Guide: Krishna

This is a guide to Krishna: Retold From The Bhagawat Puran (Volume 501). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.501

Summary: The story begins with the marriage of Krishna's parents Vasudeva and Devaki, followed by their imprisonment by King Kamsa and then Krishna's miraculous birth. Kamsa attempts to kill Krishna as a baby, but he survives. You will read about the childhood adventures of Krishna and his brother Balarama, including Krishna's battle with the serpent Kaliya and his other supernatural accomplishments. Kamsa renews his efforts to kill Krishna, and the story ends with their final confrontation. You can read more about Krishna 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.
