Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise is about to explode onto the big screen with Alicia Vikander playing the leading role in the upcoming Tomb Raider film. Not only will Lara return to the big screen, but she will also be getting a brand new comic book miniseries from Dark Horse Comics and Crystal Dynamics
Dark Horse has tapped Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly to join veteran Tomb Raider artist Phillip Sevy for Tomb Raider: Inferno. Lanzing and Kelly have worked on multiple projects in the past including Gotham City Garage, Joyride, Hacktivist, and Grayson.
The story will see Lara continue her quest to uncover the secrets of the criminal organization known as Trinity. She’ll even go to the ends of the earth in order to stop them. However, Trinity has a new commander and is well prepared to deal with any surprises Lara Croft may throw at them. This is a side of Trinity, Lara has never seen before. Will she be able to stop them? As you can see below, Lanzing says Lara will enter the “world’s oldest, strangest tomb on a mission to burn Trinity to the ground.”
This new series continues the story from the Rise of the Tomb Raider games from Crystal Dynamics. Dark Horse describes it as a “perfect jumping-on point for new readers.”
The new series will feature covers by Hannah Templer who also provided covers for Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade. Both artist Phillip Sevy and writer Jackson Lanzing confirmed.
And the series will have FANTASTIC covers by @HannahTempler – who has been doing all the covers on Tomb Raider: Survivor's Crusade right now.
