Overview: Quinn. Abhimanyu and the Conquest of the Chakravyuha

Author: Jason Quinn
Artist: Sachin Nagar
Title: Kaurava Empire Vol. 1: Abhimanyu and the Conquest of the Chakravyuha
Year: 2014

Comments: This graphic novel focuses on the character of Abhimanyu, son of Arjuna, and it also brings forward a contrasting character from the Kaurava side: Durmashana, the son of Duhshasana, who is Duryodhana's favorite among his brothers. (There is a second graphic novel by this same author which focuses on Ashwatthaman.)

Bizzell Reserves. Go to the Bizzell Reserve Desk to check out this book. Call number: PN 6737 .Q56 K38 2014. Note that both volumes have the same call number.

Length: one week. I've divided the reading into two parts: Part A - Part B.

Reading Part A:
Start by going to the back and reading a note by the author (p. 67-71). That will help you get oriented! Then read pp. 1-32: ending with Duhshasana speaking to his son, Durmashana, who says afterwards, "No one has faith in me. Why should they when I have none in myself?"

Reading Part B:
pp. 33-66: the end
