Overmental reviews The Fox #1

"If you like down to Earth superheroes with actual human problems (who make witty jokes about them), definitely check out The Fox #1. Dean Haspiel’s art is masterful, and he uses the photography background of The Fox and his son to craft “snapshot” panels that give you a closer look at how the characters are feeling during pivotal moments.

Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid also really dig into the idea of nostalgia through The Fox, and how the old days were pretty good, but that our memories are more important that preserving every nook and cranny of childhood. The corporation as villain has been used a lot in recent comics, but they wisely focus on the characters’ feeling and interpersonal relationships while throwing in an ample dose of sarcasm, sight gags, and an actual final page cliffhanger to keep the story entertaining."
