THE FUSE: Issue #6 on sale, London signing, and more
Issue #6 of THE FUSE goes on sale this week, bringing our first story arc, 'The Russia Shift', to its conclusion:

THEIR FIRST CASE — SOLVED! Klem’s got it all figured out. But will she live to tell anyone? Can Ralph get to her in time? Who’s gonna get shot? And can someone, anyone, please explain why it’s called the ‘Russia shift’? Well, if you insist…

This is where all the clues get put together, the truth is finally revealed, and Klem and Ralph get to close their first case.
You can read a preview of the issue on Tumblr (there’s a preview on the usual sites, too, but the tumblr one is longer). The order code for this issue is MAY140705.
Then, in a month’s time, THE FUSE Vol 1: The Russia Shift will go on sale. As you’ve doubtless figured out, this collects the first story arc in one handy-dandy volume, for the princely sum of just $9.99. (The way the exchange rate is going at the moment, I think that comes to about 50p.)
The comic store order code for Vol 1 is JUN140504, and the ISBN for bookstores is 978-1632150080.
• I’ll also be appearing at Forbidden Planet London on Saturday Aug 30 to sign copies of THE FUSE VOl 1 — and we’ll have some exclusive giveaways for readers (including UMBRAL readers, too). I’ll post more about that closer to the time.
Finally, in November THE FUSE will return with issue #7, and a brand new case; Gridlock!
'Gridlocking' is an illegal sport where racers speed across the Fuse's vast solar arrays on magnetic bikes; and when the sport's top racer turns up dead, Klem and Ralph find themselves drawn into a surprisingly murky world of speed, egos, and drugs…
Issue #7 is on sale November 5, and in addition to the fantastic regular cover from Justin that you see here, we’ll also have a special variant from the brush of the amazing Jenny Frison, of REVIVAL fame! We’re very excited about that, and we hope you will be, too. More soon.

SPEED. EGOS. DRUGS. Are you excited?!? I’m excited.

Questions about THE FUSE:

The announcement of my drawing STUMPTOWN has prompted many folks to ask about the future of THE FUSE and I just want to be clear that I’m still hard at work on THE FUSE and have no intentions on leaving!

We planned schedules for both these books around each other from the outset last year, and I’ve been working on both for many months already. It is definitely a challenge and requires a bit of extra patience/assistance from my partners in crime (which I appreciate very much :) but so far it’s worked out well and everything is on track.

Thanks for the interest, and I hope that if you enjoy one that you’ll check out the other. I’ve been having an absolute blast working on both projects and am very grateful to both my collaboratoring teams and the fans for the support.

- Justin

If you’ve ever wanted to get into WASTELAND, the book Chris Mitten and I created together before UMBRAL, this is by far the cheapest way I’ve ever seen:
Comixology are having a massive sale, $0.99 per issue or the first 50 issues for $24.99. That’s 50 cents per issue, insanely cheap.

What a killer deal! If you’ve been waiting to check this book out, there’s never been a better time.

After discovering her dear friend Mercury beaten to within an inch of his life, Dex is determined to find the culprit at any cost. But when her path again crosses with Seattle-based investigator C.K. Banes, will Dex have an ally or yet another obstacle? Greg Rucka’s fan-favorite detective is back in the second issue of her new ongoing series with artist Justin Greenwood (Image Comics’ THE FUSE)!

Diamond Catalogue code: AUG141577

Glad to see this issue in solicitation! I think in some ways this cover defines this arc for me visually. It was one of the earliest images that ruckawriter, James from onipress and I kicked around from the start.

oshimoi asked:

I enjoyed your post on your love of football. Do you have any plans to write a sport novel, or even better, a comics series? American comics need more of this genre!

ruckawriter answered:

Thank you, that’s very kind.

The new Stumptown arc, being drawn by justingreenwood, is about football to a certain extent, as well as the supporter culture surrounding certain teams in the MLS, and the Cascadia rivalry.

You can find out some more about it here, and you can even pre-order it from your LCS (hint hint hint hint…).

Woot Wooooot!
