The effects of COVID continue! Vault Comics has shared that thanks to pandemic-related delays, Fox and Hare #1 will now be released in February 2022. The upcoming comic is written and co-created by writer Jon Tsuei (Sera and the Royal Stars, Run Love Kill) and co-created and drawn by artist Stacey Lee (Marvel’s Silk, Gwenpool).
Read the full synopsis below:
When black market coder Aurora Yi uncovers top secret data that has tapped into the past lives of the citizens of Mazu Bay, her world is turned upside down. The mega corporation Synastry Designs wants its data back and is hot on her trail. Aurora has no choice but to turn to the Fox and the Hare, the most feared mercenaries in the city, for protection.
“ Fox and Hare is one of the better comics I’ve ever read, let alone had the honor to edit,” said Vault Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Adrian Wassel. “When it became clear that Jon and Stacey wanted to sharpen the punk of their cyberpunk series to cut even more smartly through the realities of today, we all agreed it was the right call to move the release back. Yes, COVID has thrown a wrench in the works, personally and professionally for just about everyone, and, yes, the supply chain is chaotic right now, and, yes, all of that factored in, but quite simply: Jon and Stacey are making a masterpiece — reclaiming Asian identity in a genre that has a long, problematic history of fetishization and erasure, in equal measure — and I’ll stand by them taking exactly as long as they need to make it their perfect story.”
