You've probably heard, Lara Croft is returning to video game consoles in a new Tomb Raider game, slated for a March release. Lara has had plenty of comic book adventures at Top Cow but she's making a move to Dark Horse.
Over on the Tomb Raider Facebook page, a preview for the preorder incentive comic being released. Wonder if this could lead to another ongoing series?
You can preorder the game at tombraider.com/preorder. The Facebook page mentions this comic as a "preorder incentive at participating retailers." It appears that the comic is available only if you preorder at Best Buy (you have your choice of exclusive items from different retailers).
The comic is written by Rhianna Pratchett, who is the lead game writer. It will be a 48-page hardcover. No word if this will ever be available separately.
A 48-page, six-part hardcover omnibus, “TOMB RAIDER: The Beginning” follows the story of how the crew came together for The Endurance's fateful mission to discover the lost Japanese kingdom of Yamatai. Originally intended to feature as the latest instalment of Dr. James Whitman's successful archaeology show, Whitman's World, the show-biz archaeologist gets more than he bargained for when he enlists the help of Captain Conrad Roth. As Roth's unique and eccentric crew gradually come together and share their stories and secrets, the expedition faces unexpected threats before it's even begun.
More news on Tomb Raider comics will be available in the coming months.
