The fantastically-foxy finale is here in "Freak Magnet" part 5: "Future's End"! Emmy Award winning writer/artist Dean Haspiel is joined by acclaimed writer J.M. DeMatteis to conclude the "Freak Magnet" saga of the pulp-style hero The Fox! Our hero has won the day and defeated his evil adversaries, so why does he now find himself trapped 70 years in the past, side-by-side with the legendary hero of WW2 known as The Shield! And what does the Shield's arctic battle-royale have to do with the diamond realm?! And will someone please tell The Fox, aka Paul Patton Jr., why he can't just have the simple, freak-free life he wants? Don't miss the finale to end-em-all, and don't miss out on collecting all five "Fox Five" Variant Covers to this issue!

    Overall, I'm glad that I've had the opportunity to review The Fox for the past five months. It has definitely been a fun and trippy ride. I would say that I hope that the series continues to deliver, but I know that it isn't necessary to say that. I trust these guys. Read Full Review

    The Fox #5 should be read by you. And your friends. And children. Its accessible to a wide readership, teaches a good lesson and is a fantastic story! The only gripe I have is that it would have been nice to see a lady hero join in the antics. Read Full Review
