Read full description of the books Tomb Raider #1: Survivor's Guilt:Reviewed at Women Write About Comics
Putting Gail Simone on book with a female character of questionable purpose is usually a promise that she’ll turn that character into more than just the sum of her well-endowed parts. In this case, it’s Lara Croft—the adventurer who’s recently undergone a significant video game reboot—whom Simone has taken back to show us how Lara got to be the confident, kick-ass woman that Angelina Jolie got to play in the movies.
It isn’t entirely necessary to play the new game to get started on this comic, but you should know the basics. Lara survived a shipwreck and a dangerous island adventure that taught her a lot of things, not the least of which was learning to kill. Back home now, Lara suffers nightmares and other symptoms of PTSD, as do the few friends who made it out alive with her. Simone doesn’t pull punches on how badly they are all affected, but Laura still has her wits about her and is now determined to take care of her friends, including Jonah, whom she finds babbling nonsense in his desert trailer. Things suddenly turn upside down with the introduction of a strange artifact that clearly means trouble for Lara.
I was already intrigued when it was announced that Simone would be writing the comic, and I am not the least bit disappointed. This is a Lara I want to know more about, and the mystery has already piqued my interest. 3.5 stars.
