We’ve got an inside look at the first few pages of the third issue of Dark Horse Comics’ Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen. Click on through to check out the original Lara in action!
Lara and Carter are trapped in an airfield where the only way out is through a hail of bullets! Can they survive this race against time to gather ancient artifacts and keep them away from cultists who would use these treasures to destroy everything?
With this issue hitting comic shops and digital download storefronts next month, Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen continues the saga of the original Tomb Raider. You know the one; short-shorts, tank top… the version of the character that was tough as nails and basically a tomb-raiding superhero? Yeah, that’s the gal.
In any event, she’s back in a big way with this series, which has so far seen Lara taking the fight to a group of cultists that have plans on not world-domination, but on creating a global cataclysm that would devastate the human race. The key to turning back the tide of destruction lies within a set of artifacts that Lara must retrieve, and she’s working with former rival Carter Bell to get them.
As you can probably tell from all that, there’s tons of stuff in here that longtime Tomb Raider should eat right up, not the least of which is the fact that we’re seeing Lara’s original incarnation in action for the first time in a while. Not that there’s anything wrong with the current TR games (or comics for that matter), but they present a very different Ms. Croft, and it’s pretty freaking cool to see a return to the original status quo, no matter how brief it may be.
Issue #3 of Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen hits the stands on December 2nd, from the talented team of Corinna Bechko and Carmen Carnero. Check out the exclusive preview pages below for an early peek at what to expect.
