Fence Vol. 1 (Fence #1-5) Reviews
Illegitimate son of a sports star wants to prove he's even better than his father, winning acclaim and respect for himself while battling a bunch of stuck up bullies and clashing with one of the up and coming superstars of the sport.
Not particularly original, right?
But there's something about this book that I really enjoyed. I like the main character, Nicholas, he's pretty deeply flawed and has a massive chip on his shoulder and he's not always that likable. I guess I see him as a pretty realist ...more
Welcome to a boy's boarding school where everyone is gay. I can tell the author has never been to an all boys environment, it's not realistic, I mean, of course there are gay guys, but not 90% of the population.
The art is very pretty, most of the time. but the story is very slow and predictable, but that predictability is what kept me reading.
One last thing, not a spoiler because is on the first pages, but if Bobby is trans, Why is she in a boys' team? and in a boy's school?
Also, she is very tin ...more
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.
Pra quem sente falta de personagens gays, diria que aqui tem bastante.
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 trade is wonderful. They don't separate the issues ...more
Oh my GOD. I don't know why I didn't pick this up as soon as I heard of it. I've been following Johanna the Mad on social media since I was a teenager, and I absolutely love C.S. Pacat's Captive Prince trilogy. I'm so excited to keep up with this series and also get some of that good gay shit ya know :)
Johanna the Mad’in güzelim çizimleri dışında averaj bir spor animesinden bir artısı yok.
Es super cortito, entretenido y con un estilo de dibujo precioso... Creo que hoy me leeré los 6 que están publicados hasta el momento porque... pues... es fabuloso y ya quiero saber en qué termina está rivalidad
En definitiva amo a C.S. Pacat
