Boxers and Saints (Comic Excerpt)

, || Gene Luen Yang's two-volume graphic novel Boxers and Saints explores the stories of two peasants during the Boxer Rebellion in China who struggle with issues of identity during a time in Chinese history when many were asked to choose between their country and their faith. While Boxers tells the story of a peasant who joins the Rebellion, Saints follows the spiritual journey of a Chinese woman who converts to Catholicism.
