Nice interview, and while it seems Mariko is perhaps using Lara's friends a bit to the "Save me!" route (which we all don't like), it seems that she knows Lara is supposed to be tomb raiding across the globe, kicking ass and not swearing a lot, which is good.

While the comic's start wasn't that great, the story kept improving from arc to arc, and I hope Mariko keeps that quality-growing trend. I also hope the art gets an upgrade (or a better inker, since Santacruz pencils were actually great).

Well if she didn't, she'd be retarded
The title is TOMB RAIDER afterall, not Friend Rescuer. Wish someone would have told that to Gail and Riahnna.

I'm soooo ready about how bad and cringeworthy these comics are gonna be.

The TR comics must have done really well on the market since they are bringing them back. I'm glad people enjoy reading Lara's adventures .

I'm guessing these comics will lead into the third game and last until a few months before the release of TR3

Well, since the comics are canon, Gail and Rhi were constrained by the "Rise is going to be Lara's first Raiding expedition" fact. Fortunately Nariko won't. (Although it still doesn't excuse Gail for that ridiculous 1st arc)

Ikr! I still refuse to believe that she was the one who wrote it. I guess CD were who restricted her from an artistic standpoint, shortening the possibilities to Lara saving Sam again, but the whole thing was atrocious.

Still, the 2nd and 3rd act were also "Rescue Raider" in a sense, but way more interesting. At least, Kaz and Grim's brother didn't seem completely helpless (in fact, they actively participated in their own rescues), both arcs had interesting (and hopefully, in the case of the serpent queen, recurring) villains, and didn't have a "protagonist is the key to some magical mumbo jumbo" twist.

I don't read TR comics.
Still sucks that they feel the need to shoehorn Lara's problematic friends into them and base her motivations on that.
Nobody cares about her friends (Jonah's cool, though).

Well, I was one of those people buying the new comics... but now, out of a combination of anger, and the comics continuing the story after RotTR; I wont be buying them this time around... How many more people out there feel the exact same way? Probably a lot...
