Indiana Jones Adventures Volume 1

From Dark Horse:

INDIANA JONES ADVENTURES
In the deep winter of Northern Europe, Dr. Henry Jones Jr. is about to undergo one of the most harrowing archeological digs of his career! Amidst a deadly blizzard, he must find an ancient monument and unlock its secrets before someone with much darker intentions gets there first! Yet there are trials awaiting any who would lay claim to the artifacts of mysterious warriors from long ago. Kid-friendly and brimming with the very best parts of Indiana Jones, this is a story for anyone looking for stunning visuals, thrill-a-minute storytelling, and one unmistakable archaeologist! The incredible Indiana Jones undertakes an all-new, book-length adventure in this pocket-sized volume following the same model as the Star Wars Clone Wars Adventure series, our most popular childrenâ?Ts series. The full color, 80 page TPB will carry an SRP of $6.95 each.

-This is going to be great!!!! If any of you have read the Star Wars:Clone Wars Adventures you know that this'll be fun for big AND little kids!!

Sounds interesting. I wonder if the artwork will be in the Clone Wars animated style or a style all its own?

I don't think I'm supposed to say. I'm sure it'll be in their solicitations when they come out.

Oh wow! I am So getting this. I like the art work, it reminds me of Bruce Timm's art for the Batman Animated Series. Very cool indeed.

You know, I was just thinking this very same thought the other day. I am surprised that Lucas never made an animated Indy series. They could have him globe hopping all over the place, going after all kinds of relics, some they could even make up, and they could even have Short Round in it to make it more kid friendly.

Maybe with the success of the Clone Wars cartoons (the previous version and the newer one coming soon) we will get a Dr. Jones cartoon.

This comic book series looks awsome. I would love to see an Indiana Jones animated series. I don't know if you guys were here, but a few years ago I had the idea for an Indiana Jones animated series.

I would set it before, inbetweeen and after the classic trilogy and I would have several characters from the films. I would have episodes set before Raiders and have Belloq in it and explore the rivalry between him and indy and how it developed.

I bet there's tonz of Indy stories Lucas wanted to tell but Harrison Ford and Spielberg didn't agree on. A CGI series would be the best spot for those stories to be told! With long story arcs like the Starship Troopers CGI show had a few years ago.

George Lucas is pumping his original Star Wars stories into the new CGI series this summer too. It sure is possible for Indy to get one especially if sales of the new Adventures book gets noticed!

Indy CGI series for 2009!!!! Even a 2-D series!!!!

I'd like to see stories set in the past as well as in Indy's future. Maybe see his first encounter with Belloq, or how he became friends with Sallah, or the first time he met Marion.

Indy fan 235 and yodazone Im right there with ya. I think this could really work and I would love to see it. I think this could be so much better than Young Indy cause it would be classic film Indy and Also I want to hear the Raiders March and not some cheap rip off theme.

You know, I was watching an episode of Young Indy on the History Channel last night (I still need the DVDs) and I was thinking how I miss the Raiders march, and how, while I like the history angle, I would liked to have seen more things from Indy's past, like meeting Sallah and falling in love with Marion and all sorts of cool stuff.

Hopefully these Indy Adventure books will do something like that.

Still, I'd love to see an issue where he is with Short Round!

I agree. It's the year 2008 and we've never gotten an Indy animated series. That's a crime.
