Comics luminary Gail Simone is working on a new Tomb Raider comics series that’ll be published by Dark Horse.
The first comic in the series will be released on February 26th, 2013. It will take place a few weeks after the end of Tomb Raider (2013) reboot and it may lead into the game’s sequel.
"In continuity, it will be Tomb Raider canon, and lead DIRECTLY into the sequel," confirmed Simone. "This is what got me excited; we get to be part of Lara Croft history."
According to the comic book writer, "The biggest difference [from the game’s story telling] is, the game told a claustrophobic story in an isolated setting. We are going globetrotting."
Gail Simone is known for authoring some of the most well received runs of Wonder Woman, Deadpool and Batgirl.
