Interview: Antony Johnston talks about his new Image Comics series The Fuse, a police procedural set on a space station: “There have been ‘space cop’ stories before, and I’m sure there will be again, but many of them are more concerned with ker-razy sci-fi stuff than the actual crime. With The Fuse, that balance is reversed—there are no wacky aliens, no laser-gun spaceships, and definitely no psi powers. The sci-fi elements are there to serve the mystery.”

The Pentagon Made A Graphic Novel To Unveil Its Proposed Stealth Tank, which is not surprising. What is startling is the analysis: "They do show the GXV in numerous urban warfare situations, or deploying behind enemy lines by helicopter. If these are the hypothetical battlefields guiding the Pentagon's future tank design, this suggests that the military is anticipating a future of armored warfare as different from World War II and Desert Storm as D-Day was from Waterloo and Cannae."
