Guide: Prabhavati

This is a guide to Prabhavati: The Asura Princess (Volume 761). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.761

Summary: This is a story about how Krishna and Indra, together with Krishna's son Pradyumna, defeated the mighty asura Vajranabha. In the course of events, Pradyumna uses his magical shape-shifting powers (learn more in Pradyumna) to enter Vajranabha's palace in disguise, and he marries Prabhavati, the asura's daughter. You can learn more about this story from this lovely video about a dance performance of the story by the Raadha-Kalpa Dance Company in Bangalore, India.

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.
