Tomb Raider comic to set up Lara Croft’s next game
The rebooted Lara Croft will continue her adventures in an upcoming Dark Horse comic series that will set up the next game.
The comic’s writer Gail Simone told Kotaku that the series, set to launch in 2014, will follow Croft after the events of Square Enix’s latest game.
Simone created DC’s Birds of Prey, and has worked on Secret Six, Deadpool, and Wonder Woman.
Simone said she spoke with Tomb Raider’s Lead Writer Rhianna Pratchett and the two are now friends.
“The storytelling in the game hooked me instantly,” Simone said.
She described the direction the comic will go compared to the game: “The biggest difference is, the game told a claustrophobic story in an isolated setting. We are going globetrotting.”
