    Comics Bulletin - Matthew McLean Sep 18, 2008

    However, perhaps best of all, Tomb of the Gods really isn't a movie adaptation at all. It's an original adventure that has been crafted into a fine comic book from the movie material, with distinct serial chapters, complete with cliffhanger endings. And that's really what we're looking for, isn't it? Read Full Review

    Tomb of the Gods isn't bad, it just isn't as good as it should be. Though the plot works well enough, they are far too entrenched in past ideas. This series should be exploring new ground and open new doors, not using old sequences from the films to recapture lost magic. The series is almost to the point where I'd be pleased despite the dull, generic art. I guess I should be thankful it's better than the last movie (and its comic book adaptation) though. That's one experience I'm definitely not eager to visit again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Ben Berger Sep 24, 2008

    Adapting a license like Indiana Jones to me, should simply be a "go big or go home" mentality. The story's pacing is slow and it's plot feels unpolished. We don't know anything about this key, or it's origin, or what it protects. Not enough questions are introduced to get you interested. As a result, it leaves the title to be too bland, or generic for such an action-packed franchise. Things might pick up, and the book might have a great climax in the end, but I wouldn't hold my breath after two clunky issues. I'd say, wait for the trade. Read Full Review
