GIven the amount of epic poetry, myth and ancient poetry consumed at Kiss My Eagle Headquarters, there is usually no shortage of eagle references from each week's reading. But ... my level of trash reading has reached absolute plague proportions (i.e. no eagle references in trashy tales of mysterious smuggling rings) and my own tv watching has focused with great intensity on the QI back catalogue. Not really fertile ground for eagle references, really. Luckily, Pellos' interests have been rather broader and her enjoyment of the machinations in Three Kingdoms-era China means we have some lovely things to look at!
You'll remember Kuniyoshi's 'Heroes of the Suikoden' (from my own favourite Chinese classic, Outlaws of the Marsh), but here are a few stars from Pellos' favourite Romance of the Three Kingdoms. I find Cao Cao quite frightening, so I think Kuniyoshi has made a marvellous picture.
