The lights are on
Lara Croft is no stranger to comics, having had a run of 51 issues released by Top Cow comics from 1999 to 2005. Now, Square Enix's adventure heroine will star in a new comic that's being released in conjunction with the upcoming reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise.
Entitled Tomb Raider: The Beginning, the graphic novel will set up the events that transpire in the game. Apparently, prior to the game, Lara is involved with an archeological-themed television show. We're pretty sure that nothing will go tragically wrong during the taping of the show. The comic will be free to those who preorder the game at Best Buy; no word on whether it will be available at retail.
The comic book is penned by Rhianna Pratchett, who also wrote the script for the new game. Dark Horse is publishing the book.

Hopefully this will give some insight into the persona of new Lara. I am looking forward to this
I would really hope that they would make it available to those who don't pre-order from Best Buy. If they don't, then that's really stupid.
I actually have all the TR comics. Great read by the way with some gorgeous artwork. Its one of the few times Lara Croft actually has a fleshed out personality. The comics got me to to love Lara as a character.The newer games(Legend and Underworld) also made me like her as person. Forget it on the old games. All she was back then was a kick butt kinda merciless hard as nails gargantum boobed archaeologist chick. Personally I have throughly enjoyed all the games,movies,and comics TR has been in. Can't wait for the new Tomb Raider game. Hope the comic is good and goes to retail.
These comics are rarely good. How much money do they even make?
yo dog heard you like prequels
I'm pretty sure this will be available at retail too. Maybe with a different cover. No way they'd keep it as a preorder thing only.
More like; Tomb Raider: The Beginning to the Beginning.
While I like this kind of ideas, I never can bring myself to buying the books, comics, or videos that expand the universe of games I play.
Awesome. I'd love to be able to read it someday!
Between this and the Aviatrix jacket, I am set.
Interesting.... I wonder if its any good.
