Chicagoland Detective Agency 2: The Maltese Mummy

By Trina Robbins
Illustrated by Tyler Page

Continual requests from librarians for mysteries., Cast reflects the diversity of the Chicago area.

A friend has vanished, a mummy's amulet is missing, and there's a weirdo out there looking for human brains and hearts. The Chicagoland Detective Agency-run by Megan, Raf, and his talking dog Bradley-have more than enough cases on their hands (and paws). But Megan's too busy for private-detecting. Her haikus have won her tickets to meet the drop-dead gorgeous rock star Sun D'Arc. Raf is sure that Sun is too good not to be really bad. And what about Sun's suspiciously familiar manager, who looks just like the mad scientist/school therapist they foiled in their first case? Or Jazmin, the pushy new girl at school? Can Bradley pull his team together and sniff out what suspect goes with which case?

  • Combines mysteries with science fiction with graphic novel format.
  • A more modern approach to the graphic novel mystery than Papercutz has taken.
  • Written by Wonder Woman writer, 60s underground comix groundbreaker, and comics historian Trina Robbins.
