I love Lara Croft. I’m not a big gamer but I thought she kicked ass. She was Indiana Jones with breasts. Yes, she was drawn for the fanboys but so what? She was still badass, intelligent and bold. I wanted to be her. The Tomb Raider movies were far from great but I liked them, well the first one anyway. Angelina, even with the uneven British accent, captured her adventurous and independent spirit. A new day is dawning for Lara though. She may finally get the treatment she truly deserves.
On February 26th Dark Horse releases Tomb Raider #1, the continuing adventures of Lara Croft, with the phenomenal Gail Simone writing it. No strong female character can go wrong with Simone at the helm. Just see what she’s doing for Red Sonja in her book (really go see, I’ll wait here). Not to mention her Batgirl and so many others.
Dark Horse seems pretty excited too:
Superstar writer Gail Simone picks up Lara Croft’s story where the smash hit Tomb Raider game left off—in a new ongoing comics series!
Following the game acclaimed for its bold and sophisticated new vision, this series launches Lara Croft on the formative adventures that will change her life forever!
* The official continuation of Lara Croft’s story!
* The 2013 video game sold over 3.5 million copies!
“Tomb Raider is the quintessential example of a reboot done right.”—Gaming Trend
