Brought to you by the same folks who gave you ANOMALY, SHIFTER is a roaring adventure tale. It looks and feels a lot like a video game, and that’s by design. The book is also interactive: a free app lets readers make 3D elements of the book come alive on their devices.

by Gene Luen Yang

Gene Luen Yang tells two sides of the story in his two new books. Saints is the tale of a young girl growing up unwanted in late 19th-century China. She’s so unwanted, and considered so unlucky, that she isn’t even given a proper name…she’s simply called Four-Girl (because she is the fourth child). In Boxers, a young man named Bao is frustrated with the constant onslaught of foreign missionaries who proclaim to be teaching religion but instead are thieves and bullies. They mercilessly rob and threaten Bao’s peasant countrymen and show no remorse.
