Format: Paperback
This is an excellent adventure story for younger readers, set in 1931 - no romantic stuff, just running around chasing and being chased by the bad guys (who, technically, might not be the bad guys) in exotic locations (Barcelona and Africa) in search of an object of immense power, with clues provided by a scattered collection of 16th century artefacts. The artwork is influenced by TV animated series, and so will be familiar to younger readers. The only problem I had was that the map of Africa appeared to be a bit too modern for 1931 - but I don't have a historical atlas to hand to check.

The second in the series, this is another lovely little A5 graphic adventure from Titan Books featuring a typically-Indy adventure in locales such as a museum, jungle & booby-trapped tomb. Perfect for younger readers or "mature" audiences who either enjoy this kind of book or just crave further adventures of Dr Jones

This is a great little graphic novel for kids (and this adult as it turns out), very well drawn and an enjoyable stroyline. I hope there will be a volume 3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Raiders Prequel 18 Oct. 2009
By Bennet Pomerantz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anyone who wondered what happened before Raiders of the Lost Arc, look no further than this graphic novel digest volume of Insiana Jones...The Curse of the Invincible Ruby. This singlr volume story is not just for kids..it is for Indiana Jones's fans everywhere

Msrk Evanier's script for this graphic novel could be a prequal to the classic Raiders... If only Harrison Ford were younger, it could have been a great film. The action of the book with the intelligent words mesh so well. Jones is in top form with a great graphic adventure yarn.

I have remarked that comic books are like mini movies you read panel by panel. This is a perfect example of that. The art by Ethen Beavers is good and paces the action like an Indiana film. I can hopw he does the next Indy film adaptation whenever it comes out of the next digest of Adaventures

As I said, this is a worth while reading for children and adults alike

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, fun read... 22 Dec. 2011
By Joel B. Kirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After coming off the Indiana Jones Omnibus, which I felt was convoluted, inconsistent artwork...and many other issues, "Indiana Jones Adventures Vol. 2" was a welcome read. As another poster brought out, this is a prequel to "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (since the character Belloq is present). Indy has to find a red ruby somewhere in Africa; and, of course, there are those who want to double-cross him, or those who want to get him out of the way so they may have the prize themselves.

The artwork, to me, looked how it would if Indy was to be a animated series...with Harrison Ford's likeness still present.

Lastly, the story was a quick, fun read. Easy to follow, with the same Indy action and quips you expect from the franchise.

(Now, I'm planning to read Vol. 1)...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great art and story, keeps Indy spirit alive 26 April 2012
By BL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I more or less suffered through the Dark Horse Indy Omnibusses. With the exceptions of Atlantis, Sea Devil, and Pirates of Sargasso, they were pretty painful, frequently did not make sense story-wise, and had weak conclusions.

This story and it's Volume 1 companion are different. The art is basic but good, the stories are clear, and it has a cool prequel feel to it. Indy runs into Belloq and Forestal in these books. If you like Indy at all, these are some of the better comics out there.

Most of all, these two books get the INDY FEEL right. Apparently this is harder than I thought, because the Dark Horse stories could have been about some main character other than Indy and it wouldn't have made a difference. These are slightly more kid-friendly, but never in a demeaning way. Worth owning.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good For a Tween - Light and Breezy Indy Tale 23 Jun. 2013
By Talvi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
On the surface, this should be a sure win in true Indy form: a series of stone carvings are stolen from various museums. The police think it is just for their monetary value. But Dr. Jones and Marcus Brody fear someone is going to use them to find a mysterious jewel believed to make the owner invincible.

The book is in a small paperback sized edition that could feel really cramped if not for simple 3-4 illustrations and sparse words. The lack of dialogue is a relief and honestly no dialogue is really needed for the very simple story. The illustrations are well done, very comic feeling and help the story along so that talk isn't needed. Indy does feel like Indy - as do Belloq, Marcus, et al.

I think the problem I had is that this is about as simplistic as it gets for a tale. Take the Crystal skull storyline, shed the supporting characters and some of the plot, and you pretty much have the same thing here. Mysterious lost civilization, an artifact that is the key, some fights with bad guys, some double crossing, a big bad who appears at the end and then causes big destruction....yep, been there done that. As well, the key to solving the puzzle was so simple as to be eye rolling.

I might be a bit too old for this - this seems perfectly appropriate for a tween or so.
4.0 out of 5 stars For my nephews 21 Sept. 2013

I got this book as a present for my nephews. They liked the cartoon, but I'm trying to entice them into reading books and expanding their minds.
