Guide: Bhanumati

This is a guide to Bhanumati: Granddaughter Of Krishna (Volume 766). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.766

Summary: The story begins with a curse and a blessing from the sage Durvasa whom the young Yadava princess Bhanumati has offended by accident. To avenge the death of his brother Vajranabha (see Prahabhavati), the asura Nikumbha kidnaps Bhanumati. Krishna, who is Bhanumati's grandfather, together with his friend Arjuna and his son Pradyumna ride on Garuda in pursuit, and a supernatural confrontation follows. [This is the Bhanumati who goes on to marry Sahadeva, one of the Pandava brothers; she is not the Bhanumati who becomes the bride of Duryodhana.] You can read more about Krishna, Arjuna, and Pradyumna 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.
