Shan and Hwen Mirage lived their lives thrall to an epic love that few will ever have…and died tragically before their time. Pulled back alone from beyond the brink of death, Shan thought she had lost her beloved husband and soulmate forever. But, gifted with the power to speak with the dead and armed with years of experience in the otherworldly, she braved the depths of the underworld and returned her husband's lost spirit to the land of the living. Now reunited, Shan and Hwen once again have a bright future ahead of them…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead. Though his company is a comfort to Shan, he still cannot open a spell-book, lift an occult artifact, wield an instrument of power…or so much as touch his wife.
Now Shan and Hwen Mirage must stop the vile being they've unwittingly released…but even they can't do it alone. And, soon, they'll be forced to turn for help to the last devil they ever want to deal with…
"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… 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," said writer Jen Van Meter. "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."
