  5. Indian Jones and the Sargasso Pirates. Script: Karl Kesel. Art: Karl Kessel & Paul Guinan.

As an Indian Jones fan I think this book should have some appeal as the feel of the books leans quite heavily on the movies but it can be slightly hard work. I found several of the stories pretty hard to follow. The artwork is OK but at times I found it difficult to pick Indy out in some of the stories and sometimes it was hard to figure out what was supposed to be happening .  I found the iron Phoenix to be particularly confusing and a hard read. I was also  not impressed by the implausible ending to the “Shrine of the Sea Devil” (it was just a little too far fetched for me).  The saving grace for me was the final story (Sargasso Pirates) which I really enjoyed.  It had a good pace and the story kept you wanting to read more and the artwork was pleasing to the eye too. The spear of destiny was also a good read and well drawn.  ISBN-13: 978-1593079536. 6/10
