Guide: Bheeshma

This is a guide to Bheeshma: Selflessness Personified (Volume 534). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.534

Summary: The story begins with the strange marriage of King Shantanu and the goddess Ganga, resulting in the birth of their son Gangeya, also known as Devavrata, and later known as Bhishma. The first half of the comic book ends with Bhishma's vow of celibacy. The second half tells of Amba's vow to kill Bhishma, her reincarnation as Shikhandin, and Bhishma's fall in the Great War at the hands of Shikhandin and Arjuna. You can read more about Bhishma at Wikipedia.

I have not had time to write the Reading Guide for this one, so please help me with that: in addition to doing your own Reading Diary post at your blog, leave a comment here at this blog where you list the names, places, topics, anything you saw in this comic book that I could/should explain the Reading Guide later.

If you don't see anything that need explaining, leave a comment that says "Everything clear" or something like that.

That way, with your help, I'll be able to focus my attention on the comic books that people have the most questions about.
