Comicosity Interview: Dean Haspiel Crazy Likes THE FOX
"Frankly, I was getting sick and tired of all the murder and mayhem that has become popular in our mainstream superhero comics. Who knew the apocalypse could become so boring? And the superhero deaths? So many superhero deaths. So many superhero resurrections. Rinse and repeat. Horror is my favorite genre but I don’t want superheroes to be subsumed by horror. Didn’t the Joker once ask, “Why so serious?” I wanted to read and see the kind of comic books I loved growing up so that’s what I wrote and drew in The Fox: Freak Magnet story. I wanted to celebrate the kind of superhero comic book I love."
