Comic-Con: New Tomb Raider Comic Series Coming

Dark Horse announced this afternoon that come February of 2014, they’ll be publishing an ongoing Tomb Raider comic book series from legendary writer Gail Simone! In an interview with Kotaku, Simone spilled some details on the new series and how it relates to the recently released prequel video game.

“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.”

“The way I see Lara now is, she’s not after treasure. She’s not really after thrills. She’s a questioner, she’s an explorer. She wants answers. The thing is, she’s completely unstoppable. That’s what I love. Everyone underestimates her, and that is a terrible mistake to make.”

No word on who will be prodividing the pencils for the series, but it is set to be released February 26, 2014. What do you think of this announcement?
