Hehehe... yes that's true!

Anyway, in my opinion the comic adaptation is really poor - not to say horrible. Especially if compared to some wonderful work of art that the Dark Horse have delivered us in the past (I adore the graphics and the colors of FOA comic).

Colors are really stupid in KOCTS comic and the drawings aren't so good. Harrison looks really much older and actually, as someone else said, it all seems made up in a hurry...

More than that, can anyone explain to me why there are certain more or less relevant differences between the adaptation and the movie, usually without any need (for instance, the different "UFO" at the ending or the different Indy gear in the warehouse scene - with jacket)? Can it depend on the fact they've prepared the comic without seeing the movie???

Well, at least they got a great looking Spalko on the cover.

Of course, they can change covers all they want, the inside pages still stink something fierce....

The good folks at Rebelscum.com has the cover posted on their "Indy" comic cover gallery:

From the "LR" initials on the cover, it looks like this cover is drawn by interior artist, Luke Ross.

(wonder if he drew one for issue #2...)

this pencil sketch might be for issue two?i found it on comicartfans.com and the artist is luke ross

My god Marion looks extremely hot in that sketch.

(Not disrespect to Karen Allen. Frankly I still have the same crush on her as I did when I was 8)

And Oxley looks like a menacing 'nam veteran. He looks angry as hell. He's gonna beat some ass with his stick.

Very cool art page. Excellent find!

Marion looks like a Mary Jane from Spiderman in that pic.
(when Todd Mcfarlane used to draw the Spidey books)

Wonder if they're going to include the KotCS adaptation in Vol. 3 of the Further Adventures trades?

I will make it my life's mission because someone, somewhere must have taken the time to digitize them.

On that point, anyone know where I can get digital verisons of the novels?

That's why I keep having the feeling that I'm going to find them...
