In 2011 I was commissioned by a private collector to write and illustrate an original Indiana Jones story. My client, Adam, gave me carte blanche to tell any story that I wanted to tell. The resulting tale and accompanying illustrations were a joy to create.
He then commissioned me to create another original story for Dr. Jones and I decided to tell a tale of Indy's exploits during World War II. I wanted this story to feel more like a war movie than the Saturday afternoon serials that inspired "Raiders" of the Lost Ark". I was looking to create something more akin to "The Dirty Dozen" than "Allan Quartermain".
This story was originally featured on my old TypePad website, which no longer exists. I am re-posting it here so that it can be read and enjoyed by those who may not have seen it back in 2011.
