THE DEATH-DEFYING DOCTOR MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) | BLOODSHOT REBORN #9 | RAI #12

At the end of their debut series, Shan Fong-Mirage liberated her husband Hwen’s spirit from the realm on the dead… Now, they’re your ordinary average pair of romantically entangled paranormal investigators once again – except, y’know, he’s a ghost! Reunited, yet still separated by a seemingly unconquerable gulf, the Doctors Mirage have set out to decipher an ancient text that holds the secret of restoring the dead to their physical form. But, unbeknownst to them, hiding amongst its pages is an unnatural evil that yearns to kill humans and ghosts alike…and if Hwen’s spirit dies a second time, there will be nothing left to resurrect the next time around!

Also arriving next Wednesday, Jeff Lemire and Butch Guice deliver some brutal truths about Bloodshot’s bloodied past for the much-anticipated final chapter of “THE HUNT” in BLOODSHOT REBORN #9; and thenMatt Kindt and Clayton Crain leave RAI #12 on the edge of a massive precipice leading into next summer’s 4001 A.D. crossover event! These are three issues you won’t want to miss!

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!

The alien agents of the Vine race, who were entrenched throughout the global power structure, have seen their opportunity to strike…and Harada now has his opportunity to break their tenuous pact of peace and take them down.

But with a specialized Vine killer among his own team – the ruthless and lethal Lord Vine-99 – will Harada be able to hold tight the grip on his monster’s leash… or will LV-99 turn on his master at last?
