Read full description of the books:
I didn't have a clue about this graphic novel and it was a surprise. It defies category. It is nothing you will expect which in itself is refreshing. The daughter of an Egyptian Archaeologist is dating the mummy he brought home, Imhotep 4th. There is daring, death, trials, break-in - just about anything you can think to throw in this novel has.
I enjoyed the art. I saw someone use whimsical and I think that is the perfect word for this work - whimsical. It is nothing serious and it not meant to make sense.
This is a strange and unusual story. I enjoyed it just for the sake of being surprised and unsure on every page. I've never read anything like it really. Anyone who wants a different and new kind of story should give this a go. It's in a category by itself.

Read information about the authorJoann Sfar (born August 28, 1971 in Nice) is a French comics artist, comic book creator, and film director.
Sfar is considered one of the most important artists of the new wave of Franco-Belgian comics. Many of his comics were published by L'Association which was founded in 1990 by Jean-Christophe Menu and six other artists. He also worked together with many of the new movement's main artists, e.g. David B. and Lewis Trondheim. The Donjon series which he created with Trondheim has a cult following in many countries.
Some of his comics are inspired by his Jewish heritage as the son of Jewish parents (an Ashkenazi mother and a Sephardic father). He himself says that there is Ashkenazi humor in his Professeur Bell series (loosely based on Joseph Bell), whereas Le chat du rabbin is clearly inspired by his Sephardic side. Les olives noires is a series about a Jewish child in Israel at the time of Jesus. Like Le chat du rabbin, the series contains a lot of historical and theological information.
His main influences are Fred and André Franquin as well as Marc Chagall, Chaim Soutine, Will Eisner, Hugo Pratt and John Buscema.
From 2009 to 2010, Sfar wrote and directed 'Serge Gainsbourgh: Une Vie Heroique', a biopic of the notorious French songwriter, of whom Sfar is a self-confessed fanatic. The film, which draws substantially on Sfar's abilities as a comic book artist through its extensive use of fantasy artwork, animation and puppetry, was released in 2010 to general critical acclaim.
