Tomb Raider’s Reboot Continues In Comic Form Feb 26th With Dark Horse

As was revealed back at San Diego Comic Con 2013, the first issue of the new Tomb Raider comic series written by critically acclaimed writer Gail Simone [Birds Of Prey] is finally hitting shelves on February 26th.

For Tomb Raider #1 Nicolás Daniel Selma, Juan Gedeon and Michael Atiyeh manage interior art duties whilst Dan Dos Santos is responsible for the cover.
