    What more can I say about this series? Refreshing, funny, exciting, accessible, and exuberant; the Fox is a book you should be reading right now if you like good old fashioned comics. The dialogue is sharp, the sequentials flow like fine wine. The story itself is building up to what will be one intense showdown between the Fox, his son, and his wife and Mister Smile, a showdown I look forward to. As Ive said in the past, sometimes simple storytelling is enough for any fan of fiction. This particular series may not have all of the things Marvel, DC, or even Image may have, but thats okay because freshly unique is what makes The Fox so charming in the first place. Read Full Review

    The Fox works really well once again for me here with what it wants to do, in showing that Paul's not keen on this all but can't help but to get sucked into things – and enjoy it even as he seems to deny it, and that Shinji is just feeling utterly alive in a way he never has before and will refuse to let go. The two fight arcs are very different but we get a good sense of both father and son throughout it as well as some good fun with the villains and their particular styles and ways. I'm also really keen to see Mae take a proper position in things and provide a little more to the book than the full on man-thing that we've had so far, because it's definitely a bit thick in it at the moment. She has the potential to bring some great material in dealing with both husband and son in this context, as well as coming to life herself after being mostly off page for the first three issues. Her appearance is what I think the book really needed to start feeling "right." Read Full Review
