When I fenced, it was always the freakin’ epees. Foils weren’t heavy enough and sabers distributed the force of the blow over a padded upper body, but a day of epee fencing and you’d have these little nickel-shaped agony dots all over your legs. And pale girls? They looked like they’d been assaulted by an army of furious gnomes.

Pretty happy with this page. Panel 2 is a little shaky and the last panel has a pretty severe case of breadloaf-feet, but the fights look okay, mostly thanks to medieval fighting manuals and their re-creations on Youtube.
