We read “Boxers & Saints” by Gene Luen Yang this week. You might be wondering why we didn’t include this much-heralded book in our just finished “best of 2013” series. Frankly, it’s because this book is better than that — it might be one of the best comics we’ve ever read. We tackle the first half of Yang’s 2-part epic tragedy by talking about Little Bao, his descent into zealotry, and the loss of his loves.
