Many people are aware of Lara Croft’s video game resurgence, finding success and praise with both games in the recently rebooted franchise. Earlier this week, Darkhorse announced the sixth arc in the revamped Tomb Raider comic series, titled Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade.
Unlike most continuity regarding comic versions of entertainment, The Dark Horse Comics series takes place in the same timeline as the game and is canon. Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade is no exception to that, as it will pick off right where the events of Rise of the Tomb Raider left off.
After learning from Ana that her father’s apparent suicide was a cover up for his assassination, Lara prepares to search for what caused Trinity to kill her father.
“Lara Croft has unfinished business,” Dark Horse stated in a press release. “After facing Trinity in Siberia [in Rise of the Tomb Raider], she’s driven to unravel the mystery behind her father’s death. After pushing her training to the limit and following clues that lead to more questions than answers, Lara is prepared to put everything on the line to uncover the truth.”
So far, each of the comics has tied up loose threads that took place in the game, also featuring other recurring characters native to the game other than Lara. Throughout the series, Lara, Jonah, and Sam are the only characters to have appeared in every arc, (though Sam only appeared in the Spore arc as visions).
Gamers who found interest in the game’s story and lore will likely love the comics as well, as they feature just as many unique, mystical adventures as the games.
Dark Horse’s Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade #1 will find its way to comic book shelves on Nov. 22, 2017. Be sure to check back to the site for more updates, as well as all of your Nerdy News and Needs!
