As a child circa 1981, my favorite scene was the truck chase. As an adult now, I keep coming back to the Indy-Belloq conversation in the bar. Harrison Ford is so good in that scene with the way he...

Wow, this thread sure has changed since I last posted on it!

I was checking TFAOIJ on Amazon and it would seem that either Amazon is just no longer selling these omnibuses (omnibi?) or they're out...

I agree completely. I prefer Day's MoKF work even over the (deservedly) highly-praised artwork of the great Paul Gulacy.

Buying and reading those Star Wars comics are vivid in my memory, such was the impact of Day's artwork on me. I was big on realsim as a lad, but Day's work was Gothic, though I wouldn't know the...

The last issue of TFAOIJ was #34 in early 1986. I guess the comic wasn't selling well enough, even after the move to bi-monthly publication. I'm surprised that DC didn't pick up the rights (if they...

This is great news. When TFAOIJ was a first-run book, I stopped reading it--and most other comics--after issue #24. Shortly after that the book went to a bi-monthly publishing schedule. It's also...
