About this Series

Boxers & Saints is one of the most ambitious graphic novels ever published. It offers a penetrating insight into not only one of the most controversial episodes of modern Chinese history, but into the very core of our human nature. The first book introduces Little Bao, a Chinese peasant boy whose village is abused and plundered by Westerners claiming the role of missionaries. The sequel tells a parallel story of Vibiana, who’s taken from her village by Christian missionaries but finds a loving home with them. Gene Luen Yang is rightly called a master of the comics form, and this work will cement his reputation. Critically acclaimed, universally praised, these New York Times bestselling books were short-listed for the National Book Awards.
