Whip. Hat. Designer stubble. Man sweat. Calista Flockhart. Assorted artifacts. All things associated with adventurer/archaeologist/cool as heck good guy, Indiana Jones. He may have started out in a series of films, but Indy soon made the jump to the world of comics and appeared in the pages of Marvel and Dark Horse, where he continued to search for all manner of ancient treasures.
Technically speaking he’s had greater success in the movies than comics (although it’s best not to talk about that whole crystal skull debacle), but the reason that Indy has achieved Pulp Idol status (the greatest achievement The Comics Code has to offer) is because…he’s Indiana frickin’ Jones for cripes sake! As soon as the whip-cracking hero made it from the big screen to the paper panels he became comic-book property and we at The Comics Code are damned if we’re going to give him up!
