Same here, Indy_Chic. That one I'm very much looking forward to, right with the Marvel and Dark Horse Omnibuses.

It seems the Russians steal his journal, judging from the cover. I wonder if it will have all his film adventures in it, written from his perspective or if it is just KOTCS from his perspective?

Indy signs the cover, just like his dad!
They're really paying attention to details. Awesome.

The cover says...
Department: The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation
Artifact: The Lost Journal of Indiana Jones
Date Processed: November 10, 19XX
Location found: Peru, South America
Item Number: T1-5313-FJJ
Details: The journal of Dr. Henry Jones, Jr. (aka "Indiana" Jones), from the years 1908-1957. Obtained by the KGB in 1957 and subsequently inherited by our collection. XXXX Further details and notes enclosed within. Contents are highly sensitive. Confidential

Will this be part of the plot? Would Indy carry something this important on a risky adventure and lose it, like he did with the grail diary?

It starts in 1908! That means it includes info from Young Indiana Jones!

The spiel reads:

'URGENT JUST RELEASED: THE LOST JOURNAL OF INDIANA JONES(TM)
The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation is pleased to release one of its most prized holdings, the heretofore "lost" journal of Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones, Jr., which was obscured within the KGB's collection for years before passing into the Russian Federation's possession. From Jones's notes on his youthful encounters with the likes of Lawrence of Arabia and Teddy Roosevelt, through his adulthood adventures with the Thuggee Cult, the Nazis, and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, this journal covers nearly fifty years in his life, spanning from 1908 to 1957. Dr. Jones's snapshots, sketches, press clippings, and entries recording his personal thoughts are all revealed in this volume, giving new insight into one of the most enigmatic adventurers of the twentieth century.'

So Indy's complete adventures then.

Here's their site.
Edit: this used to be a small image of the back cover with the text G-Man listed.

That URGENT image looks like it's the back cover of the book. Either way, I am really looking forward to getting that.

Can't wait for this book. Of all the books coming out this is the one I want the most. Great to see they are including the young Indy series as well. Wonder if there will be much from the novels in there.

As its only advertised on amazon for £10 i doubt the cover will be real leather im afraid as cool as that would be. hopefully it will be a nice little item.

I also liked the look of these 2 books as well

That's why I ordered all three of them!
In fact I ordered 'The Complete Making of' a long time ago and the other two about a week ago.

I looked around a bit more, but the likes of adventure source books (already got one) and all the other publications really don't look that interesting/detailed to me...

I've ordered these books as well. Went with play.com instead of Amazon though. They're cheaper and I find Play.com are usually quicker delivering than Amazon.
