Upcoming comic expands on Tomb Raider reboot’s story.
For those who enjoyed the reboot of Tomb Raider and have been disappointed that Square has yet to release anything else further exploring the new Lara’s story, Dark Horse Comics is here to answer your hopes.
This new series will be released on February 26, 2014, and will show what happens after the game’s reboot. The story will be written by Gail Simone, who’s written (widely considered stellar) parts for Wonder Woman, Deadpool, and Batgirl.
During the interview, Simone was asked when this new storyline would take place, in regards to the game, specifically if it’d still be a fresh Lara who’s still new to these adventures. She answered, ” Very much so, we start just a few weeks after the end of the game, and this is all in continuity, it will be Tomb Raider canon, and lead DIRECTLY into the sequel. This is what got me excited; we get to be part of Lara Croft history.”
Does this mean that Simone has just confirmed a sequel to the game is in the works?
