2001 updates...
Sunday, January 7, 2001 - Gilles V

The Holidays are over and it's time to remove the special Holiday Design Paul Shipper drew for us. You can still view this design when you go to the Weekly Adventures Section.
I have also updated the French Comic Books page with new images of the French comics plus scanned 2 pages of each comic book, to show how the art looks like.


Raiders of the Lost Drafts, final Chapter!
Tuesday, January 16, 2001 - Gilles V

I have some good and bad news. The good news is that Bellosh has finished chapter 5 of his Raiders of the Lost Drafts pulp essay. And the bad news is that this is the final chapter. But maybe Bellosh will make a 6th chapter when Indy 4 has been released, in a few years.
This chapter is again very well written!! It's about an other canceled Indy 4 script, Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men from Mars and some educated guesses about Indy 4. Start reading by clicking here.


Tomb Raiders: the idea of the Adventurer
Sunday, February 11, 2001 - Gilles V

Unfortunately Bellosh has finished the last chapter of his fantastic Raiders of the Lost Drafts pulp essay last month. I started looking for new essays and other weekly stuff, and last week I have received something.

Michael French has send me an essay named Tomb Raiders and it might contain the answer on the Indiana Jones vs. Lara Croft question. But it also tells us something about the adventure heroes from past 20th century. I hope you will enjoy this analysis and comparison of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft as much as I have.

We are also working on new material, like Indy Toons that is already online, and you may expect to see the long awaited Indy's Influences, Adventure Outpost, Indy Games, and Archaeology sections to be online soon.

The first Indyfan short film Indiana Jones and the Hidden Treasure will also come online soon. Hopefully before 2002 plus some more Fan Films news!
