Boy, you guys are deluding yourselves! Very few of the Marvel Comics are any good at all (most of the ones you mentioned can be described as decent at best). "Xomec's Raiders"? Ugggh! Do you really believe Toht had a sister? And if he did, would it really be the one from this comic? Uh-huh! Toht is the kind of creep who would have sold his sister for fun! There were just a few good issues I can think of off-hand: the number six issue about the nightclub and gangsters, I liked the one with the gangsters hiding in the mountain while Indy takes his class up there, and then probably the one about Indy and Marion trapped in the house with the madman.
The Stonehenge story is one of the better ones, but that's nto saying much. The ending is a Raiders-rip-off that has no real-world mythology connected to Stonehenge whatsoever.
The Search for Abner? Puh-leeze! A green orb lands in the himalayas and evolves into an entire city? 'The Man In the Iron Mask' as Marion's father? Oh and of course, NAZI's have to appear for no reason whatsoever to bring the city crumbling down. Yuck!! RL Stine's "IJ and the Giants of the Silver Tower" had mroe credibility than this story!
