In 1981, a surprising thing happened. Two of the most powerful and influential directors in Hollywood decided to release an adventure movie together. They called it Raiders of the Lost Ark, and it featured teacher/archaeologist, Indiana Jones.
To go along with the film, Marvel Comics, creators of the Star Wars comics at the time, created a film adaptation. This process continued for the other films in the original Indiana Jones trilogy, plus they started a monthly series, The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones which lasted 34 issues and filled in many more adventures of this action hero.
