Adapting comic books to the big
screen is nothing new for the comic industry. When looking at
Wikipedia, one can see the recent surge in comics-to-silver
screen popularity among comic collectors and movie mavens
alike. Marvel has had Blade, X-Men, Spiderman, and Ghost Rider adapted just
to name a few. DC's list includes fan favorites Batman Begins,
Superman Returns, and V for Vendetta. But in the following case, the
reverse has happened. According to the January 2008 issue of The
Comic Shop's Catalog, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal
Skull is set to release a 96 page comic adaptation on May 22.
According to the excerpt “the intrepid Doctor Henry Jones Jr.
is back in his biggest adventure yet! This time, the world-renowned
archaeologist finds himself caught in a series of events that all
point to a discovery unlike any other. But will his rivals in pursuit
of this priceless treasure seize his quarry right from under his
nose? Not if he, and a few unexpected companions, have anything to
say about it! The thrill and the humor, the action and the romance,
the hat and the whip—everything you love about Indy is here! This
is a tale sure to please longtime fans as well as foster a whole
generation of new ones!” Sounds like an interesting read to Indy
fans. Be sure to add it to your collection when you pick it up!
