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 a...

Knowing that it’s about the romance between a mummy and the daughter of the man who discovered him, I expected The Professor’s Daughter to be whimsical. And it is.

This charming, madcap Victorian romp was originally published in 1997 and has just recently been translated into English and reissued by First Second. The French pairing, Joann Sfar and Emmanuel Guibert, have infused their girl-meets-mummy love story with equal amounts whimsy and longing. Lilli...
