The Chinese Steam Punk Western is back
29 January 2019 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

The Chinese Steam Punk Western is back with the same primitivist stance. What I find amusing is how a huge place like China can develop the same fairy tale as North Korea (and hundreds of other countries) of the victim of the "great powers".
