Nearly 2000 years ago, the prosperous Han dynasty of China collapsed. Heroes rose and fell, and three nations emerged--Wei, Shu, and Wu. This period is of history, known as the Three Kingdoms period, is an intriguing tale of heroic deeds, alliances forged and broken, and of loyalty and betrayal.
The Ravages of Time (火鳳燎原, Huo Feng Liao Yuan, lit. The Fire Phoenix Scorches the Plains) is a Chinese graphic novel retelling the same events as the famous historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms which places its own unique spin on the famous characters & events.
The author and lead artist is a Hong Kong native, who has humbly chosen "somebody" as part of his pen name (Chen Mau or Chan Mou in the local romanization, Chen Mou by mainland standard). Chen is an avid fan of the Three Kingdoms story, and through his re-interpretation of the legend, readers will re-live the glory of those past conquerors, warriors, and strategists, in their struggle for power, righteousness, and peace.
