INDIANA JONES AT MARVEL UK

For Slow Robot's 100th posting (hurrah), it seemed appropriate to celebrate another hero who specialises in unearthing old stuff: Indiana Jones.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK
1981

M-UK reprinted MARVEL SUPER SPECIAL 18 as RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK ANNUAL 1982, published in 1981.

STAR WARS Monthly
ISSUE 167
March 1983

THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF INDIANA JONES makes its UK debut as the back-up strip in STAR WARS monthly.

The strip continued into RETURN OF THE JEDI weekly.

SPIDER-MAN
ISSUE 590
27 June 1984

The TEMPLE OF DOOM movie adaptation was serialised as a back-up strip in the SPIDER-MAN weekly.

INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM
1985

Marvel's film adaptation was reprinted as the TEMPLE OF DOOM ANNUAL 1985, published in 1984.

INDIANA JONES Monthly
ISSUE 1
October 1984

The TEMPLE OF DOOM movie adaptation got a second UK comics outing, mere weeks after the end of its run in SPIDER-MAN, in M-UK'S INDIANA JONES solo title.  The new monthly also, predictably, reprinted THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF INDIANA JONES.

The free sticker (shown larger than actual size) loosely inserted into issue 1 (and easily lost).

INDIANA JONES HOUSE ADVERT featured in various other M-UK titles.
