Today Vault announced that, due to Covid-related delays, the release of Fox and Hare #1 has been pushed back to February 2022.
Written by Jon Tsuei (Sera and the Royal Stars, Run Love Kill) and co-created and illustrated by Stacey Lee (Marvel’s Silk, Gwenpool), Fox and Hare’s full synopsis can be read 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.”
Vault Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Adrian Wassel explains more behind this mutual decision, as much based on Covid-related delays as it is on getting the series down right:
“FOX AND HARE is one of the better comics I’ve ever read, let alone had the honor to edit. 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.”
