Ain't It Cool News reviews THE FOX #2

"Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid bring their A-game once again to this second issue. The madcap blend of action, thrills, humor and (most of all) fun that sold me on THE FOX in its premiere issue packs this comic from cover to cover, as the Fox battles giant monsters, raging rivers and vivid hallucinations on a strange alien planet. The Jack Kirby influence that was heralded in issue #1’s cliffhanger reveal of the sci-fi-skewed Queen of Diamonds positively crackles here—as a matter of fact, the only thing that this issue could use are some authentic Kirby Krackles™ and I would think I was reading a classic issue of FANTASTIC FOUR.

Haspiel’s clean-cut style and dynamic compositions infuse the story with a combination of retro charm and modern freshness, while Waid taps into his inner Beatle to pepper the comic with an inner monologue for the Fox that perfectly complements his situation of being spirited away to the pseudo-psychedelic diamond world."
