    If you missed the first issue then you're in luck because the second printing of that issue is out today as well. If you liked any of the other Valiant titles then you'll like this one as well. If you've never read a Valiant book then this is a great place to start. Read Full Review

    SUMMARYThe Death-Defying Doctor Mirage #2 is an overall enjoyable issue that puts the readers in the shoes of Mirage during her first trip to this spirit realm and shows how complex and dangerous it could be. The mystery behind Linton March and his goals deepened but the organization he's a part of became more intriguing as they all don't want to achieve the same thing. Mirage first meeting her husband was a fascinating story but with the flurry of activity became almost an afterthought. However, I'm still enjoying this series and I'm looking forward to the answers that will be revealed. Read Full Review

    The conflict Mirage tumbled thickens throughout the series as multiple A and B plots meet. Her immediate goal to severe March's supernatural connections and investigate her husband's disappearance becomescomplicated by a shady group of rich white men, of course. Thingsgets nutswith the arrivalofan army of orcs and the real Lost Boys, and it all comes together nicely. The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage #2 is a pleasant read, a fresh supernatural face and a fine effort by Valiant to diversify their line. More please. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 8, 2014

    I'll admit that on a certain level I enjoyed this issue, but I get that back of the mind feeling that this miniseries is going to work a lot better when read in full rather than installments. Shan's journey to find Hwen's spirit is potentially going to take her to some interesting places, which we see a bit of here in addition to what Ivros brings to the table, but it's also going to explore some of who she is and who she is with Hwen. That, at the end of the day, is what the series is likely going to be about. To bring a bit of updating, cleaning up and foundation setting for the Doctor Mirage aspect that could spin off into something else. The series really has some interesting ideas to it, but it's execution in monthly installments is making me feel a little more guarded against it. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 7, 2014

    The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage #2 may not have captivated as much as the first issue, being a little confusing at times, but it still proves intriguing enough. It also gives a deeper look into the character of Mirage, and due to this it comes recommended. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Oct 9, 2014

    The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage is not your average Valiant book, and while it seems to be a bit on the outside looking in at books like X-O Manowar and Bloodshot simply because it is so different, its still something that demands your attention. DDDM will undoubtedly tie into the rest of the Valiant Universe after the first arc, as was the trend with all the initial launches, which will certainly help with exposure and getting this character more time with readers who might have skipped over the launch. As it stands now, not enough people seem to be checking this book out and thats a damn shame because theres definitely something special happening in this corner of the Valiant Universe.

    Overall Dr Mirage #2 is another solid entry into this series, really building on what has been started in the previous issue an adding more intrigue and a few interesting twists and turns along the way. Allowing the reader to really understand the main characters mind set whilst pushing the plot along at a reasonable pace, it will be exciting to see where this goes in future issues.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 13, 2014

    "The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage" #2 is all right, but with such a strong legacy from the original series in the '90s, one wants this mini-series to be great. Hopefully as the series gets further in, everything will warm up enough to fully embrace what Van Meter and De La Torre are creating here. Read Full Review
