Guide: The Pandava Princes

This is a guide to The Pandava Princes: Pandu's Five Brave Sons (Volume 626). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.626

Summary: The story begins with the Pandavas growing up in the wilderness with their mother, Kunti. They then go to live in Hastinapura, where their cousins, the Kauravas, resent them; they even try to kill Bhima. When Karna (Kunti's abandoned son) shows up for Drona's contest, Duryodhana befriends him. The Pandavas escape Duryodhana's plan to burn them in their home, and the comic book includes the Pandavas' adventures while in hiding from Duryodhana. Draupadi becomes the wife of all five brothers, and the story ends with Yudhishthira's installation as emperor in the rajasuya ceremony at his palace in Indraprastha. [It does not go on to include the Great War in which the Pandavas defeat the Kauravas.] For more about the Pandavas, see 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.
