Valiant’s Doctor Mirage Comes to Life in Second Lives, A Sound of Thunder Heavy Metal Concept Album Now on Kickstarter

Washington, DC area metal band A Sound of Thunder and comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment are teaming up for “Second Lives” – an all-new EP inspired by the paranormal investigator known as Doctor Mirage!

The “Second Lives” 5-song EP is being offered exclusively via Kickstarter as a companion to A Sound of Thunder’s new album “It Was Metal.” The EP features original cover art by The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage series artist Roberto de la Torre. Fans have until November 13th to pre-order the CD, which will be a limited numbered and autographed edition.

Doctor Mirage talks to the dead, but the only spirit Shan Fong-Mirage couldn’t find was that of her late husband, Hwen. After a perilous trip through the underworld, the two have been reunited, but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead…incapable of opening a spell book or even touching his wife. Now, Valiant’s investigators of the occult and arcane use their gifts to solve homicides, bring peace to the recently bereaved, and look for answers to the mystery that haunts them most: how to restore Hwen’s solid form…
