The Fuse Kicks Off New Story Arc in Issue #7
The Fuse from Image Comics kicked off with a murder mystery in which new partners Ralph and Klem had one helluva case to get to know one another. Writer Antony Johnston and Artist Justin Greenwood take the book into a new story arc entitled “Gridlock” beginning in issue #7 this November. The issue will also feature a variant cover from Jenny Frison and a bonus backup strip called “Tabloid.”
The new arc focuses on Gridlocking, a fast, dangerous, and very illegal maglev-bike race across the Fuse’s vast solar arrays. When a gridlocker turns up dead, Klem and Ralph have a new case and of course, there’s still no back-up.

"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."
I really like the way that Image has been releasing comics lately. The first arc gets collected before the next one begins. That means that you can catch up by reading The Fuse: Volume 1 – The Russia Shift before “Gridlock” starts up on November 5th.
