The Marvel series might be 3 Omnibusses just by itsself.

And I believe that they are doing the Young Indy Omnibus before the Marvel ones.

I've owned the whole set so I don't go looking, but still 80-90 isn't that expensive really, that's just over $2 for each. Had I not bought them all I wouldn't have a problem spending that much.

Why would Dark Horse do an omnibus with Marvel comics? Isn't that sort of like Pepsi including a free Coca Cola with every bottle?

Well, the Marvel/Indy comics have been out of print since the '80s and Dark Horse holds the rights to release them in trades. Which is good because the old artwork will now be reprinted on newer/higher quality paper and not the old newspaper page format which age and change color over time in comics. The new remastered collection should look awesome in today's glossy printing paper. It's a win win for Indy fans.

I'm still having trouble finding the first Omnibus. I checked my comic shop again this week and they still don't have it. I also checked a Borders book store and they don't have it as well.

I have some holes in my Indy comic collection I need to fill. I'm going to get both the Omnibus and the original issues.

Thanks. I have a Barnes & Noble members card I can use on it.

I'll be getting my money's worth out of that this year that is for sure.

Absolutely - the new Marvel reprints will look great, if done correctly. They are also the oldest Indy comics out there, so it will have been a long time since people have seen these (longer than the DH Indy comics).

I have a couple of concerns about the Marvel Omnibus collection(s), however:

* First of all, I hope they include all of the great covers, since the DH Omnibus format has historically only included 2-5 of the covers, not all of them.

* Secondly, I hope that this actually does get released. As has been discussed on this forum in previous threads, it's unlikely that this Mavel Omnibus will come out before the end of calendar year 2008. So, hopefully there will still be enough interest at that time to release this, since it will be coming out long after Indy 4 hits theatres.

I just bought the first volume of the DH Omnibus and it's amazing. I forgot how much fun all these issues were.

I wonder if Dark Horse is going to use the "Omnibus format" or the oversized Trade Collection format for the Indiana Jones/Marvel run.

A few years ago, Dark Horse collected the entire Star Wars Marvel Comics run (107 issues plus the adaptaions) into these great big 7 volume oversized Trades with 20 issues per volume. Those Trades included all the covers and were remastered/printed on better paper. That would be the best way for the Indy Marvel run to go.

The newer "Omnibus" books are smaller in size causing shrinkage to the artwork pages!

Hopefully Dark Horse will go for the oversized trade format for the Marvel Comics run instead of the smaller/manga sized omnibus books.

Great thread! Thanks for posting these pages. I remember reading these first two issues when they first came out back in the early
'80's. The John Byrne script and artwork were excellent - I would have to say these are the best two issues of the Marvel series, and may be the best two Indiana Jones comics ever.

Here's hoping Dark Horse re-colors and reprints this whole series at some point soon! Though the rest of the issues weren't quite as good as the first two Byrne issues, on a whole the series was very good and I enjoyed it more than any of the Dark Horse IJ comics
mini-series.

Thanks a million, dude! I was too young at the time to get these when they came out. I hope they do release them again, but in the meantime, you're a lifesaver!

Thanks again for posting the second issue! Great story and art - reading these two issues really brought back memories. I haven't read these in 25+ years, and they really hold up well.

By all means, YES, that would be great!
I hope our appreciation makes up for the inconveniences?

If you had time to scan the next issue, that would be great - If memory serves, it takes place right after issue #2 (after Indy jumps out of the plane). Thanks again for scanning these issues. I used to have some of these comics, but they're long gone.

Don't feel rushed, this is a volunteer effort on your part after all, and life happens. I'm curious though about why no one is posting here except you, phantom train and I. Does everyone else really already have these comics?

There is a fair amount of members here who have the issues. My series is complete, bought straight from
the rack back in the day. Love 'em! Some great character and stories in there and #1 & 2 are two of the best.

Perhaps some people just take it for granted that almost anything/everything can be found on the 'net?
Ex. the "Secret de la Pyramide" thread. It got 1,500 hits but only a handful of people (yourself included)
participated. Add the fact that there is a percentage of visitors who don't actually talk about Indy at all.

However, if there are Omnibus editions planned for the Marvel series, this thread could have an effect on sales.

If that happens, hopefully the moderators will delete the thread or something. I like all these free things but I don't want any of them to go beyond the boundaries of law.

Bit too late for that.

I was sure I saw a comment by Jeremy Barlow (the then IJ editor) when browsing the Dark Horse message boards a while back saying that had plans for the Marvel issues but I can't seem to find it.

I remember one of the editors mentioned on the boards last year that they had a hard time finding the original film to the Indy Marvel Comics for reprints. That they might have to resort to cutting up actual comic issues for scanning/remastering.
