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

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)...
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.
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.
