Indiana Jones: The Dance of Death was an unpublished comic series from Dark Horse Comics.

The comic's story was set in 1940. Indiana Jones was to go to an island in the Indian Ocean, where the native worshippers had become ill with an outbreak of plague. Indy eventually discovers that the source of the plague is actually the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, who is releasing his evils upon the world. Ultimately, Indy fights off zombies and escapes an earthquake which hits the area, and ends the Horseman's threat once and for all.[1]

The checklist for upcoming issues in the ninth book of Dark Horse International's UK Star Wars comic, which reprinted Indiana Jones stories as a backup feature, promoted the then upcoming issue 10 with the archaeologist taking on "the mystery of 'The Dance Of Death'." However, the final issue, relased in June 1993, printed the first part of Thunder in the Orient instead.[2]

Although The Dance of Death ultimately went unpublished, the story's events were referenced in 1994's The World of Indiana Jones which arranged many Indiana Jones works into a timeline by order of in-universe chronology.[1]
