Indy Magazine and Comic Released!

Titan Magazines launches two official tie-ins with the new Indiana Jones film this week – and one of them is a UK-only comic title.

The first issue of the Official Indiana Jones Magazine features exclusive interviews with the cast and crew, including Executive Producer George Lucas, Director Steven Spielberg and Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford.

Find out who insisted Indiana should return for another big screen adventure; who Cate Blanchett wanted to be when she was growing up; and which scene made tough guy Ray Winstone cry!

Newcomers to the world of Indiana Jones can also brush up on his adventures past in an exclusive guide, as well as take a sneak peek at the detailed concept art for what is almost certain to be on of this year’s biggest summer blockbusters, with huge press coverage for the new Indiana Jones film after its Cannes screening.

The Official Indiana Jones Comic also launches on 22 May in the UK only.

The comic features a reprint of the official Dark Horse Indiana Jones IV comic creditted to George Lucas, David Koepp and John Jackson Miller with pencils by Luke Ross and inks from Fabio Laguna.

“The official comic is crammed with more adventure and excitement than you can crack a bullwhip at!” a Titan spokesperson enthused.

“Catch up with Indy in the all-new movie comic strip, which follows his latest mission to Peru on the trail of the illusive crystal skull. There are also some fearsome features, and in Issue 1 we enter the Creepy Crawly Corner to take a look at Indiana’s biggest fear: snakes!”

The comic also includes puzzles, all the best Indiana Jones news, competitions, two free posters and a free gift with every issue.

The Indiana Jones franchise has spawned a large number of comics, beginning with Marvel Comics but more recently, Dark Horse Comics who initially took up the license in 1990. Marvel published adaptations of the films Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade, and The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones in the 1980s.

Dark Horse has adapted the Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis video game, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles TV series, and the latest film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, with more new adventures to follow which Titan’s comic is sure to feature.
