'Tomb Raider' Comic Connects Recent Reboot with Upcoming Sequel


In addition to the just announced Assassin's Creed graphic novel, a brand new comic based upon "Tomb Raider" was also unveiled at San Diego Comic Con by publisher Dark Horse Comics.

Due in early 2014, it's being brought to you in part by Gail Simone, one of the biggest comic scribes in the business today. Kotaku recently spoke with her about her upcoming book and much is revealed. Including how she's a fairly hardcore gamer; her collection includes a mint condition Vectrex.

Though she also reveals that the comic will act a bridge between the just released game, and the one that's coming up next:

"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."

Furthermore, it's somewhat implied that the book will contain a few elements from the original series of games that were done away with when the franchise was rebooted. While Laura Croft won't be canvasing the world for treasure like before, she'll still be traveling the word, this time in search for answers.

The interview is a quick and easy but great read, and even notes how Simone is also working on a mini series starring Red Sonja with Rhianna Pratchett, who wrote the new "Tomb Raider" game.
