Having woven tales of ancient lovers in The Mummy (1932) and treasure hunters in The Mummy’s Hand (1940), Universal brought their mouldering monster back for The Mummy’s Tomb in 1942. The Ultimate Guide Signed Hardback from Classic Monsters is your action-packed guide to a new chapter in the Mummy’s saga, albeit one with some very familiar characteristics. While critics may sneer at the recycled footage from The Mummy’s Hand, this hardback guide to The Mummy’s Tomb shows that there’s more to Kharis’ trip stateside than meets the eye.
