I'm so ****ing happy right now, this is literally all I wanted from this year. I feel like that cover could've been designed better, tbh the panels on the side are kinda ugo? But I'm still stoked for this.

Nice. I missed the chance to get the original comics, didn't even know of their existence until recently. Could be worth a look.

Awesome I hoped this would happen! I also missed out on the classic comics so I'm excited! Hopefully they won't be too pricey though!

Awesome! But where is #25 and crossovers with Witchblade, Fathom and Darkness? Without them it won't be complete edition...

#25 was a three-part crossover spanning Tomb Raider #25, Witchblade #60, and a one-shot combination comic called Evo One. The story is called Endgame. Info here! So we won't be missing out on any of the Lara-exclusive stories, but the Witchblade/Tomb Raider crossovers will probably have to be sought out unless Sara Pezzini's creators can work something out with Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix. Even then, I bet the crossovers and the Endgame story would be in a separate archive.

My thoughts on this are that I'm super excited, ever since I got into TR I've wanted to read up the Top Cow comics and here I'm presented an updated, less costly presentation. This has been a great 20th anniversary.

I know about this But TR Compendium published in 2006 included #25, so I don't understand why TR Archive won't. I have to wait for explanation from Crystals. I hope that there will be some Witchblade archive with TR #25, because without this issue the TR comic series is not complete.

Definitely looking forward to this!
I got into the comic hype too late in the game,
this will be a chance to finally finish what got started.
