The Re-Gifters by Mike Carey, Sonny Liew and Marc Hempel is part of a cool new line of graphic novels from Minx, the much-buzzed-about DC Comics imprint aimed at teenage girls. Conceived as an alternative to the ultra-popular Japanese manga, Minx's black-and-white books are smart and hip, with fast-paced storylines, strong characters and sharp, realistic dialogue. The Re-Gifters focuses on Jen Dik Seong, also known as Dixie, the daughter of Korean immigrants and a talented student of the martial art hapkido. Dixie gets thrown off balance by a crush on hunky Adam, but eventually discovers via bad boy Dillinger that misplaced admiration can be a serious weakness.
