draw a clean line so why not scribble?

This looks super cool. The title font is what really sold me though.

It is VERY cool title font. Almost like a bit of the 60s hippie in there. It actually reminds me of - God help me - Austin Powers.

Might pick this up since I loved Shadowman, which was Valiant's best book.
