Steve Niles' new comic book, FUSED!, will launch in March from Image Comics.
Niles, whose writing credits include HELLSPAWN, SPAWN: THE DARK AGES and the SPAWN movie sequel, will be teaming with previous collaborators on the book, including penciler Nat Jones, inkers Kevin Conrad and Rich Bonk and colorist Todd Broeker.
Here's how Niles describes the story:
"A young robotics engineer, Mark Haggerty, becomes the unwilling pawn of a scientist on the run from rogue factions of the government. In the course of routine tests, Mark becomes permanently fused with an experimental robot suit and then finds himself accused of murder and the target of a worldwide manhunt.
"Now on the run, separated from his wife and rapidly becoming amalgamated with this complex exo-skeleton machine, Mark falls under attack from misguided government forces and a special unit of government-sanctioned superheroes.
"The day before, Mark Haggerty was a simple man, peace-loving and gentle. Now trapped inside a powerful, indestructible shell, he will long for yesterday, but he will have to fight to see tomorrow."
