Guide: Draupadi

This is a guide to Draupadi: The Dusky Firebrand (Volume 542). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.542

Summary: The story begins with the birth of Draupadi and Dhrishtadyumna from the fire and then the swayamvara in which she becomes the bride of the five Pandavas, including the story of her past life when she asked Shiva five times to grant her a husband. The next episode is the infamous game of dice, when Draupadi must call upon Krishna for protection from the Kauravas. Draupadi goes into exile with her husbands, and Bhima saves her from Kichaka when they are living in disguise at Virata's court. The story concludes with the downfall of the Kauravas, the fulfillment of Draupadi's destiny as foretold at her birth. You can read more about Draupadi 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.
