Remember the good old days, when movies were in theatres for a long, long time? I'm not sure when this book hit the spinner racks, but I read it (not the 3 individual issues) prior to my parents taking me and my sister to see Indy's first adventure. I would have been 8 turning 9 that summer, and I've got to admit that this comic really freaked me out. I was one of those kids who liked scary movies, but always watched them with one foot pointing towards the door. Seeing some of the more gruesome scenes (like Satipo's skewering and the melting heads in the final act) prior to the movie really increased my anxiety to the point where I was pretty damned freaked out heading off to the theatre. I survived and the movie became one of my all-time faves. I'm not sure whatever happened to my copy of the comic (probably lent it to someone), but it certainly played a big part of my childhood.
