Image Comics is pleased to announce that the second issue of THE FUSE by Antony Johnston and Justin Greenwood will feature a variant cover by Riley Rossmo (Bedlam, Drumhellar) that will make the new science-fiction crime series a must-have for readers’ pull lists. Praise for THE FUSE:
"Space cops investigating space murders is the sort of synopsis that gets my attention, and so far Johnston and Greenwood appear to have the world-building skills and noir chops to back it up... If you're a fan of detective stories and sci-fi that's more gritty than glossy, it's worth a look." —Laura Hudson, WIRED
"THE FUSE thrusts us immediately into a future that seems grimy rather than shiny, and cold rather than optimistic, and it's an impeccable setting for a neo-noir... A must-read. 5/5" —Jen Aprahamian, Comic Vine
"This is "lived-in" science fiction that develops itself slowly, through accumulation rather than explanation... By Issue #5 "The Fuse" will be what everyone's talking about. Why not get a head start? 4/5" —Marykate Jasper, Comic Book Resources
"Crisp dialogue, fantastic milieu, intriguing mystery, involving and interesting characters... writer Antony Johnston and artist Justin Greenwood deliver it all in this one." —Marc Mason, The Comics Waiting Room
"Detective Noir set in a space station? I'd buy that even if it wasn't by the guy who's quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. Pick of the week." —Drew Bradley, Multiversity Comics
"The Fuse hits fast and hard, with unapologetic wit and a no-nonsense attitude... It's clear that Johnston is playing his cards close to the chest, leaving many questions unanswered, keeping you hanging on to the final pages begging for more. 4/5" —Bree Ogden, Bloody Disgusting
THE FUSE #2 will be available on 3/19 for $3.50 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JAN140590. The variant cover for the second issue featuring art by Riley Rossmo can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JAN148144.
