Through the unfathomable forces of nature, Archer and Gub Gub – the pint-sized and deranged clone of Armstrong – have swapped minds! When Gub Gub’s body is kidnapped by nefarious forces, Armstrong and his long-lost wife, Andromeda, must race to save their friend and undo the horrendous merger of minds before the damage becomes permanent!
“ANDROMEDA ESTRANGED” goes mental as rising star Rafer Roberts (Harbinger Renegade) and acclaimed artists Mike Norton (Revival) and Joe Eisma (Inhuman) drag Valiant’s leading adventure duo through Hell – and also Florida – for the very soul of Archer (and, sure, maybe Gub Gub too)!

Remember mullets and teased bangs? Stonewashed denim jackets and jeans? Well, not everything about the ‘80s was lame, because that’s when the Garbage Pail Kids ruled the world! Those irreverent, satirical stickers quickly became a pop-culture phenomenon, but they never had their own comic book… until now! In the spirit of the avant-garde cartoonists and humorists who fathered these miscreants, a new generation of alternative-comics creators has lent their unique talents to bring the Garbage Pail Kids into the wacky world of comics. Collects all five one-shots.

The Mighty Crusaders return in an all new lost tale, featuring a stellar cast of talent. With the New Crusaders facing an uncertain future and the truth about their parents slowly being revealed, one man searches for answers. But will the answers he finds be worth reliving the pain of his own past?
As the first arc of this series reaches its cataclysmic conclusion the question must be asked: does it live up to the previous four chapters, or does the final chapter of Fox Hunt crash and burn?
Not at all. Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel are on fine form here as they bring The Fox #5 to an absolutely stupendous conclusion that brings everything that has made the first four issues of the Fox Hunt story arc great and the fifth issue, entitle I, Superhero, continues along the same trajectory. It’s no secret I’m in love with series, and I wasn’t disappointed with the finale of the opening arc. Dark Circle Comics are producing some of the most interesting series lately, and The Fox is no exception to that. The almost innocent, fun exterior hides some interesting parallels to one of comics most famous vigilantes without ever really taking itself too seriously. That isn’t to say this is a comic to hand over to your five year old, but it does dodge a lot of the darkness so prevalent in comics these days without compromising the quality of the story.
If it sounds that The Fox #5 is a fun comic, well that would be entirely accurate. When it comes to enjoying the comics we read, none of the comics on my pull list are as entertaining as this series has been, and the fifth issue is no exception. Although with I, Superhero being the final chapter in the Fox Hunt arc, it may not be the best place to jump into the story; it’s a fantastic ending to the opening arc.
I’m looking forward to following The Fox‘s adventures in the coming months, and so should you.
