Bleeding Cool reviews The Fox #2

Another great review from Hannah Means-Shannon at Bleeding Cool!

"...there is never a moment in any of their Fox stories so far, when they are “laughing at” superhero tradition. They aren’t going for a cheap laugh, but a belly laugh, maybe one disrupted by the bruises or cracked ribs of what being a superhero would be like within a fictional reality. I feel like Waid and Haspiel almost argue for the fictional rights to dignity for their characters, and the deeper they go into hero humiliation and psychological realism, the more they make sure hero comics keep their footing as a respectable thing in a changing world."

"It’s a beautiful, lively, humor-packed book that doesn’t try to make itself look clever and powerful as a be all and end all. There are plenty of things to laugh at in hero comics, and Fox Hunt is one of the best methods around to do so while celebrating the medium."
