    The Fuse is a totally underrated book.It's not your typical cop drama. There's a lot here for a reader looking for something outside of the superhero titles. There's some sci fi, some political intrigue and good old fashioned whodunit.Pick this one up. You are sorely missing out. Read Full Review

    As great as the writing is, a lot of the razzle dazzle in this issue comes from artist Justin Greenwood. Specifically, he's killing it on panel layouts. Now, some of this might be scripted, but he really nails the static emulation of video feed in the Boo confessional. It sort of scrolls right off of a full bleed page. I also really enjoyed Klem's memories flooding back to her when she's holding a bottle of pills. It's the kind of thing we've all experienced, something more easily done in film with voice over sound clips, but takes a special talent to pull off on a comic page. Read Full Review

    While it may take some readers a bit of memory jogging to remind themselves of some of the character's or how certain pieces were involved as the story is playing out over months, Johnston has managed to keep the case relatively intimate so that readers are not left to balance an enormous amount of information month to month. For those with the patience to let a case unravel over that amount of time, The Fuse has been quite fantastic. Read Full Review
