Exactly what you expect, and with a few variant takes on movie scenes to boot.

I didn't care for these stories too much when they first came out, but I thought I would give them another try. The first volume of Marvel's continuing adventures wasn't that bad actually. Some of the stories were pretty good - especially the first one by John Byrne. It is too bad he didn't continue, or return, to the title.

If you read these you need to remember that when this volume came it only had Raiders to work from. There were no other movies, TV shows, or books so the characters were stil

To be quite honest, it sorta mystifies me when I see reviews by people who seem to find it so incredibly easy to be hard on a classic Marvel Comics title like The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones. I mean, what's not to like? The art in the three issue adaptation of the first IJ film, Raiders of the Lost Ark, could have... well... maybe... been just a wee bit better, I suppose (as I also recall thinking when I first read the Marvel Super Special version of the comic way back in the summer of 1 ...more

Media tie-ins can be a mixed bag. This one is good, though it struggles to capture the true flavor of the movie's characters and dialogue.

Nice to see these reprinted, as Marvel no longer holds the license. Marvel originally put these out in the 80s shortly after Raiders came out. And they managed to, at least occasionally, deploy some top rank talent on the book. Issue 1 has one of my favorites, John Byrne, on script and pencils, inked by one of the best talents to match him, Terry Austin. Denny

I didn't expect much, but god these are awful. The art work is bad even for Marvel. A wonderful example is Marion, who's face is uglier than in the film but she appears to have undergone breast and butt enhancements. What can you expect from comic book artists, noted for giving women ample endowments? Worst of all, the character of Indiana Jones is utterly flubbed up. In this series is too perfect and injected with marvel cliches. The Dark Horse comics weren't perfect, but they were far better a ...more

The actual movie adaptation of RAIDERS is in here with - SHOCKINGLY - good artwork from my nemesis John Buscema. He actually has some good renders of Harrison Ford's face.

The additional Indy stories from Marvel's old series are fun and very indicative of the times (early to mid 1980s), so there's nothing earth-shattering contained within. I did enjoy, however, how Indy hooks back up with Marion and watching her misfortune continue to plague him.

This book was a lot of fun and succeeded in capturing the globe-trotting adventurous spirit of Indiana Jones. It's a shame John Byrne wasn't able to stay on this title longer, but his replacements did a fine job. The art looks great shrunk down to fit in the omnibus format. Considering that it's a licensed comic from the 80s, it's surprisingly good. And at nearly 400 pages, this book is a great value.

A mixed bag. Some of the artwork is terrible. Some of it is fantastic. Story lines follow the same pattern.

Enjoyable for the most part.

I actually read this as the original single issues after finding them from the attic. Well, the original Finnish issues, which each contain two US stories. Very uneven but usually entertaining.

This was fun. Just in the same spirit as the movies.
And there were some clumsy 80s art too. So what not to like? Ok.... the movie adaption that was crammed here was not-so-good.
