lol....i'm hoping they lower the picture a bit to make room for the Title and logos for the final comic cover.

They should place the comic title hovering above Indy's hat instead of blocking it. They need to give Indy more head room up there!

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.

I'd buy that comic just for the cover! Great stuff, I really like all of Tony Harris's stuff. Wish he were doing the interiors.

"Indiana Jones & the Tomb of the Gods" issue #1!



Dark Horse delivers with another awesome Indy cover!

Now where did WIZARD get the old thumbnail "so-called" cover scan from???



Very misleading! Wizard Magazine has been real unreliable!!!

Another thing about the new Dark Horse/June solicitation is that the new series' actual penciler is Steve Scott!

Here are preview pages from another series to see his artwork:

http://www.darkhorse.com/profile/profile.php?sku=15-501


And what the heck happened to the announcement of Dustin Weaver as penciler that "Wizard Magazine" mentioned was on the new Indy series???

Wizard Magazine publishes false information in thier articles!

They posted the wrong Indy cover scans and wrong interior artist!

Agh!!! Boycott "Wizard!"

It is curious how they would lie like that
I was looking at Steve's other stuff
And he's quite good
This comic is going to be quite promising

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...

Well they've covered the majority of his life pre- WWII
So it's probably taking place during WWII and Nazi's are the obvious bad guys
And plus we all enjoy seeing indy kick some Nazi ass

True... I guess its just that I'd like to see more different locations and enemies... but then again, nothing is really "exotic" in todays world.

Seriously I think Indy has done everything possible in each book/comic/movie
So i'm interested in seeing how they're going to pull of this comic

I hope they can get Garth Ennis to write an Indiana Jones story in an upcoming run at Dark Horse. With art by some celebrity comic artists like J. Scott Cambell, Michael Turner or Jim Lee.

Maybe even in an "Indiana Jones' Tales" quartely book for celebrity creators or something.

The Indy comic books could use some well established comic writers/artists this time around!

The new Tony Harris cover is a good sign they're taking steps to making these books good!

Behold the original Dustin Weaver oversized sketch Wizard printed in their magazine for thier "Tomb of the Gods" article!



And his Indy sketches!



Dustin Weaver popped into the Dark Horse forums and mentioned the Wizard article and tells what happened with his participation in the series over at his online live journal here:

http://dustinweaver.livejournal.com/

"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."

Ah that explains it
Do you think there'll be more mini-series after this one?

I certainly hope so, if this one is good. Maybe they'll bring back the cancelled series from the first Dark Horse run, and publish them this time.

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.

The Fedora looks a little odd in some of those pics
Like he has an issue drawing the pinch
