Lara Croft Returns in Dark Horse’s Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade

Dark Horse has and Crystal Dynamics have announced the latest instalment into the Tomb Raider comic universe, Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade.

While we’re waiting with bated breath for Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics to announce Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Dark Horse has our back with a brand new comic to keep our tomb raiding itch nicely scratched.

Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade brings a whole new creative team to the series with Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (Joyride, Hacktivist) penning Lara’s new adventure, Ashley A. Woods (Ladycastle, Niobe) drawing the artwork, and finally Michael Atiyeh (Conan the Slayer, Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) giving it some colour.

In addition, Hannah Fisher (Cosmoknights) has created the cover for the first issue which you can see in full above.

Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade will see Lara Croft pushing the limits of her training as she unravels the mystery behind her father’s death, but there seems to be more questions than answers in this series, but Lara will stop at nothing to find them.

Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade’s first issue (of four) goes on sale November 22, 2017.

    I hope Sam return in this final arc or, at the very least, her return is hinted at. Ignoring the whole shipping thing thanks to the comics Sam is just a great character who is every bit as awesome as Lara. And for those of you saying that she gets captured to often or that Lara working alone makes her unique among video game characters.

    On the who Jonah has been captured as often as Sam and between the two Sam has actually managed to save herself without Lara's help on at least two occasions while Jonah always needs to be rescued, (though he did save Lara on one occasion so he's not useless). And as for the latter there are literally hundreds of video game characters that work alone. Link, The Prince of Persia, Aloy, Kronos, Wander and even more that I'm not even going to bother to least, just google video game heroes that work alone and see just how many there are.

    And as shown in the comics Lara is at her most relatable when she's with Sam, something the writers of the series seem pretty keen on reminding us whenever they get the chance. I'm not even kidding every writer of the reboot series have stated that they think Sam is awesome and that she helps flesh Lara out as a character and that they think she is pretty awesome and will use any excuse they can to bring her into the story.
