Cue the stirring John Williams soundtrack and get ready for the long-awaited return of adventuring archeologist Indiana Jones.
With the highly anticipated new film, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull set to hit theatres on May 22, 2008, there’s sure to be a glut of merchandizing coming over the next few months from toys to games to clothing and more.
Dark Horse Comics has decided to get a jump on the competition by releasing the Indiana Jones Omnibus Vol. 1, collecting three miniseries originally published in the early 1990s: Indiana Jones And The Fate Of Atlantis, Indiana Jones: Thunder In The Orient and Indiana Jones And The Arms Of Gold.
As usual, Jones’ adventures in pursuit of some long lost ancient treasure are epic, taking him from the chilling cold of Iceland to the watery depths of the Mediterranean and the lush jungles of South America.
Sadly, none of these tales quite holds up to the classic trilogy (but, then what can?), though they are certain to spark feelings of nostalgia and to keep fans of Indiana Jones amused as they while away the time until May 22.
