The bodies are starting to pile up. None of this case makes a lick of

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian May 28, 2014

    THE FUSE blends sci-fi and crime -- two very hot genres amongst the Image set right now -- in a crisp, fast-paced read with surprises at every turn. It's not quite hardboiled, but it doesn't need to be; the characters of THE FUSE make the world an interesting place, even without an extra dose of grit. Natural-sounding dialogue and a kicked-up crime story keep things engaging, and keep us guessing who's behind the murders. Read Full Review

    After four issues, readers are finding themselves going deeper and deeper into this thing and it is looking like that issue five will continue that trend in the most literal sense. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge May 28, 2014

    With a cliff-hanger ending like the one at the end of The Fuse #4 its pretty hard to not recommend coming back the next month to find out what happens. But even without that, this is turning out to be an expertly told mystery comic that makes up for the fact that it hasnt used its science-fiction element enough yet. Greenwood is capable of drawing some wicked looking stuff but he hasnt yet been able to cut loose. Heres to hoping that the start of the next issue is as explosive as I think it can be.

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli Jun 3, 2014

    It's a bit of a talky issue, but we get to meet Klem's son and the complications that brings, more of the FLF is explained, and there's even some notes in the letters about gender politics in pop fiction. Justin Greenwood's art seems to grow and evolve with every project, here it's the backdrops in Central Park, with a sense of depth and layers that were perhaps missing from some of his very early work, visually extending Antony Johnston's already strong world-build. Ralph wanted to further indoctrinate himself in the intricacies of Midway culture, and uhh, be careful what you wish for! #SpringRolls Read Full Review
