After a successful hunt with his mate, a male fox is captured by the “two leggers” and thrust into captivity. There, he faces dangers more insidious than the simple eat-or-be-eaten laws of the forest: complacency, fear of the unknown, pack mentality, and loss of identity.

Fox’s struggle to remain unbroken and return to his home and his love makes this standalone graphic novel an all-ages fable in the tradition of Kipling’s
The Jungle Book. Gorgeously rendered in a classic pen and ink style, the drawing is reminiscent of the Golden Age of children’s book illustration, and its delicacy is in contrast to the characters’ (a friendly blue jay, a philosophical chimp, and a gas-lighting dog) streetwise patter.

Created by underground cartoonist and fine artist Guy Colwell (
Inner City Romance), this instant classic is a metaphor for incarceration, and a meditation on masculinity.
