Rise Above the Competition in C.S. Pacat and Johanna the Mad’s Fence

BOOM! Studios has announced a new original graphic novel, Fence: Rise, from the GLAAD Award-nominated series and best-selling novelist C.S. Pacat, fan favorite artist Johanna the Mad, colorist Joana LaFuente, and letterer Jim Campbell, presenting the next all-new thrilling chapter in the story of the Kings Row fencing team, available in August 2022. 

Excitement is in the air as Nicholas and his friends celebrate their coveted invitation to the Halverton Training Camp. They immediately come face-to-face with the best fencing teams in the country, and Nicholas struggles as he suffers defeat after defeat by an old enemy. Will a new addition to a rival team bring Nicholas closer to the rest of the Kings Row team and awaken the resilience within that he needs to prevail?

But Seiji, in contrast to Nicholas, remains unchallenged and let down by the camp. With Seiji’s goal to learn (instead of win) stuck in his head, will Nicholas step up to pose a real challenge to Seiji, maybe even growing their friendship as a result?

Fence: Rise comes to shops in August 2022.
