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?
Print copies of the Fence: Rise graphic novel will be available in August 2022 at local comic book shops and at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Kindle.
