Dragon Resurrection (TPB) is a gorgeous little Chinese graphic novel with beautiful and vibrant art. The colors seem to flow off the page, and I fell in love with the hybrid of Eastern and Western dragon designs.
The story is a little predictable, but still strange and action-packed enough to please most dragon fans. My favorite aspect, of course, is that the main hero is a woman, something I didn’t even notice until quite a few pages in, because they had her wearing appropriate clothes the whole time! Not only is she a woman, but she’s a Chinese martial artist woman! My favie.
If you like strong female leads, beautiful art, dragons, or crazy monsters, give Dragon Resurrection a read!

“Discovering the remains of an actual dragon frozen in the mountains of Tibet, Chinese adventurer Jesse Chang sends a DNA sample to her geneticist twin brother Jack, who sets to work unlocking its potential to improve the human genome. But when a rogue American general learns of the discovery and kidnaps Jack, Jesse is forced to use the untested formula on herself, unleashing the ancient powers of the dragon.”
