I spent the last day of 2018 reading issues 6-10 of Fence. While, overall, I really enjoyed the first five issues, I was kind of indifferent to these. It might be because I’ve become obsessed with Saga, in which both the art and the storytelling are far superior. Or it might be because nothing much happens in these issues.
Sure, Nicholas and Seiji are feuding. There’s a lot of fencing. (Obviously.) Everyone flirts with each other. This is nothing new. But maybe that’s the problem. I read five issues of this graphic novel and nothing new happened.
I’m almost caught up on this one and I’m just hoping it’s worth it in the end.
