Joseph in Egypt (part 1), as told by an 8-year-old boy

This is the story of how Joseph became Pharaoh’s 2nd in command (as retold by Peter, age 8, in 41 panels).

It seems that Joseph’s brothers were jealous of Israel’s (Jacob’s) love for him…and they decided to off their brother.

So when Israel sent Joseph to check on them (and Joseph donned his brilliant coat), it seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Most of the brothers wanted to kill him outright, but one of the brothers was hoping to save Joseph, so he suggested dumping him into a dry welln instead of killing him (figuring he’d help him back out later).
