The Fox pic 2The physical movement in the book is something you simply won’t see anywhere else. Haspiel has devised his own power chords in those chosen moments of motion stopped in time. When he renders them, he neatly removes all excess transitions and presents you with just enough information to put the visual narrative together and challenges you to keep up. The Fox’s “voice”, though, is also one of the strongest elements of the book, the way in which he speaks to the reader and establishes his slightly down trodden bad ass smart alec defiance in spare language, and that’s down to Mark Waid. No surprise given his masterful work on Daredevil, and the way that The Fox straddles two lives and finds the melancholy zone of loneliness between the two is no doubt drawn from handling Murdoch’s constant state of tension. Does Fox #1 live up to my expectations? Come on. It’s a sleek, stream-lined introduction to an old world rendered new for us, and it’s sexy and its got all the right swagger. This is comics done the right way, ways that don’t even occur to people to try. If you’re not reading The Fox, you may not realize that comics are stronger now than we have any good reason to deserve given how little creators are paid and how difficult it is to get distribution for original concepts. By the way, Archie Comics just announced that The Fox has sold out on the Diamond level, so get it while you can!"
