The Death-defying Dr. Mirage #1 Sells Out

Valiant is proud to announce that THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the critically acclaimed new limited series by Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages, Captain Marvel) and acclaimed artist Roberto De La Torre (Daredevil, Age of Apocalypse) – has sold out at the distributor level.

MIRAGE #1 SECOND PRINTING on October 29th – just in time for Halloween!

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.
