review 1: So it begins again, another rejected storyline becomes a long and protracted 3 part graphic novel. Wait let me clarify.. the story isn't long and protracted on the contrary it's actually pretty fricking short. So short you're going to get upset when you realize you'll be waiting ...

review 1: These were both quick reads, as graphic novels often are. I appreciated the basic history lesson of the Boxer rebellion. I also appreciated that the series covered both sides of what was happen during the time-on the Boxer side and the Christian side. There are recommendations a...

review 1: I think I need to rewatch the show now. This book had all the good jokes and banter. I liked the still drawings of bending, though nothing will beat the animations. The show ended on such a high note. These comics don't negate all the work that was done to defeat Fire Lord Ozai,...

review 1: They're really getting into the story of how Republic City develops as an understanding between the Fire Nation colonists and the Earth Kingdom people who already lived there, and a movement toward an independent, democratically elected government. Not to mention the friction bet...

review 1: I actually needed this book for an essay on superheroes and Chinese culture for a Chinese Relgions class. Not only was the artwork and story exciting, but it was educational as well with many references to Chinese mythology . It's nice to see the immigrant experience being dealt ...

review 1: Saints is one of a two part series by Gene Yang about the Boxer Rebellion and the rise of Christianity in China. This remarkable story is about a young Chinese woman who is rejected by her family and becomes a Christian to find acceptance. At first she is bored by Christian ser...

review 1: An epic companion to Boxers and it tells the story of the Boxers Rebellion in Ancient China from a new and unique perspective, a perspective from a Chinese girl called Vibina who adopts Christianity as her main religion. Unlike the Boxer Story with Little Bao, the story mainly fo...

review 1: This is more like 3.5 stars. I wish it had been a little more fleshed out, and the artwork, while charming, felt a little too unfinished for me. Still, the story of Dennis Ouyang (who loves video games, but who wants to please his father and become a gastroenterologist) is yet an...

review 1: Cute baby, cute aliens...bad big brother! It's a light story done with compassion and skill. Best aspect of the book, besides the lovable aliens: Yang is not afraid to show an unsympathetic main character, and he manages to redeem him without getting syrupy about it. The mustac...

review 1: I am officially a fan of Gene Luen Yang's art style, but I didn't enjoy The Eternal Smile as much as American Born Chinese. The Eternal Smile is a graphic novel of three stories that play with reality and break down the fourth wall through bright pictures and clever dialogue. I f...

review 1: This was a great graphic-novel expanding the Avatar universe. I loved reading more about Zuko's past, and I really liked the twist in the end, although I guess I expected it. I really love the art in these Avatar graphic-novels, and I'm very pleased with how the characters are tr...

review 1: I didn't have much exposure to the Boxer Rebellion whilst going through school, so this was a very interesting read. I really liked how the main character called upon these beautifully-drawn incarnations of Chinese mythology to lead his rebels. It lent a surreal metaphorical im...

review 1: I liked the concept, not sure if I loved the book. Each independent story in its own was adorable, but in my mind they were really disjointed. I know that when there is a collection of stories they do not have to be connected, I just personally like them better that way. The art ...
