Dr. Henry Jones Jr. may be the world’s preeminent archeologist, but that doesn’t mean he’s spent his life in the library! Ready and able to do whatever it takes to preserve the final remnants of history’s most significant happenings, he’ll go head-to-head against Hitler’s elite who want nothing more than to exploit objects of ancient power in pursuit of world dominance!
Be there for the beginning of this roller coaster thrill ride of non-stop excitement as Indiana Jones dons his hat, packs his whip, and undertakes an endeavor more awesome than anything ever!
Indiana Jones sets out on an all-new adventure that will take him around the globe!
That cover is pretty darn sweet my friend. I will definitely be picking up that comic. I like how they describe the adventure as "more awesome than anything ever!" I won't pass judgement on that statement until I read the comic.
That cover looks much better, but... Nazis? ...again? Anyway... I've never been much of a comic collector, except for the few Indiana Jones ones I had as a kid, like, the Further Adventures and movie adaptaions. Hmm... I might have to pick this up...
"Dark Horse is launching a five issue Indiana Jones miniseries titled "Indiana Jones and the Tomb of the Gods." Wizard magazine had a small article announcing the project with me as the artist and showing an exclusive piece of art by me. It's my first time being mentioned in Wizard magazine or having a piece printed. It's very exciting. It would be even more exciting if it were true. I'm actually not doing the series. I was going to do the series. I had been talking with the editor, Jeremy, and writer Rob for a while about doing it and gearing up to do it. It was almost certain that I would be drawing this series. I was just waiting till Jeremy and Rob had hammered out the story and gotten it approved by Lucas film. The longer it took for them to get an approved script the less lead time I had. It got to a point where it was clear that, if they wanted this series to come out at the same time as the movie, they would need someone who could do it a lot faster than I could. My past track record showed that I would take to much time on the work. So it was decided by Dark Horse and LF to get a different artist. It was very disappointing for me. I was really getting pumped on drawing Indy and I think Rob has really got a good story going. But they're right, If I had done the book it probably would have been late. There wasn't enough lead time to make the book as cool as I wanted to make it.
The good news is that I get to stick with Star Wars for a bit longer. More on that later
The picture that Wizard ran is just a sketch I did of Indy. Here are some more sketches."
Wow. That picture looks way better in high-res. I really hope they do many more mini-series after this one. It would be great if they finally made Lost Horizon, that seemed like it would have been a great comic. Wish Hugh Fleming was more optimistic about doing it.
