The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones 6 (June 1983)

22338

Something goes very wrong when Terry Austin inks Howard Chaykin. Austin takes away all of Chaykin’s hard jaws, for example. I only caught one the entire issue. So while Chaykin does try some dynamic composition for the story, the art never clicks. Especially not on people. It’s a little better on the action.

The story concerns Indy and Marion opening a night club and dealing with a mobster who wants to take a controlling interest. It’s domestic activity Indiana Jones, running around New York City–Central Park and Long Island get the action set pieces–trying to protect Marion.

It’s slight, to be sure, but Michelinie writes the two characters well together. The first big such moment, with Marion casually stealing Indy’s drink, is fantastic. While Michelinie never tops it, the moment earns him a lot of goodwill.

Despite the predictable, underwhelming resolution, Jones is pretty okay for licensed stuff.
