Acclaimed graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang is back with a stunning pair of graphic novels, Boxers and Saints. Set in turn of the 20th century China, the books offer two perspectives of the Boxer Rebellion: in Boxers, Little Bao joins the Boxer rebellion to save China from Christian missionaries and other "foreign devils." In Saints, Four-Girl is all but abandoned by her family and, inspired by visions of Joan of Arc, joins up to defend the Christians against the Boxers. We caught up with Yang at BookExpo America 2013 to talk about what inspired him to create the books, and learned about some interesting parallels between the Boxers and contemporary comics fans.
