"Fox Hunt," Part 2: "The Other Shoe". The fox-hunt has begun, and Impact City's most dangerous criminals are out for blood. When Paul Patton Jr. decides to take his son, Shinji, on a trip to the Museum of the Moving Image, he's hoping to make an effort to finally be a present father and not the superhero freak magnet known as The Fox. But when a violent bank robbery derails their plans, and Paul is unwilling to don his superhero suit and save the day, a new kind of superhero will need to step in and save the day. So why is this new hero The Fox's worst nightmare?

    The second installment of the series has turned me from dropping the book to being excited about what comes next. The first issue just felt like a mess of a narrative that pushed new readers away rather than drew them in. Here, it left me wanting to know a lot more and excited to find out about it. Paul's position is understandable while Shinji's is infectious, and it's easy to be drawn to Shinji and the youthful exuberance of it all in comparison to Paul's weariness with this life and world. Both have their advantages, but Paul's atmosphere doesn't make you want to read about him and his adventures. Hopefully the combination of the two together will bring about a better dynamic because the Ghost Fox already has me hooked and wanting to see more of his adventures. The book definitely is firing on all cylinders here, from dialogue to jokes and to the artwork and designs, making it a fun, exciting and thrilling read. Read Full Review

    Comedy in comics is something we should have more of. I like my drama and mind bending sci fi, but some straight comedy/action comics would be nice once in a while and The Fox fits that need. If you havent been reading this, you should jump on the band wagon. The dynamic between the Fox and his son is a delight to read. Its what makes this book all the more interesting. The rebellious teen who thinks he knows it all working alongside his out-of-touch father is a cool dynamic and Im eager to see where they will take this already bumpy relationship. Again, this is a fun comic. It may not be the kind you like, but I would recommend giving it a try. You wont know if you like green eggs and ham if until you try it first. Give this book a try. You may not regret it. I know I havent. Read Full Review

    "The Fox" #2 is a smart, fun comic worth checking out. Haspiel, Waid, Passalaqua and Workman give readers exactly the type of comic the readership clamors for: light continuity, strong characters, action, intrigue and plenty of fun. Readers looking for a new start with a fun new character and offbeat adventures need look no further than "The Fox" #2. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 8, 2015

    I really don't know at this point if I'll be back for more of The Fox. It's not a bad comic, but it's not good either. It's in that average zone and I think it would have really helped if they had treated this like a fresh series that happened to have a past rather than feeling like issue seven or eight in an ongoing which is exactly what it comes across as.
