"Freak Magnet," Part 3: "Hell's Half Acre"! The Fox is stuck in a nightmarish, fantastical land rife with underground dungeons, medieval traps, and enslaved Red Circle heroes! When he finally reaches his ultimate destination, will he encounter heroes or villains-or both? Meanwhile, in "The Face of Hate," Part 2: "The Enemy of my Enemy," the Shield's battle against arch-rivals Hachiman and Master Race continues in the icy tundra! But what monster from the depths has these hated rivals all shaking in their boots? And what connection does it have to the FOX and his misadventures in the Diamond Realm? Featuring all-new variant cover art from acclaimed artists Mike Allred and Laura Allred.

    I touched on this slightly in the intro to this review, but the backup story is outstanding. It is really coming together. I'm just as excited for the continuation for these characters, as I am for The Fox, if not more so. The story seems familiar in a good way. It feels like I already know the characters so well, and I want to go along for the ride as long as they've got room in the car. I'm sure that it won't come as a surprise to anyone reading this, but this issue gets a perfect score from me, and I'm honored to have had a chance to review it for the site. What a great way to close out the day. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jan 9, 2014

    This is a great looking comic, as well. Haspiel's cartooning is bold and frantic, perfectly suited for the silliness that fills these pages. He manages to plug so much character into the Fox's simple design, often with just the subtlest tweak of the ears. It's the art that really sells this thing, no doubt. Haspiel packs each page with tons of stuff, never wasting a page or panel. As previously stated, The Fox feels thick, there's just a lot going on in here, a lot to dig into. As long as Haspiel and Waid are on this book, it's worth your time and money, especially if you're a fan of big, dumb fun. It's great stuff, really. Read Full Review

    The Fox is sly and addictive fun, straight no chaser. Read Full Review

    The Fox's artwork -- and outlook -- continues to impress, but the lack of a stronger theme or hook keeps this book from hitting its full potential. Read Full Review
