I'm just glad there is an official magazine like they made for Temple of Doom.

They didn't make one for Last Crusade, did they?

Plus the collage thing looks kinda amateurish. *shrugs*

You make a good point there.. I still hope this is real though.

re: "fake" cover

I agree this looks pretty fake. I'm hoping it's real, but if that were the case, I think it would have appeared in the most recent issue of Previews (a pre-release comic industry magazine).

Assuming the magazine is for real, the covers might be fpo, which in the publishing industry means "for position only," i.e. not final cover. My company publishes Comics Buyer's Guide (CBG) and we do fpos all the time, as do other publishers. Particularly when you're soliciting products three or four months prior to the put date.

Keep your fingers crossed, but don't hold your breath!

Fake or not fake (I think it is a well-done fake that SOUNDS - but NOT LOOKS - just too good to be true), it is an established fact that a LOT of printed material will be added to the franchise.

Especially Laurent Bouzereau's book on 'The Making Of' is really on the top of my 'TO BUY' list - along with both YIJC DVD boxes and the 'Lost' Henry Jones Jr. Diary.

But you know, the movies will get a lot of coverage... If you've missed the February issue of Empire magazine, slap yourself in the forehead - it contained a teaser poster of KOTCS.

I'm not sure Titan Magazines will issue a long-running Indy magazine or periodical. I guess It'll probably be a joint Star Wars-Indiana Jones one-time exclusive edition with collectible covers or something.
Lucas is prepping 2 spin-off series of Star Wars, but I don't know if both him and Spielberg see it fit to start with spinoffs so soon... I mean: it looks as if they want to revive the 'classics' again too... Why else put the trailers of Raiders, Temple and Crusade on the site again? Why re-edit the YIJC series and so on...

Bite your nails boys and stay eagle-eyed for any magazine material to come in the next months !
I guess I'll lay off a bit not too be to spoiled by the plots, jokes etc.
After the movie's issued I think I'll do some retrograde reading.

Call me a pesemist, but this mag won't last very long. Not as long as SW magazine has that's for sure. I'm sure it will be cancelled after maybe two or three issues. The publisher will claim a lack of sales and interest. Which will probably be true, as Indy has never generated the same kind of devotion as SW has.

If this is true... Someone from marketing has been reading my posts again! I suggested in a post somewhere in the Lit table, that there should be an Indy magazine, or at best, a Lucasfilm one which covers both Indy and SW and all the companies and what they doing with cgi effects in movies and sound design, etc.

Anyway... You know I'll be buying this.

Releasing this magazine on opening day is really a great way to build up anticipation.

There was an official YIJC magazine in '92, which was canceled after one issue:

I've seen more photos of Indy for this movie than Mutt. And I've seen everything that's been released.

I worry about this as well. If this is the last Indy movie why launch a magazine to cover a franchise that is ending? Video games, comics and toys won't be enough to sustain a magazine. There must be a flagship of some kind to keep interest in the franchise.

This is why Lucas is taking Star Wars to television. To create a main focal point for the franchise and keep it going. Without new Indy movies I don't really see how they can keep interest in the Indy franchise from waning.

They should have launched the magazine, comic books and toylines several years ago so they could thrive in the build up to the new movie. At most I think they've got a two year window after the film to market the franchise with new products.

I say enjoy it while it lasts, but hope it lasts awhile. Long enough to get action figure of all the main and supporting characters from all four films at least.

I think Lucas is taking Star Wars to tv mainly because of the success the New Battlestar Galactica show has had. That show one-ups the prequels in some levels and I think he wants to stay on top of that and conquer that medium. Hopefully it'll be as good as BSG.

Creatively and artistically I don't think Battlestar Galatica has any influence on Lucas bringing Star Wars to TV. But Battlestar and Stargate SG-1 have proved that large scales sci-fi shows can be done on a reasonalbe budget for television.

Interesting enough Battlestar Galatica is ending this season but they already have a spin-off in the works which helps illustrates my point that franchises need to keep a new product out there to keep the fanbase interested.

And I'm speaking in general casual terms. The hardcore fans will always be ready for new content and stuff to buy. But based on past history I think Indy will only be mass market for a couple of years before it goes back to the limited scope of comic book shops and speciality store dedicated to hardcore fanboys.

Of course I hope they can keep Indy in the public eye as long as possible.

The new covers are actually for Issue #2 shipping June 25.



Check it out:

Newstand Issue #2 cover:



Exclusive "Previews" variant issue #2 cover:



This makes more sense now as to why Mutt is featured more in the second set of covers. It's for issue #2! (and at a lower price too)

I predict Cate Blanchet will be on the cover to issue #3.

The First issue covers still have the iconic Indy!

New Regular Indiana Jones Magazine?

On the back of the latest SW comic here in the UK, Titan magazines have an advert for a KOTCS special movie magazine, but they are calling it issue # 1. Is this the start of a bi-monthly mag like Star Wars Insider?

It could just be one of those "The Official Guide To The Movie" deals. I have one for TERMINATOR 3 that was just two issues.
