Teaming up with the ridiculously talented artistJohanna The Mad, Fence follows Nicholas Cox as he joins the world of fencing at an elite boys school and becomes embroiled in the drama of competitive sports, team romance and rivalries, and good old self-discovery.
On finding inspiration for Fence, C.S. Pacat says, “I got really into sports comics in Japan, where I lived for about five years. I love the intense rivalries, the striving, the way you can take characters to their breaking point. Haikyuu!! and Hikaru no Go are easily some of my favourite comics of all time. Fence is like my love letter to the genre.
At the same time, I’m interested in female gaze and queer gaze art. I wanted to make something that had all the drama and intensity of a sports comic, while also being joyously and unabashedly queer. I was really inspired by Ngozi Ukazu’s fantastic hockey web comic Check, Please!, and the recent Japanese animation Yuri!!! on Ice. I started to wonder, what happens when those energies come out in a combat sport—when you add in the danger and stakes of fencing?”
“Fence means the world to me,” says Johanna The Mad. “It has always been one of my biggest dreams to draw comics, but I never thought I’d be able to work on one that I’d end up fangirling about!”
“Johanna’s artwork captures everything that is hot, dangerous, and exciting about fencing,” adds Pacat.
Fence #1 hits comic shops in November, and it’ll have covers from Johanna The Mad and Kevin Wada (and maybe someone else we’ll seeee~) and colors from Rebecca Nalty.
Our Ciel is the complete opposite of a “spare.” Sebastian chose our Ciel. He’s the one who changed all of the servants’ lives, including Sebastian’s. Our Ciel can hold his own against a demon when it comes to wits and cunning. Our Ciel continuously surprises a centuries old demon who pretty much thought he has seen it all. That’s how special he is. Our Ciel is so smart and strong, he mastered all the learning it took to be the head of an earldom before he even turned 12. Our Ciel was the one who came to truly love Lizzie and tried to be the best fiancé he could be. He was the one indulging her cute fancies while still appreciating how badass she is. Our Ciel took on the work of the Watchdog and has slain so many dirty rats for the Queen.
He might have stolen it all, but don’t you dare tell me he doesn’t own it.
