The Fuse Vol.1: The Russia Shift hits shelves this week!

image

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.

LONDON: Signing at Forbidden Planet Megastore, August 30
A reminder for anyone in or around London next weekend that I’ll be appearing at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday August 30, between 3-4pm.
(That’s next Saturday, not this bank holiday weekend.)
Eagle-eyed readers will note the date is just three days after THE FUSE Vol 1: THE RUSSIA SHIFT goes on sale, which is of course no coincidence at all.
But UMBRAL readers shouldn’t feel left out, because we’ve produced exclusive, signed and numbered limited edition bookplates for both THE FUSE and UMBRAL, featuring original art by Justin Greenwood and Christopher Mitten, for the event. We’ll give one away with each of the first 150 copies of THE FUSE and UMBRAL trade paperbacks sold.
(That’s them in the main image, if you hadn’t guessed.)
If you can’t make it to the event, don’t worry — you can also order these “mini-print” editions online, although priority will be given to people actually buying in-store on the day. Nevertheless, if you want to order online, check the event page for details.
And of course readers of WASTELAND, THE COLDEST CITY, DAREDEVIL, whatever, are all welcome, too. Come one, come all. This will probably be the biggest signing I’ve yet done, so try and get there early, or at least on time, if you can.
Hope to see you there!

Wednesday Aug 27th - 4pm

Come meet Justin Greenwood, artist on the just released FUSE Vol. 1, a police procedural set on a giant orbiting space station in the not so distant future.

RSVP on facebook 

"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.

"Reader response to THE FUSE has been amazing, especially to our unique grumpy old female detective, Klem,” said Johnston. “Now in ‘Gridlock’ we’re turning up the sci-fi, and delving deep into the seedy underbelly of this run-down space station. Justin is doing the best work of his career, and I can’t wait for readers to see it.”

— Image Comics announces THE FUSE #7, starting a new story arc 'Gridlock', and reveals our awesome variant cover by the amazing Jenny Frison (Revival, Red Sonja).

It’s on sale November 5. Pre-order codes:

REGULAR COVER: SEP140719

VARIANT COVER: SEP140720

Love that Jenny Frison cover! FUSE fans are gonna love this next arc.

explosionshark asked:

Hi Justin! I don't know if you remember, but I was the first person to send you a tumblr ask back in May and you quite generously offered me a prize of some sort closer to the release date of your first issue on Stumptown. Given that we've got a month to go, I thought I'd drop by to see if the offer was still open. Also, you are absolutely KILLIN IT on The Fuse. Klem carrying Rocky out of the burning house in issue #6 was so fucking cool. Wow.

Hey thanks so much for that! The Fuse #6 was a lot of fun to draw and I remember getting super pumped about that image when reading the script.  I’d hoped to do the moment justice.

Of course I remember and I’m glad you checked back in. I have something here to send out to you- let’s get in contact and I’ll get it out in the mail soon.

This weekend is StocktonCon!

image

I’ll be attending StocktonCon this weekend and I’m excited to check it out. It’s a growing show and is involved with some great charities so if you’re close to the Central Valley, come through and check it out.

On Sunday at 11am, I’ll be on an Image Comics panel with Landry Walker talking shop and about our books DANGER CLUB and THE FUSE. It’ll probably be largely Q and A based so it’ll be a great opportunity if you’ve been wanting to pick the brain of a couple local creators.

You can find me at Table AA-3, across from my pals at actionlabdangerzone and next to dennisculver and Stockton’s own ramonvillalobos. I’ll be doing commissions at the show, including a StocktonCon exclusive version that should be pretty sweet. And I’ll have a slew of books and some new prints to check out as well. Make sure to drop by and say hello!
