1:10am: Wednesday Night Mass reviews THE FOX #1
"THE FOX #1 — I had to drive to three different stores before finally finding a shelf copy of this when my trusty LCS failed to pull it for me but it was worth the hustle! Emmy-Award-Winning-Cartoonist-&-Animator Dean Haspiel drops some Kirby/Toth justice on the page and then enlists Eisner-&-Harvey-Award-Winning-Writer Mark Waid to dialogue the business, resulting in a comic that feels as fresh and timeless now as it might have in the heyday of the Silver Age. I could stand for it to be a little bit more insane but I suspect they’re going to work up to it. Haspiel does cut loose a bit more in the back-up with fight scenes that are more evocative of Kirby’s work exploding off of the page. Maybe that’s because dude is fighting a building? The only beat about the entire thing that rang false for me was the allusion to the neck-breaking in MAN OF STEEL. I know Waid hated it, and so did I, but we ought not to dignify such travesties with a response. I certainly don’t want any allusion to that movie made in the middle of all this buzzing goodness, right here."

11:08am: Every Day Is Like Wednesday reviews THE FOX #2
"It's a fun, funny comic book, as was the first issue, and it's rather delightful how different it is in setting and nature than that first issue..."

11:16am: Comic Bastards reviews THE FOX #2
"Dean Haspiel’s art is just as good as it was last month, but this issue has some pretty trippy looking stuff in it. It doesn’t really take place in a conventional setting, which makes it really cool to look at. Allen Passalaqua’s colors really popped in this issue. Combined, these two guys really brought something special."
