THE FUSE Vol 1 On Sale, #1 for Free
THE FUSE Vol 1: The Russia Shift goes on sale this week, collecting the first case for our sci-fi detectives in a single 160pp volume for just $9.99:
"Hits fast and hard, with unapologetic wit and a no-nonsense attitude" — Bloody Disgusting
"Space cops investigating space murders is the sort of synopsis that gets my attention." — Wired
"A crime procedural in space with fantastic characters… Antony Johnston has kind of popped to the top of my list of favorite creators." — Fantastic Fangirls
To celebrate, we’re also RELEASING ISSUE #1 FOR FREE on digital, both at Image’s store and on Comixology. So if you haven’t read THE FUSE yet, you can try it out for free and see if sci-fi cops solving murder mysteries is your kind of thing.

The Fuse Vol.1: The Russia Shift hits shelves this week!
The Fuse Volume 1: The Russia Shift from imagecomics will be available in comic shops on Wednesday and it’s a pretty great deal at $10 for 160 pages! It collects the first 6 issues of our series, with the next arc starting up in a couple months. You can check out more info including a preview and some critical praise HERE.
I got my comps last week and I’ve been spending a lot of time flipping through the collection. I’m really happy with the way it came out and I gotta give it up to the rest of the Fuse crew (antonyjohnston, shari and edbrisson) for all the hard work. And a huge thanks to Image Comics for all the great support.
if one thing is clear in review, my partner in crime Antony deserves some big appreciation for all the extra work he does. Besides being a great writer, Antony also does the book design and bulk of the work on our covers. The collection looks really sharp thanks to him, and in working on this project I’ve often been surprised at how creatively versatile he is.
I hope you check it out and enjoy it as much as we did making it! The Fuse team is already working on the next arc and if you dig Volume 1, you’re going to really like the upcoming Volume 2: GRIDLOCK.
Aw, shucks :)

"22,000 MILES UP, THERE IS NO BACKUP.
Working homicide on an orbiting energy platform, in a five mile long jury-rigged steel city stuffed with a half million people, and no help from your so-called colleagues back on earth, is more than tough…it’s murder.”
I’ll be at Mission Comics in San Francisco next Wednesday for the release of THE FUSE Vol.1 TPB from imagecomics! If you’re in the Bay, drop by and get a signed copy! And if you’ve already been picking it up monthly, come by and get my undying love in person.
And if you’re not in London, but you are in SF, then GO HERE INSTEAD.
