Description: Boxers & Saints Boxed Set Edition One of the greatest comics storytellers alive brings all his formidable talents to bear in this astonishing new work. Boxers & Saints tells two parallel stories. The first is of Little Bao, a Chinese peasant boy whose village is abused and plundered by Westerners claiming the role of missionaries. Little Bao joins a violent uprising against the Western interlopers. Against all odds, their grass-roots rebellion is, briefly and violently, successful. But in the second volume, Yang lays out the opposite side of the conflict. A nameless girl whose village has no place for her is taken in by Christian missionaries and finds, for the first time, a home -- and a name, Vibiana - with them. As the Boxer Rebellion gains momentum, Vibiana must decide whether to abandon her Christian friends or to commit herself fully to Christianity. Boxers & Saints is an innovative new novel in two volumes -- the parallel stories of two young people caught up on opposite sides of a violent rift. American Born Chinese author Gene Luen Yang brings his clear-eyed storytelling and trademark magical realism to the complexities of the Boxer Rebellion and lays bare the foundations of extremism, rebellion, and faith. This boxed set includes the trade paperback Boxers as well as the trade paperback Saints, packaged together in one slipcase.
