"Meet Jen Dik Seong -- or "Dixie" as she's known to her friends. She's living on the ragged edge of LA's Koreatown, and her only outlet is the ancient martial art of hapkido. In fact, she's on the verge of winning a championship -- until she falls for fellow hapkido fan/California surfer boy Adam and gets thrown spectacularly off her game. As she struggles to win the tournament -- not to mention Adam's affections -- Dixie learns that in love and in gift-giving, what goes around comes around"--Cover, P. [4].… (mais)

A good story about a strong teenage girl character trying to get the guy and be true to herself. I liked the way the gift went through all the hands of the important characters and sending a slightly different message to each person.

This was an excellent graphic novel! I have read it at least 4 times now and it never gets old. It deals with the trials and tribulations that Dixie, a Korean-American girl, faces as she struggles to survive high school, win a martial arts tournament, survive her family and deal with unrequited love and anger management issues. By the end, Dixie manages to sort out her priorities and even makes a play for guy, all while battling for a martial arts championship.

This story, and pretty much everything by this comic publishing company, is completely satisfying and damn near perfect. The art is well-suited to the story, with first class writing, all of which leads to a first class story. I recommend this graphic novel to one and all, but fellow girls might connect with Dixie the most. ( )

I've read nearly all the MINX comics, and I've gotta say that the Re-Gifters and The P.L.A.I.N. Janes are my favorites from this imprint of DC comics (it had a lot of potential...wish it was still around).

Basically, the Re-Gifters is the story of a young Korean girl, "Dixie", her hapkido tournament, and the love triangle she gets caught up with, involving the boy she likes, the girl he likes, and the guy she never considered before. I really liked Dixie's character, because I felt like she was the right mix of sensitive teenage girl and tough hapkido student. I was actually surprised to learn the story was written by a guy, because he did a really good job at creating a realistic teenage girl. The romance wasn't overly gushy and, overall, the book had a classic teenage story feel, something like "The Karate Kid" meets "Pretty In Pink." ( )

Light and fun - the characters are engaging although the story is nothing particularly new. ( )

The story’s packed with events and characterization, making the time spent on it feel worthwhile and fulfilling, and [the] quirky style makes the book distinctive while keeping it easy to read. The book’s inhabitants radiate their emotions, drawing the reader in, especially when help comes from unexpected places.
