Dark Horse announced it has acquired comic book rights to Indiana Jones and has plans for new graphic novel and comic book series as well as collected omnibus editions of vintage Indy comics, all of which are slated for 2008.  A comic adaptation of the fourth film will be released simultaneously with the movie, which debuts on May 22nd, and the new comic series will launch right after.


In February Dark Horse will publish the first of two Indiana Jones Omnibuses collecting Dark Horse's previous Indy material (including Young Indiana Jones Chronicles) and Marvel's Indiana Jones comics. In April it will release Indiana Jones Adventures Vol. 1, a digest-sized graphic novel.  The Adventures and Omnibuses will come out quarterly.
