When I heard C.S Pacat (aka author of the captive prince trilogy, one of my top favorite series ever) AND drawn by one of my favorite artists, well then it was a must e art is gorgeous and the hero designs are nice and smooth and also very dynamic. I like Nicholas so far. Seiji is interesting enough and the hook at the end had me excited to see what happened next. Right now it all seems like a very cliche sport anime trope. Two rivals, one a prodigy and the other a rookie, who grow closer due to their desire to beat the other. At least this one is promised to be queer and not like the really intense male bromances that permeate sports manga.I honestly had to knock off a star for how short it was. I want we could have gotten more pages so I could connect more with our main characters. It was only 27 pages and not enough to even obtain my feet wet. And at the price, it didn't seem like I was getting enough. Not to say that the art isn't worth the price because it totally is, but I want the publishers could have bundled in volume two and three coming out soon so it would feel more complete. I don't really have that much to even talk about.I feel like this is a amazing buy, but if you're impatient, maybe wait a bit before purchasing and getting into the series. I also hope that Pacat doesn't stick to all the usual tropes and shakes them up in some way. I don't wish to read a by the books sports manga because I know her writing is better than that. But for now I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt because I've loved her other work so much.
It's the first chapter so I know I should go simple but there are glaring faults that should have been picked up in editing.1/ The 180 degree rule. It's a film-making term but it applies equally to anime/manga. (Google it if you don't understand) You just don't ever cross the line. This would be ESPECIALLY necessary if both characters are identically dressed, except for a pair of shoes.2/ Be consistent with how each hero looks. Especially in the early stages. I won't say any more because to explain would be spoilery. I was left scratching my head while saying "What?".Yes, I got it, but I shouldn't need a magnifying glass to identify a ly, I'm really sorry to be critical but I was left with a vague sense of disappointment. I love CS Pacat's work & I'll read the next instalment because I KNOW the story will be great. That's a given. The author is a genius storyteller. I just want this had been twice as long and a bit clearer.
I understand that most of the criticism is from people more used to novels and other long-form fiction, but 27 pages is actually beautiful long for a comic book issue. If that seems a bit short to you, reading this later once the five problem run comes out might be more your ne? Good. Now, for the comic itself. You'd never know that C.S. Pacat or Joanna the Angry had never done a full length comic before, allow alone a professional one. The quality is top-notch, surpassing industry stalwarts who have been in the android game for years. This is a first issue, so by necessity of pacing, it's mostly setup. But it gives you a taste of the personalities involved, shows you the stakes and fleshes out the main character's motivation and background in a few deft photos that are striking and as clear as can be. Now, with that done, I can't wait to search out what happens once it hits full speed in the second issue!
The storytelling and art are superb, five star quality--on par with Pacat and Johanna's other works. However like other reviewers, I had to take a point off for the length. 27 pages is painfully short. I read it in a commercial break. I seem to remember there is going to be six issues, with the option of more in the future (based on something Pacat said), however I feel it will be a struggle to obtain a satisfying story in just six problems if they are all this short.I suspect this is going to be a case of supply not being able to hold up with demand. I recommend everyone help the comic and buy all the editions so it can be a success and continue, however I am concerned we'll all become invested, only to be left out in the cold when the author, artist or publisher decide it's not generating enough interest to continue. I pray wholeheartedly I will be proved wrong and can give problem #109 a glowing 5 star review.
I've been eagerly awaiting this, so much so that even after ordering a physical comic and a variant cover comic of problem 1, I still couldn't wait and got the digital too, and it was worth it. I'm very excited to read more. I know almost nothing about fencing, but like Check, Please, I'm thinking this will teach me as we go. The two leads are both so intriguing and in completely various ways. I've always had a soft spot for not good but determined children with talent, and Nicholas is exactly that. Likewise, I love mysterious, conceited types whose real personality you explore over time. Not to compare the two canons, but their first confrontation reminded me a lot of Kirk and Spock in the 2009 Trek film.
‘Fence’ is a fresh young adult comic series from Boom! Box, written by C.S. Pacat and illustrated by Johanna the Mad. It launched in November and only two problems have been released so far – but it is going to be a once-a-month schedule, with the first Volume of problems 1-5 due for July 2018 rst of all – Boom! Box (or, Boom Studios) is hella smart. They are the publisher behind what feels like a fresh wave of comic books – ones that are more diverse, inclusive and directly aimed at a young generation who weren’t previously swayed by the offerings of Marvel and DC. Boom is responsible for such groundbreaking and famous series as 'Giant Days', 'Goldie Vance', 'Misfit City' and perhaps most famous of all among certain fandom’s - 'Lumberjanes'.Boom are also part of a fresh era in comic books fusing with fiction writers like never before, and especially those who have appeal to younger (teen, mostly) readers – such as Rainbow Rowell partnering with First Second Books for a graphic novel called 'Pumpkinheads', to be illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks and releasing in m inviting C.S. Pacat to make her own YA comic book was a bold, and intelligent move. Given that Pacat didn’t begin her career (into the stratosphere!) with a YA series, rather her debut ‘Captive Prince’ trilogy was LGBT fantasy romance (some would say erotica, at times) that found a large teen fanbase because it started life as an online serial of original fiction that went viral, before being acquired by traditional publisher Penguin Random House. In any case – Pacat’s series became huge, particularly in the ways it highlighted and proved young people’s craving for more LGBT stories across all her the reigns to develop her own comic series at the height of this popularity is pure genius – and it pays off (tenfold) in ‘Fence’. Set at the prestigious Kings Row boarding school and following a group of boys trying to come together as an elite fencing squad to take out the top-ranked competitors. The series is focused on rivals, teammates and roommates Nicholas Cox and Seiji o problems in and this globe already feels so full and vibrant (a testament to this is how it’s already impressively sparked Tumblr imaginations). There’s a large focus on rivalries and love affairs, skeletons in the closet and backstabbing afoot. The series has echoes of 2001 movie ‘Lost and Delirious’ for me, maybe with a small ‘One Tree Hill’ and a feel of something like ‘Kids on the Slope’ or ‘From Up on Poppy Hill‘ thrown in. But honestly, ‘Fence’ is so wholly original it’s hard to quite place your finger on all that it evokes. Except to say it’s building a wonderfully full cast of characters, based in a little student community and with so much room for drama and emotional action – I’m already salivating at the possibilities!Illustrations by Johanna the Angry create me crave this being turned into an animated-series, even though it would work equally well as live-action drama there’s just something about the art that sumptuously fits the whole special story.If you haven’t already, do begin collecting all the ‘Fence’ problems and jump on this series bandwagon – I guarantee that even these two problems will fuel your imagination for what’s to come, and if that’s the case you can easily tap into an already very full and vibrant fandom that’s emerged in the wake of its decadent genius.
It was so short. I could hardly even call it a chapter. It's set up like a sports manga, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I was also not very impressed by the art which surprised me. I'll read the next book, but unless it's longer I don't see the story progessing
This problem shows what will undoubtedly be the driving force of Seiji and Nicholas' relationship and how they will both move forward. For anyone who doesn't know, I looked up the series on Pacat's www service to see when Problem #7 would be released, but it looks like this will be a six problem release until there are enough fans. So for any other eager readers, it seems we're in for a wait until Fence builds some momentum.P.S. There is additional content in the physical editions.
My only complaint about the Fence series is that I want each problem was longer. I'm intrigued by the storyline and I will probably continue to follow it, but part of me wishes I discovered this series after a huge chunk had already been written, because I'm not patient.
Harvard and Aiden for life!! I obtain the feeling Aiden and Harvard have romantic feelings for each other, or at least potential for some kind of committed relationship~ Bobby is the best; he’s so sofffttt~~ And Nicholas and Seiji’s antagonism is amusing~When does the next one come out??
The story’s finally picking up the pace but it’s utterly mind-numbing to have to wait an entire month to read the next issue. Also, it’s still taking so long for these matches to happen. idk. Still, well illustrated, I’ve always loved the artist’s pieces from when she posted fanart on Tumblr. She perfectly encapsulates the characters and their feelings. The writing still leaves much to be desired.
Such a fun dynamic issue! I'm so impressed that the comic gets better and better with every next issue! Highest of praise to cat and Johanna the Mad!I love that we obtain to see more of the boys and their everyday life of the school. Everyone is adorable and sweet, except Aiden, he's a fox. I'm so satisfied to see the development of friendship between Nicholas and Bobby, these two are so precious and I love so the fencing! Amazing non-infodumpy panels of fencing techincs etc. The competetion is at full speed and I'm highkey excited to see who'll create it to the e illustrations are ever gorgeous, I love love love the visuals. Unique thank you for every Bobby panel.
This problem is by far my fave in the series, but not because the others weren’t great, they were amazing as well!!! This one was just so so funny and all the characters are so lovable and spectacular. Aiden!!! That attractive heartbreaker owns my soul!!!! but all the other characters own my heart too they’re just so special and fun & this story is just so so cute! Looks like my dad is going to have a monthly payment of this comic LOL Seriously though this comic keeps me upbeat every month I’m so satisfied it exists!!! *crying emojis+heart emojis*
To read this amazing comic bit by bit. If I had any brains I’d wait for a few more to build up because I WANT IT ALL NOW! It’s that good. It’s a testament to the writing and artwork that things are fleshed out, characters are built and the globe of the boarding school and the fencing academy leap from the page. Can’t wait for #4.
Wow Neon D-Fence really keeps me on my toes!! The flying neon bats hold me constantly fixing my turrets and really gives me a amazing challenge!! Fun and nice looking graphics!! I'd recommend playing it! It looks like you can buy it on , google play store, and recently amazon games!! Check it out if you like turret defence games, that the opponent moves a long a path.
Buy this book. Don't just think about reading it, actually read it. Wonderful factually based and backed up story that is an absolute page turner. Really goes deep into the topic and the emotions of the events. @#$% Lehr did a fantastical job writing this book. Looking forward to reading another book of his soon.
An perfect acc that highlights how the disgusting "Blue Wall of Silence" mentality that dominates among today's police officers is imposed, even versus one of their own. "The Fence" provides a well-documented, gut-wrenching glimpse into what thousands of victims of killer-cops and police brutality experience every year in America. It's a frightening epidemic. (#ThePermit)
Being former law enforcement myself, this book was really disturbing to say the least. I know this occurred in the mid and late 90's but I do question why decided to trace the harassment and phony 911 calls if the Feds were helping him with his case.
This is a amazing book. A tale of police corruption, intelligently and suspensefully retold by Lehr, which, frighteningly enough, is all true. If you like the urban noir of Richard Price's fiction, or the pace of Jonathan Harr's nonfiction "A Civil Action" - this book, as well as Lehr's previous "Black Mass," are "must-reads"!

I know this sounds cliche but it's true, I literally could not place this book down. I finished it in 2 days, even delayed my weekend trip to [email protected]#$%!! This book is so well written and riveting, I was on the edge of my seat feeling like I couldn't read it quick enough. So much was revealed in this book that unfortunately (for Kenny Conley especially) wasn't revealed at trial, which a lot of people need to understand exposes the a lot of flaws in our "justice" system. Fortunately for Kenny, he had connections especially because he was a police officer, but what about Joe Citizen? It's clear that if you don't have a lot of cash to buy justice (because you can't obtain it without money), your next best bet is to have lots of mates in high places. Most of us don't dly, I live in the Boston area, although I know this problem is a national one, but the race problem is far from over, is quite likely worse than ever now. My significant other is Black and was a victim of police testilying 4 years ago (overwhelming evidence proves it, but he didn't have the means to obtain amazing counsel), arrested and jailed for over 3 years. He's not gone to trial yet but as you will read in this book, testilying is so pervasive you could say that it's almost impossible to trust any police officer. This means, our lives and words (especially if you are a person of color) are up versus this huge well-paid and well-connected "fraternity," and its extension into the DA's office and even courts, that are more likely to lie to WIN (yeah, it's a huge game) regardless of guilt. Yet the public in general is unknowingly more likely to believe a police officer simply because he/she believes police officers all uphold the law (thanks to shows like Law and Order). But in true life, most do not, this book reveals that fact, studies cited prove it overwhelmingly, as well as numerous other studies not mentioned. This is not about a few poor apples. Granted there are some amazing police officers but when an entire department sees itself as a "fraternity," the amazing ones have no choice but to turn a blind's eye or simply join the crowd, thus turning the whole bunch rotten.
