Fence Vol. 1 by C.S. Pacat; illustrated by Johanna the Mad

“Sixteen-year-old Nicholas Cox is an outsider to the competitive fencing world. Filled with raw talent but lacking proper training, he signs up for a competition that puts him head-to-head with fencing prodigy Seiji Katayama…and on the road to the elite all-boys school Kings Row. A chance at a real team and a place to belong awaits him—if he can make the cut!” – Goodreads

For fans of Check, Please! by Ngozi Ukazu, this is a suspenseful first installment to the comic series about fencing by best-selling M/M romance author, C.S. Pacat. Beautifully rendered images are characterized by an emotionally affecting mixture of sharp lines contrasted with round, abstract ones. Pacat’s story features maximum drama with family secrets, personality-packed main characters, and an ensemble that is worth getting to know. The only problem here is how short it is; stay tuned as we await the next installments to the library!
