Broken Frontier raves about THE FOX #1

"Haspiel’s clean visual storytelling and kinetic pages keep the pace moving at a good clip without scrimping on the emotional or physical details. Waid’s dialogue is as tight as ever, though he does loosen up a bit, keeping things light yet ever-so-sharp. Overall, this is a book with buoyancy – stripped-down, extremely well-crafted but light on its feet and never, ever taking itself too seriously. Featuring a delightful bonus back-up short by Haspiel, this is a debut that keeps on giving, adding value for the price of admission, a trend that will continue next issue with a Shield back-up story, by J.M. DeMatteis, Mike Cavallaro, and Terry Austin.

Now, take a deep breath. Feel that? Feel refreshed? Of course you do, because that’s what comics feel like when their fun. Crazy isn’t it? Yeah, crazy like a Fox."
