really liked it

This, like many of Sfar's graphic novels, is a simple drama about love and it's foibles spruced up with delightful fantasy. In this case, the fantasy enters in the form of two thousand year old Egyptian mummies who somehow still walk and talk as though they were normal living men. Sfar's deft writing treats such supernatural plot elements as though they are perfectly normal, not at all drawing attention to the fact that they are not what we would consider ordinary, which adds to the fun and the appeal.
