Jean-Baptiste tackles the mysteries of the pyramids!

Umberto Leone, a wealthy eccentric, dies in Egypt. In his will, he bequeaths enormous amounts of money to several perfect strangers - including Jean-Baptiste! Intrigued by such a curious inheritance, the young man decides to follow Leone’s tracks and sails to Cairo, last destination of the late explorer. There, in the shadow of the pyramids, he will meet French expatriates with dubious motives, gold-crazed janissaries, mysterious holy men ... and above all the beautiful Dieneba…

Key Points:
  • Based on the legend of the ‘Marquis d’Anaon’, a popular tale from the 18th century
  • By the author of Alone and Green Manor
  • An uncompromising period saga that brings the France of the 1720s to life in a clear, uncluttered style.
'Bonhomme’s gorgeous art is the shining light here - beautifully shown off in the original album format/size - and worth the entry price alone. Vehlmann is no slouch though, and his stories of young Jean-Baptiste Poulain [...] are solidly empathetic'. Zainab Akhtar [Comics and Cola]

Fabien Vehlmann proved his mettle with such hits as Green Manor and a Spirou one-off, before becoming in 2009 the new official team for Dupuis’ flagship series with Yoann. His series Alone (Seuls) with Bruno Gazzotti has garnered critical and popular acclaim and earned two Youth Awards at the Angoulême Festival, as well as two Grand Prix from Le Journal de Mickey. Matthieu Bonhomme has been an artist for Spirou magazine and several children books. He's worked with some big names such as Fabien Vehlmann and Lewis Trondheim, but also solo: his first book L’âge de la Raison received the 2003 Alph’Art award in Angoulême, and his series Le Voyage d’Esteban has been met with great success.
