Crystal Dynamics and Dark Horse Comics have partnered to bring Lara Croft back to the comic universe. The series will be available after the newest Tomb Raider game is released March 5th. To celebrate, Crystal and Dark Horse have created “Tomb Raider: The Beginning.” This is the first issue in the new comic book series and is set before the events of Tomb Raider. If you pre-order Tomb Raider at Best Buy, you can get your hands on the first issue early. “The Beginning” follows how the team came together for the Endurance's mission to find the lost Japanese kingdom of Yamatai.
“The team at Crystal Dynamics has worked closely with Dark Horse on ‘The Beginning’ to bring the relatable, re-imagined Lara Croft back to the comic book world,” said Karl Stewart, global brand director for TOMB RAIDER and Crystal Dynamics.
"Whilst penning Lara’s origins story for the game I had lots of ideas about the world she and the other characters inhabited, and the story behind their voyage: it was great to be able to flesh out the world of TOMB RAIDER and work with the talented team at Dark Horse to bring Lara Croft back to comics,” said Rhianna Pratchett, lead game writer for TOMB RAIDER.
"The bold new vision of the game demanded we bring an equally fresh approach to the comics," said Dave Marshall, editor at Dark Horse. “We’re excited for TOMB RAIDER fans to experience a new side of Lara Croft as they accompany her on the earliest parts of her first adventure.”
