From the Papyrus wiki:

In 1974, the first pages of “Papyrus” were released by SPIROU. This Egyptian saga quickly turns into a classic, the success of which even allows its author to visit the country from which he draws his inspiration for a long time and several times. Under the revealing title of “The Wonderful Adventures of Papyrus”, these albums recount the tribulations of the young fisherman Papyrus and Princess Théti Chéri, daughter of the pharaoh Merenptah, in a reconstruction of ancient Egypt at the time.

Happy birthday Lucian!
