Thanks David...bootlegger!!

Just for the record...Indiana Jones Marvel UK potted History.

Indy first appeared in Star Wars Weely 167-171...







...and then Return of the Jedi Weekly 1-22 (Replaced by Blade Runner)...







Followed by a solo series - see above - including reprint of a UK reprinting of Temple of Doom, a 1985 and the Last Crusade as a holiday special (posted in the digital thread)...

...continued in Spiderman Weekly 646 -661 (replaced by Ewoks!! Later issue quite rare)








...and finally, Last Crusade was printed in Hulk Presents 1-12.








Phew!! Happy ebaying Harvey!!

Ah yes!
I totally forgot that Indy appeared in the 1st issue of Return of the Jedi.

I have a copy of that, too (I even still have the 'free badge' that came with it)

I have many issues of the Spiderman weekly leading up to the Indiana Jones merge, but not actually any of the Jones issues. By that point in the mid-80s I'd started collecting all the US editions of both Spiderman and Indiana Jones.
(I have all the Jones' including adaptations, and several years of Spiderman).

I've never seen that Star Wars weekly issue before - that explains where my IJ Marvel advertising poster comes from!
Thanks for showing it to me!

No problem.

Return of the Jedi weekly was a fantastic magazine, very much in the UK style, especially the fan gallery, I LOVED the fan gallery...tomorrow I post some IJ examples.

Maybe someone on the board had a picture printed...

Here's one of the fan art pages you mentioned (from Return of the Jedi issue 4):





....and an advertisement for the up and coming Indiana Jones comic from Return of the Jedi issue 64:




...and here's the free gift that came with issue 1 of Indiana Jones:

I just realised....
I had forgotten that this poster came with issue 7 of the UK Indiana Jones comic. I bought this poster on Ebay a few years ago but since I've been looking through my UK editions I realised that there is already a pristine copy tucked inside...so now I have 2 posters!

Kerry Gammill - Indiana Jones Issue 11 - Page 12. Inking contrast.

Here's a contrast between Kerry Gammill's original pencils with inks by the both Karl Kessel and Sam De La Rosa.


Kerry Gammill's original pencils




Karl Kessel's Inks.




Original published page with Sam De La Rosa's inks.




another gem for the indycast...

Great examples of why the comics should have remained black and white...at least its not one of those awful purple pimp fedoras they were "inspired" to give us!

...let the fans color them, glorified coloring books, (have a contest while you're at it!). Great posts, some muddy inks though!

Your extreme wealth of rare material never ceases to amaze me, JuniorJones.

Nice to see the original artwork without the word balloons. I'm surprised to see that Gammill's sketches were so fully rendered AND done in colour!

I may be mistaken but...Weren't the European editions (UK or possibly Germany) mostly black & white with only about every 5th or 6th page or so in colour? (I recall JuniorJones posting some examples but can't find them.)

In any case, I much prefer "Further Adventures" in colour. Although that non-Marvel Kerry Gammill artwork that JJ posted in the Digital Versions thread looks much better as a black & white pencil sketch than a finished painting.

As I wrote in that thread, outside of the 2 John Byrne issues and the 3 Michael Golden covers, Kerry Gammill was my favourite artist for "The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones". Plus, his issues had some of the best stories in the entire run which made them all-around winners.

Yes. English additions alternated the page coloring. In the digital thread i posted the 1st issue as an example. The German additions are in Color.

I love the Gammill stuff but I think we should note the work of Herb Trimpe who was for the most part matched with unsuitable inkers.

Colletta can be generously described as workmanlike and Bulandi embellishments, whilst nice, over shadowed the pencils.

In my veiw issue 23, which he wrote, penciled and inked stands up as one of the best in the series.

Trying VERY hard not to spill the beans too early on this one. Suffice it to say, listeners to upcoming Further Adventures segments on the IndyCast are going to be QUITE pleased with the guest that stopped by Club Obi-Wan only minutes ago.

Here's part of an interview that took place with Jim Shooter in September 1982.


Jim Shooter: Well, Gene never left. Gene, unfortunately, died last week.

Interviewer: We're talking about Gene Day?

Jim Shooter: Yes, of a heart attack but uh…at the point when he died he was still doing a regular series for us, THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF INDIANA JONES and quite a lot of other work besides. I know that Gene, like many other guys, was doing some work on the outside for independent, smaller publishers and like that.

I would like to add a bit more context in regards to Gene Day's death and prehaps the Indycast could do a short overview of his career and ultimatley his death, which is interesting within itself in regards to Marvel attitude as Gene deserves more.

Following Gene's death this was published in Comic Scene 7.





and the fallout of from that publication as detailed The Comic Journal 79

Interesting timing, Jr. This was posted recently:

http://www.jimshooter.com/2011/08/co...519664 826772

I'll check your links out. We're going to be talking about Gene quite a bit starting with IndyCast #136.

He also has a fan page (started by his brother) on Facebook:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gene-D...11777422167496

Keep the info coming...I'm enjoying the homework!

I'm aware of this as it was one of the reasons I posted the articles.

I don't think anyone doubts Shooter's recollections or sincerity and most reasonable people understand that Marvel were not responsible for his death. What I found disconcerting was Marvel's actions following Gene's death and how that was handled in public.
