Tomb Raider was a reboot of the series that debuted to plenty of acclaim and praise. And rightfully so, as the new game took the character back to her roots and built a sound game around her. Of course, there's another game due out this year called Rise of the Tomb Raider, prompting Square Enix to team up with Dark Horse for a new comic called Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen. Written by Corinna Bechko and illustrated by Randy Green, Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen hits stores October as the first issue of a five-issue miniseries.
“Lara is incredibly fun to write,” Bechko told Polygon. “She doesn’t suffer fools, she’s smart, and she’s talented. She’s always ready for action, but she’s not afraid to think through a problem either. And she doesn’t ever wait around for someone else to save her. There’s a lot of satisfaction in writing a character like that.”
In this all-new adventure, Lara must stop a group of cultists from causing world-wide cataclysmic devastation, and ancient ivory artifacts hold the key to both salvation and destruction! It’s a race against time in Lara’s new quest, filled with incredible action, dual pistols, and non-stop adventure.
“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Dark Horse on a new Lara Croft comic,” said Rich Briggs, Brand Director at Crystal Dynamics. “This globe-trotting series is filled with the dual gun-wielding action and confident flair that nostalgic Lara Croft fans will love. It’s a great companion to the existing Tomb Raider comics, and offers fans another way to go on a high-octane adventure with Lara.”
