Indiana Jones Omnibus Volume 1 (Hal Barwood, Noah Falstein, Dan Barry, Dan Spiegle, Lee Mars, Leo Durafiona)

Small sized volume with pretty good paper that is perfect as a travelling companion.

This collection includes:

  1. “Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis”: Script – Hal Barwood and Noah Falstein. Art – Dan Barry.
  2. “Thunder in the Orient” : Script – Dan Barry. Art – Dan Barry and Dan Spiegle.
  3. “Indiana Jones and the arms of gold”. Script – Lee Marrs. Art- Leo Duranona.

The stories capture the spirit of the movies but perhaps without the same level of humor.  Although there is plenty of action, the plots explore some quite complex mythological themes and you really have to pay attention to not get lost.   I am a big fan of the movies so I enjoyed this read.

“Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis”.  A pretty good story arc with just the right amount of mystery and intrigue. Set in the myth of Atlantis with some Nazis thrown in for good measure. The art work is serviceable but nothing special.

“Thunder in the Orient”.  Based on Budah this is another pretty good story but the art is nothing special.  The plot kept me hooked from start to finish and the concepts were interesting. Definitely has the feel of one of the movies.

“Indiana Jones and the arms of gold”. Another good story that keeps the readers attention but I think this one finished a little quick.  I enjoyed the story but felt they could have done a better job with the ending.  Like the other two stories in this book the artwork was OK but nothing to write home about.

A good read that I believe will appeal to fans of the movies. 6/10 (ISBN- 978-1-59307-884-4)
