In case you missed picking up the individual comic books from the 5-issue mini-series, THE FOX in "Freak Magnet" by me, Mark Waid, J.M.DeMatteis, Mike Cavallaro, Terry Austin, Allen Passalaqua + more, including a great introduction by Michael Allred, got collected into one sexy graphic novel!

Book description:
It's the fantastic debut of the high-flying Fox! Emmy Award winning writer/artist Dean Haspiel (Billy Dogma, HBO's Bored To Death) and Eisner Award-winning writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, Thrillbent) bring the legendary, pulp-style hero The Fox to life in Freak Magnet! When photojournalist Paul Patton, Jr. donned a superhero costume, he thought it would be a quick way to make some news—now the strange and unusual just can't help but be drawn to the freak-magnetism of the fabulous fighting Fox! Then, acclaimed writer J.M. DeMatteis (Abadazad, Justice League 3000) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Mike Cavallaro (Parade, Savior 28) take us back in time for an all-new story featuring the world's first patriotic superhero and leader of the New Crusaders, The Shield! What connection does the Shield's top-secret mission in the Arctic have to do with the Fox's diamond-studded adventure? And what ultra-powerful villains have arrived to wreak havoc?? Read on, dear reader—The Fox and the Shield have their work cut out for them!

This is what The Nerdist has to say:
"Equal parts Peter Parker and Lamont Cranston, The Fox, a.k.a. Paul Patten Jr., is a super-powered vigilante who is reluctantly thrust into the milieu of crime fighting by circumstance rather than by choice. Appropriately, the first collection of The Fox has been dubbed The Fox: Freak Magnet, a reference to Patten’s unique ability to attract the craziest, costumed kooks around, all of whom seem hellbent on killing him."
