read together with Saints

Boxers and Saints are a pair of graphic novels that dip into the history of the Boxer Rebellion, and are told from different perspectives. They both rely on magical realism. This one gives the point of view of the Boxers – native Chinese who fight to overcome the ruling dynasty and rid the country of foreigners. Saints is written from the perspective of the Chinese Christians (who are called ‘secondary devils’ because of their affiliation with the ‘foreign devils’). They are parallel in time and overlap in a few places in terms of plot points and characters. One of the most interesting aspects is how certain characters are given more depth if you read both books.
