Drawn by strange cries coming from the necropolis at the foot of the pyramids, Papyrus comes face to face with Anubis, the god of the dead. The jackal-headed god, angered by a rash of grave robbing, orders the young Egyptian to enter the Great Pyramid and retrieve there the heart scarab of Kheops. But the pyramid is already 1000 years old to Papyrus, and robbers have long ago desecrated it. The young boy will have to search it from top to bottom.
Lucien De Gieter started off in the graphic-novel world as a writer for Spirou magazine, in 1961. He launched his first series, Pony, and collaborated with Peyo in the inking of the Smurfs. But it was with Tooot and Puit, the adventures of a young Japanese fisherman and a siren, that he gained his reputation as an author. In 1974, the first Papyrus strips were published in Spirou. This Egyptian saga quickly became very popular.
Papyrus and his friend Imhotep head off for Sakkarah, where a statue must be erected to give praise to the Pharaoh. While navigating the Nile, they save an old man threatened by a crocodile. In Sakkarah, the Pharaoh's life is threatened too: He has been poisoned. If he dies, the future will be very bleak. So our young heroes have the idea of letting the old man they saved play the role of Pharaoh, seeing as the two men look very much alike. But the deception may not last for long, and Papyrus has to find an antidote for the Pharaoh as quickly as he can! This series tells the story of a young fisherman, Papyrus, and Princess Theti-Cheri, daughter of Pharaoh Merenptha, in a very precise reconstruction of old Egypt (the XIXth dynasty).
A young peasant in ancient Egypt, Papyrus is a mischievous boy, crafty and courageous. Protected by a magic sword, he saves the princess Theti-Cheri, whose protector and confidant he becomes. He will be extremely busy protecting his friend from the plots woven by the priests of Amon or by cheating princes trying to make her disappear... On the way to Abou-Simbel, Theti-Cheri and Papyrus will have to face two bands of plunderers who want to seize a treasure that is guarded by the four colossi of the temple of Ramses. This series tells the tribulations of a young fisherman, Papyrus, and the princess Theti-Cheri, daughter of the Pharaoh Merenptha, in a very precise reconstruction of old Egypt (the XIXth dynasty).
Thanks to a magical decoction, Papyrus travels back a century to meet the future Pharaoh, Tutankhamun, and his wife Ankhsenamon. Papyrus witnesses Tutankhamun's murder and the sombre going-ons that follow his death. In danger, Papyrus is once again rescued by Theti-Cheri, his friend and the Pharaoh's daughter.
Theti-Cheri, daughter of Pharaoh, and her friend Papyrus are on a mission to bring back to Thebes the mummies of 10 archers, long-dead warriors of Pharaoh Sekenenra-Taa, honoured for their sacrifice against the Hyksos invaders. Separated from the expedition, Papyrus and Theti-Cheri will have to fend off wave after wave of evil mummies.
