In time, even the dead may die…and, now, after multiple 2015 Harvey Award nominations, the most sought-after couple in comics returns with an all-new adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)!

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 are reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spellbook or even touching his wife.

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

"There'll be scary ghost-stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago." 0

Originally published at The Hub City ReviewThere’s just something about Christmastide and ghost stories. The lyrics to “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” promise as much, and great writers of Christmas Past and Present have always delivered, from Dickens with the quintessential A Christmas Carol to MacDonald with the lesser known but no less writtenThe Shadows, to Jen Van Meter in this week’s latest from Valiant, The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage #1.
