The Indiana Jones Omnibus Volume I by Dark Horse is exactly what I expected it to be - three tales of our favorite adventures of Indiana Jones with great art, decent stories and a fun read. Thats EXACTLY what it is. The illustrations fit the stories perfectly, and the stories (for the most part) keep you moving along from all point over the globe. The stories do suffer from some clumsy transitions, where suddenly Indy "is on a motorcycle and he never had one before" when 2 panels ago they were on foot. If you can overlook a few minor story inconsistancies, then this is worth the time.

I loved it because it's bound well, printed on decently weighted gloss paper and the sharp colors look GREAT! It comes in at 350+ pages, so its a good size tome, but still at a very readable size - a little larger then a regular paperback book. I travel a lot and these books are great travelers. They are simple enough that I can read 20-30 minutes at time (waiting for boarding, luggage, takeoff, etc) but yet it will take you 5-7 days to get through one story. The fantastic original cover illustrations are included as well.

If are a die hard "Indy" fan or just want some fun "light" stories with great illustrations to read, you can't go wrong with this volume of Dark Horse's Indiana Jones.

If you read all of the reviews here (and for Dark Horse's Omnibus Vol 2), you will find some reviewers who say, "Indiana Jones is great," and other reviewers who say things like, "These stories do not make sense, for example see page..." Yes, these books contain a guy in a fedora, but there is a reason multiple reviewers complain about disjointed stories.

It seems like Indiana Jones comics could be easy to write: He's a serial adventurer with treasure hunts that sometimes intersect with cool historical events or people. But somehow, it's not as easy as one might think... at least it doesn't look that way when you read these Indy comics.

Indy and the Fate of Atlantis is, in my opinion, the best Indy comic out there. It's a mini-series that introduces Indy's best non-movie female lead, Sophie Hapgood, his most memorable non-movie nemesis, Klaus Kerner, and the best mystery/treasure, Atlantis. Sophie is great because she's different from other female leads out there, but is still likeable and serves a meaningful role in the story. Kerner is great because he's an archaeologist himself, and he manages to surprise Indy a couple of times. Lastly, Atlantis is great because it's not just a relic people are racing for, it's a gradually unravelling mystery that kept me engaged throughout. In short, this story feels like the one that SHOULD have been made into a movie (instead of Crystal Skull, I wish!).

Indy: Thunder In the Orient has a lot going on but sometimes characters change appearance drastically (from redhead to blonde, etc). It has a good Macguffin that has political power (not just supernatural power), which is a nice, sensible change.

Indy and the Arms of Gold is my least favorite. It's okay, but brutally disjointed...

... which is the key word for these books, especially Volume 2: Disjointed. I have read X-Men, Star Wars, Spider-Man, Batman, all the regular comics... but these are be far the MOST DISJOINTED COMICS I HAVE EVER READ. It is just plain odd. With the exception of "Atlantis," every story will have you wondering if you fell asleep or skipped a page, because things do not make sense.

The writers fail to let readers know what's supposed to be happening. The artists, though basically competent, will sometimes have you staring at frames wondering what the heck is going on. It's hard to get my head around how they goofed up the most basic stuff in comics. I mean... Do you read Charlie Brown and get confused about what's happening? Am I going crazy here? Somehow in these basic adventure comics, the reader will be left confused --and therefore unsatisfied.

Bought this for the Fate of Atlantis story, very mediocre story compared to the game, and the art was a little off at times.
Still fun to ready though.

I am a longtime fan of Indiana Jones and a recent fan of the various Omnibus graphic novels by Dark Horse. I have very much enjoyed the Star Wars Omnibus books, so I thought I would give Indy a chance. Indiana Jones Omnibus Volume 1 did not disappoint me. I enjoyed the three tales in the book, and the illustrations are excellent. They stay very true to the films. Some of his escapes from perilous situations are even harder to believe than in the movies, but they are still fun. If you like Dr. Jones (and who doesn't?), you will enjoy this first Indy Omnibus from Dark Horse. Volume 2 has already been announced, so there are more Indy graphic adventures to look forward to.

Glad you had this in stock if you like Indiana Jones movies you will like Omnibus series so order these Omnibus books and you will not be disappointed.

Delivered as promised - right on time and undamaged.

The art of all three included stories definitely evokes the two-fisted tales of old, and the writing definitely has that wry style and depth you see in the classic movies.

I love Indiana Jones. I have since I was a kid.

I also love graphic novels.

So when I saw that there was an Indiana Jones graphic novel, I couldn't help but jump at the chance to pick it up. Unfortunately, it's not all that good, not as Indiana Jones nor as a graphic novel.

Sure, all the elements of a good Indiana Jones story are there--Nazis, ancient mythical artifacts and civilizations, exotic locales and beautiful women--but the writers evidently never quite figured out how to write Indiana Jones as Indiana Jones, and not just some guy in a fedora with a whip. Likewise, the art is lackluster and doesn't portray the action or the characters particularly well.

I guess that's what disappointed me about this collection: it had all the elements of great Indiana Jones stories, but doesn't know what to do with them. In the end, it feels hollow and disjointed, which is a shame.
Nothing here is as good as Raiders (but what is), but there's still fun to be had. The art is ok, not slick and modern, but still tells a good story.
