Lara's adventure continues today

The day has arrived. Almost a full year since the 2013 Tomb Raider video game reboot was released. Now newbie archaeologist Lara Croft's story officially continues in comic book form, written by Gail Simone and pencilled by Nicolás Daniel Selma.

You can read my previous posts on the comic here and here. In essence, however, the new Dark Horse series will bridge the gap between last year's game and its announced, but otherwise top secret, sequel.

As the comic kicks off, the survivors of Yamatai are struggling with post traumatic stress. Lara, in addition, is plagued by guilt over her responsibility for so many deaths. However, it looks like Croft and co. won't be able to leave behind what happened on the island, no matter how much they want to.

Check out the first 6 pages of the 32-page debut issue below, and don't forget to read Simone's latest interview on the comic. Important take-homes from that interview are A) the implication that yep, writer Rhianna Pratchett is working on the video game sequel (well, duh), and B) we'll get to see Lara drinking a Guinness in an upcoming issue. the printed page. Cheers!

Now, I'm off to try and find a digital copy of the comic...

P.S. Here's the cover for issue #5, with art by Tomb Raider senior art director Brian Horton
