THE FOX: Family Values one-shot

THE FOX: Family Values one-shot is out today in comic book shops everywhere. You can also get it directly from publisher Archie Comics. It was fun to pick up where I left off and revisit my favorite freak magnets. I hope I get invited back to the freak show.

Pop Culture Squad reviews THE FOX: FAMILY VALUES

Pop Culture Squad wrote a nice review for THE FOX: FAMILY VALUES one-shot published by Archie Comics. Thanks Bob Harrison!

"Haspiel takes some metaphysical swings in the storytelling and delivers a dynamic story filled with heart that leaves us wanting more from this incarnation of the character."

Comic Book Club: Dean Haspiel and Vito Delsante talk THE FOX + more!

Vito Delsante and I talked to the Comic Book Club fellas (Pete, Alex & Justin) about The Fox: Family Values, Stray, The Red Hook, Billy Dogma, and how to save the industry with our comics!

Special guests Neil Kleid and Andrea Mutti talk about their new series, The Panic, too.



Neal Adams, 1941-2022

(Danny Fingeroth, Howard Chaykin, Dean Haspiel, Judah Nero and Neal Adams at a Wizard World)

Neal Adams innovated comics for the better, fought for creators rights, and was a mentor to some of my favorite cartoonists. Neal was very sweet to me. Told me to make a giant banner at comix shows so everyone would come see me and know who I was. See me? Trust me, they were always there to see him. A true legend. Rest In Peace, kind sir.

The Comics Beat: PREVIEW: Queer love & superheroes in THE FOX: FAMILY VALUES

Writer and artist Haspiel had this to say about the one-shot:

“If someone pointed a weapon in your face, what would you do? If supervillains tried to mess with your romance, what would you do? If your greatest opponent was yourself, what would you do? Read the soon-to-be classic THE FOX: FAMILY VALUES one-shot and find out!”
