(Sorry, I don't have the original publication deets)

May contain [SPOILERS!]

Volume 1

When the noble Huang clan proposes Zhuge Liang's engagement to the beautiful Ai Er, the handsome scholar dubbed Sleeping (or Crouching) Dragon refuses and instead chooses to wed Ai Er's ugly older sister A Fu.

Not long after their marriage, Zhuge Liang is visited three times by general Liu Bei. Liu Bei asks Zhuge Liang's counsel on confronting warlord Cao Cao, personally responsible for slaughtering 300 soldiers and commoners. Zhuge Liang thus decides to abandon his seclusion, and joins the military campaign.

Volume 2

As Cao Cao's forces mount an assault in the south, Jing province governor Liu Bao dies from illness. This forces Zhuge Liang and A Fu to struggle to realize the plan of reviving the Han Dynasty via the Three Kingdoms strategy.

This series, starring the genius strategist Zhuge Liang, whose name equals intelligence and tactics in Chinese culture, is apparently a manhua retelling of Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

(Although at only two volumes, does this revisit do the Chinese classic justice? Well, I guess it's good enough for an introduction...)

m&c! double launch on: 19 May 2010
