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.
