The classic Lara is back! While working at the British Museum, a priceless artifact seems to have vanished into thin air. The search for the item leads her to Belize, a dazed and confused co-worker, and possibly… the devil? This isn’t like her usual fun cases; it appear she may be up against the supernatural.
Lots of things happening in the first issue; not sure yet how each story ties together. We open with Lara helping out a friend who’s a newly trained Falconry Expert, then to the missing item at the British Museum, then to being attacked in Belize. I know that in later issues it’s sure to tie together, but the first instinct is why even put the Falconry Expert? But then, all Lara Croft stories start with excitement and adventure.
The art is good; very detailed with corresponding, lifelike colors: nothing to flashy, just enough that it draws you into the comic. Lara is in her traditional outfit, well drawn and detailed, right to the thigh gun holsters. I guess I’m going to keep reading this storyline – just like all other things Lara Croft – I need to know how they all tie in together!
