Re-Gifters is the story of Dixie, a Korean-American girl living in LA. She practices the martial art of Hapkido and is really good. When she falls for a guy and loses her focus, she finds out what is really important to her. I hate to be so vague, but the story is really fun to watch unfold and I don't want to wreck any surprises. The graphic novel format is fun because it gives you background that you might not catch in a convention novel. Also, the writer is forced to keep the dialog believable since the reader is seeing it actually come out of a character's mouth.

This book is published by Minx which is a new subsidiary of DC Comics . The idea is to offer more female centric stories. So far I have read The Plain Janes by Cecil Castelucci and it was terrific.

Re-Gifters can be a really quick read if you just read the text, but the graphics add a lot, too.
