Bubblefox is one of the many comics created by Jon Esparza, one of the co-founders of the Root Beer Party.  Bubble is an all ages comic which often plays to Jon’s love of the sight gags and pantomime comics that he was inspired by like Spy vs. Spy.  His art has a clean simple style which leaves out the unnecessary as Charles Schulz used to say.  Everything in the strip is designed to lead to the storyline or the gag in someway, there are no unnecessary lines.

Bubblefox is the latest creation of Jon’s and the best to date.  It brings together the continuity and storylines of Peppertown with the crazy pantomime of Mike and Mindy.  The characters are a loveable lot and include the main character:

Bubblefox: The loveable lead character who seeks out to right the wrongs of life in his simple and innocent way.  He often comes across all sorts of crazy problems and adventures and works them out with even wackier and crazier schemes of his own, but like any great lead in a comic, he is often along for the ride with other characters in the strip like

Willow Fox:  Bubble’s girlfriend and the sensible mother figure of the strip.  Willow often is the voice of reason to the crazy antics of Bubble, but do not cross Willow, for she has a crazy side of her own and is not afraid to use it.

there are also the Triplets: Sap, Mooch and Clover which add the youthful exuberance of the strip and often are the benefactors to Bubble’s crazy schemes.  There are many co stars which drop in and out of the strip in recurring roles as well,

Bubblefox is a good hearted strip that is often hard to find in today’s cynical world of snips and sarcasm.  It is a refreshing change from the usual insult comics which dominate the comics market today.   Jon brings his creative energy to this strip and brings to life a magical world of characters
