Water Margin vol.6

Marshal Hong, a trusted aide of Emperor Renzhong of the Song Dynasty, tore off the seals on the door to a hall and set free 108 subdued demons. But unlike the contents of Pandora's box that plaque human world, the demons shot out the hall like golden rays and changed into 108 heroes scattered over vast land of China. Their deeds formed the heroic legend of a grand scale, which was recorded in Water Margin, one of the four greatest Chinese classical novels. The heroes upheld justice and helped the weak and the poor. They gathered on Liangshan Mountain and fought against the corrupt imperial government under the slogan "Right wrongs in accordance with heaven's decree". The six-volume Water Margin illustrated by cartoonist Teo Seng Hock presents vivid scenes in this drama of valour and brings alive the heroic legend.
