The Unicorn and The Fox, Graphic Novel Explorers Club

The Unicorn and the Fox

Episode 46

Join Dennis, Johnny, and guest host Veronica as they kick off their Summer Special series. The gang discuss Issues I and II of The Unicorn and the Fox by Nick Bain and artist Nick Acuna. This comic book series was independently published by Ark Entertianment. The Unicorn and the Fox is a fantasy story about a hornless unicorn named Buddy who lives on a planet being consumed by an evil that has already claimed the rest of Buddy’s universe.

In this episode the gang discusses the nostalgia the books bring up for movies like The Secret of NIMH, The Last Unicorn, and those made by Ralph Bakshi; “Boner” Vs. “Gooch“; how we tell if this universe is populated by realms or worlds; the caste system that subjects four-legged creature below those that stand on two-legs; our struggle to figure out who is the audience of this book; and last but not least, the storytelling and art of The Unicorn and the Fox.
