Fence Lunges from Single Issues to Original Graphic Novels
BOOM! Studios has announced that Fence, the hit original comic book series from best-selling novelist C.S. Pacat and popular online sensation Johanna The Mad, will continue as a series of original graphic novels once the monthly comic book series concludes in November with Fence #12.
Debuting in 2017, Fence was originally announced as a limited series but an immediate first issue sell out earned it a full series order of twelve issues. Fence brings together the worlds of teen soap opera with the adrenaline rush of competitive fencing for an exciting journey of self-discovery that has won over legions of fans worldwide. Nicholas, the secret son of a retired fencing champion, is a scrappy fencing wunderkind, and dreams of getting the chance and the training to actually compete. After getting accepted to the prodigious Kings Row private school, Nicholas is thrust into a cut-throat world, and finds himself facing not only his golden-boy half-brother, but the unbeatable, mysterious Seiji Katayama. Through clashes, rivalries, and romance between teammates, Nicholas and the boys of Kings Row will discover there’s much more to fencing than just foils and lunges.
Fence Vol.1, a new softcover collection of the first four sold out issues from the series along exclusive extras, is now available everywhere books are sold, with Fence Vol.2 arriving in January 2019 and Fence Vol.3 available in April 2019.
Print copies of Fence #12, featuring a cover by superstar artist HamletMachine will be for sale on November 28, 2018.
