A (Marvel) Super Special Movie
I was very excited to hear that one of my favorite movies of all time was going to be released on Blu-ray fully restored on September 18. Raiders Of The Lost Ark is the perfect blend of action, adventure, comedy, and thrills that continues to impress me and many, many others like me, even 30+ years after its release. As a comic book fan, I was excited to pick up the adaptation in Marvel Super Special #18. I got even more excited when I found out that one of my favorite artists, Big John Buscema, was penciling the book. While it's certainly not his best work, I think Buscema captured the flavor of the movie pretty well. I especially enjoyed the individual panels that graced the back cover of the book.
If you're a Marvel fan and a fan of great movies, you probably already own this. If not, it's fairly easy to find and cheap. If adventure has a name, it must be Indiana Jones (or Marvel Comics).
