Most contemporary Egyptians are Muslims or belong to the Coptic Orthodox Church. But a surprising number of contemporary Egyptians in comic book stories still adhere to ancient Egyptian classical religion. One such man is featured in the one-page story titled "Courtship By Voodoo."

A contemporary Egyptian man created a wax doll of the woman he loved. He placed the doll in a tomb and prayed to the ancient Egyptian gods Anubis and Ereshkigal in order to summon a zombie. His petition worked and the deceased body emerged from the tomb as a zombie under his control.

The man commanded the zombie to bring him the woman he loved. It did so, and forced the woman to marry the man, upon threat of death.

So, no, this isn't a very nice man. Not only did he pray to what most of his fellow country-men would consider "pagan gods," he forced a woman to marry him and then evidently treated her so poorly that she wished him dead.

Eventually the woman learned to control the zombie herself. She commanded the zombie to take control her new husband, and it did so by choking him to death.
