Synopsis: A group of archaelogists are after possible hidden treasures of ancient Egyptian tomb cavern. If they have a dog, they do have also two locals, who try to prevent their quest. Group finds their treasture and local guys their mummy; only mummy can prevent stealing.
Comment: Very good story, by Corben himself, of humoristic point of view for ancient treasture stealing vs. mummy variation. Pastellic looking, dark colors look great. Exceptionally brilliant ending (from the moment mummy wakes up).
Alternatives, [VERS.2]: Poorly scanned from magazine.
Alternatives, [VERS.3]: Restored with piety by José Villarrubia.
