2020: The New Déjà Vu
I literally (and accidentally) walked passed the garage of Tasmania’s largest comic seller yesterday as I was waiting for my vehicle to be checked. This was the first comic that I saw from the road as it was displayed prominently in the center of the shop (see above.)
This is NOT an April fools’ day joke. See Dave’s card and auto receipt below left (both received within about 1 hour of each other):
Dave thought I was someone else and had another book waiting (some compendium about huts.) I asked how much was this one (the Indy comic we were speaking about,) and he said it was $5. I opened my bag and pulled a fiver straight out (the only note left.) “It was meant to be.” He said.
“The next Indy film may involve Indy’s quest for the fabled KING SOLOMON’S MINES, but with a twist – this time, INDY has to fight the DEVIL to get the jewels.” – Indy III comic (p4. 1985)
Based on the comic’s speculated “Indy III” to-be at the time (see quote and pic above), this is my extremely brief (and rough) visualisation of it, with the last act moving into how the expeditionary story is eventually monetised via film (a film of the expedition itself, within the film) in order to help sway public opinion to the true claim of King Solomon’s loot by Adrian Boron, but the filmmaker is actually an agent of Andy Barry and two versions of the film are made, with a battle as to which gets released!
