    PDF/EPUB Gene Luen Yang ó Boxers ePUB à ó boxers pdf, Boxers KindleCentered around the experiences of a Chinese peasant boy whose village has been plundered and abused by Westerners Boxers combines historical fiction with magical realism to tell the violent story of China's struggle against colonialism around the year 1900 It is Gene Luen Yang's first graphic novel to be set in China though it deals with themes that have always dominated Yang's writing the relationship between Chinese and Western culture religion the supernatural youth identity formation family moral obligation Boxers may not be as brilliantly conceived and complex as Yang's earlier American Born Chinese or his recent The Shadow Hero but it does provide colorful engaging and mildly informative entertainment that should appeal to young teens in particular

    PDF/EPUB Gene Luen Yang ó Boxers ePUB à ó boxers pdf, Boxers KindleHow Gene Luen Yang approached this subject is amazing and I give him so much credit as an author and creator I have read so very few historical graphic novels and it was so refreshing to see Yang paint a historical event The Boxer Rebellion in a character and motivational driven light To be fair I knew very little about the Boxer Rebellion prior to my reading Boxers Saints but after a bit of research motivated by the author's books I found that Yang's books are both entirely accurate while also managing t

    PDF/EPUB Gene Luen Yang ó Boxers ePUB à ó boxers pdf, Boxers KindleAfter reading gobs of praise for this I broke down and ordered a copy for kindle rather than wait until my next visit to the US to pick up a paper copy and I am delighted that I was not disappointed While it is not perfect in every detail subtlety is sometimes lacking this graphic novel is saturated with something I can only call resonance One feels there is something behind this book compelling it into existence This uality is most apparent in the way Yang depicts the mystical experiences that fueled the Boxer uprising While initially a tad disappointed by Yang's simplistic art once the old gods in the garb of Peking opera players soared down to take possession of their followers I was in comic heaven Having lived in China and Taiwan for years I can say that Yang has captured the powerful righteous implacable and unknowable ualities that emanate from the ancient depictions of
