read together with Boxers

Saints should be read in conjunction with Boxers. Together this pair of graphic novels dip into the history of the Boxer Rebellion, and are told from different perspectives. They both rely on magical realism. This one is written from the perspective of the Chinese Christians (who are called ‘secondary devils’ because of their affiliation with the ‘foreign devils’). Boxers gives the point of view of the native Chinese who fight to overcome the ruling dynasty and rid the country of foreigners (the Boxers). 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 gain more depth once you read both books.
