First announced this past June at an event held at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, Valiant Entertainment will return to the world of Dr. Mirage this December with four-issue series "The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage: Second Lives," from the creative team of writer Jen Van Meter and artist Roberto de la Torre -- the same team behind the 2014 "Death-Defying Dr. Mirage" miniseries.
CBR has the exclusive first look at five new covers from issue #1 of the series, by de la Torre, Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic, Khari Evans, Katie Skelly and Colleen Coover, along with the previously revealed cover by Kevin Wada. The EC Comics-style Coover cover is the first in a new "Valiant Linewide Variant" initiative -- for every 100 copies of December-shipping Valiant titled ordered during Diamond's Initial Order period, retailers may order a copy of Coover's "The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage: Second Lives" #1 cover.
Additionally, CBR has a six-page preview of "The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage: Second Lives" #1, with three previously unreleased pages.
"I'm thrilled that the response to the first series was such that Valiant wanted me to do more, and this seemed the most natural of the ideas to pursue next," Van Meter said in June. "This is a comic book about a kind of funny, but bad-tempered gal and her ghost husband fighting ghost crime and hanging with their witch friends and being awesome, but I'd love it if the the readers and we can get to the end and have shared a story that maybe says a couple thoughtful things about the hard work that goes into rebuilding a relationship after time apart and after, in some sense, serious injury."
"The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage: Second Lives" #1 is scheduled to debut in December from Valiant.
