    C.S. Pacat escribiendo esta novela:ESTOY MUERTO Y ENTERRADO CON ESTA NOVELA GRÁFICA. Tiene todo lo que quería y más. O sea, que va de unos niños súper guapos que hacen esgrima, van a un internado juntos y tienen una tensión sexual increíble. Que es un enemies to lovers clarísimo y no puedo esperar a que todo se vuelva aún más gay y que se peleen y luego se coman la boca. Y LAS ESCENAS DE ESGRIMA?????? WIIIIIIIIIG. De verdad. Que a mí m...

    Though I usually don't enjoy reading graphic novels, I decided to pick up Fence anyway because so many of my friends enjoy it. Though it was entertaining, I don't think I'm invested enough to pick up the next volume. Because of the amount of time between the release of each issue, it was hard to keep track of the plot and characters. I liked the diversity, the art style and the humour, but like I said, it's probably not enough for me to read what...

    Me ha gustado pero también me decepcionó ligeramente, estoy en el limbo, principalmente porque se me ha hecho muy introductorio, igual era necesario pero no me ha cautivado como esperaba. Sin embargo los personajes y los dramas de estos chicos me ha gustado, el ambiente de esgrima es genial porque no me he perdido en ningún momento y ha servido para practicar mi inglés.

    The only things I know about fencing I learned from the Princess Bride, and I still loved this! Can't wait to read the next installment and see Nicholas step into the spotlight!

    The final issue of this story arc hit home with the mental game of being an athlete.

    Issue 001 - Read 3/3/18 - Hahaha I already know I'm going to be obsessed with this. No surprise since C.S. Pacat wrote it. Plus I love sports, and I especially love when we delve deeply into less mainstream sports. Baseball is my favorite sport, and I love basketball and stuff, but I love seeing sports like lacrosse, fencing, bobsled, etc. take center stage.Issue 002 - Read 3/5/18 - I think I laughed out loud at least twice while reading this. I ...

    More than a sports comics of a queer comic, Fence is a really cool look at classism in sports, and interpersonal relationships between a variety of people. There isn't one villain, or one group of villains vs. one person you're rooting for, nor is there one person you're rooting for vs. everyone else, there's a nice web of interactions filled with people with various levels of flaws.Not only are the story and the art great, but the design of the ...

    Rating: 2.5??? Idk how to rate comics HELP This was fine. It was ok. Just ok. Nothing spectacular. The art is pretty most of the time (though some poses made my artist heart scream PROPORTIONS WHERE ARE THE PROPORTIONS) and the humor was good....that's about it. I thought most characters were annoying. I haven't warmed up to any of them in like 5 issues so I expect more backstory in future ones. And I heard there was at least some queer shananig...

    I have to say I expect more from C.S. Pacat after the Captive Prince trilogy. I love the concept of this don’t get me wrong, but it could definitely be executed a lot better. I look forward to the next volumes. I can tell this isn’t exactly a complex, deep story so I’m not expecting that.Also, pacing. Let’s make it quicker.

    3/ 3.5 estrellas. Me encanto el arte. La historia se ve prometedora, pero fue demasiado rápida al inicio y se ve que va a ir muuuuy lenta. Definitivamente le seguiré el rastro a este cómic.

    Perfectly scratches that high school sports romcom itch.

    3 stars as in "liked it", opinion might change depending on Issues 4 and 5
