One of the biggest advantages of my weekend comic store job is exposure to comics that most fans have only vaguely heard of, but are brilliant nonetheless. When I was growing up, Archie Comics were mostly known for their digest-sized collections, available at grocery counters everywhere. These days, Archie is in a period of expansion, changing their characters, trying different genres and even reviving their once-proud super-hero line. Of course, if you know your obscure comics history, you might recall that this isn’t the first time Archie has diversified their offerings for a new comic audience. Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
With issue #1 of the revival of Archie’s Golden Age hero, The Fox, Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel managed the complex task of impressing both Stephen and myself, reminding me of the good old Silver Age days where a superhero could be about a little bit of wacky fun, without the dark and the gritty and the glayven. Will The Fox’s sophomore outing maintain the same standard of excellence? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
