Any work on Dark Horse being at SDCC (san diego comic con)? Because that would be the best time to announce a new series for Tomb Raider and the Lara Croft series.

Assuming we get comics when the next game releases, I really really really hope Philip Sevy returns.

Oh definitely. And at least on Instagram the does seem to very much enjoy drawing Lara, and always said he had a great time drawing the comics.

Beside, his work on Inferno, especially issues 2 and 3 was top notch.

When (not "if", when) the comics return, I really want him to return. He has become to the reboot comics what Andy Park was for the Top Cow comics imo. Hell, I'd bring the whole creative team from Inferno back, really. Also loved the writing from Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly. They made the terrible art from Survivor's Crusade bearable.

Speaking of which, I came across these sketches from Ashley A Woods for Lara in "Survivor's Crusade", and while I still prefer Tomb Raider comics to have a more realistic art, this is so much better than what we actually got!



Seriously, what the hell happened here? I'm starting to feel, with these sketches and her online portfolio, that Woods is perhaps a better cover artist. She probably can't handle a full comic's schedule.

Woods is actually a VERY talented artist if you look at her work on her Twitter page. Her artwork on Niobe: She is Life was nothing short of gorgeous. A few pages in Survivor's Crusade also looked REALLY good.

I get the feeling that with Survivor's Crusade, Ashley really phoned it in. It's like she only drew rough drafts without polishing them.

I know. Especially by her portfolio, you can see she as a thing for drawing attractive powerful women. In paper she would be perfect for Tomb Raider.

But see also the release dates for each of the Niobe issues. Issues 1 and 2 are really far apart, and issues 3 and for are a whole year apart. The only issues that have a "normal" release schedule are issues 2 and 3, which I suspect that they were either the same issue that got too long and were divided in two, or were worked at the same time.

This is why I think she might be a better cover artist, or maybe for graphic novels: her work is gorgeous but only when she doesn't have to do too much in a short time. She definitely is not suited for full, monthly issues, and her work on Tomb Raider shows that.

The Omnibus Vol 2 is listed on Amazon and will be the last of the series (until the next game I suppose) for the price of 28 euros. Nothing as been told about a Library Vol 2.

The release is schedule for January 14th 2020

What's the difference between the omnibus and the library edition?

They're more or less the same. In comics, an Omnibus collects a bunch of volumes.

In this case they are the same content wise. However, the Omnibus is a soft-cover version, so it is cheaper, but more prone to damage.

Good news, it just means library edition vol.2 but with a soft cover instead.
I just don't know why they completely replaced the library edition format with this new one; nevermind it will just mean that I will have a library edition and an omnibus volume.

Is the omnibus edition the same size as the library edition?
If it is, considering the 500 glossy pages (they have a considerable weight) I can imagine it is really fragile, I bet the cover gets folded really easily...
