I have bough the comics and It was really fast to read. I can't tell much about the comics without spoil on the artistic side the face of Lara is hilarious trust me there's lot for future TR memes

We can see her shoot three arrow at the time wich is cool.

On the story side :

The beggining of this arc is also the end,by the read Lara say she's followed Trinity to Thailand and she killed them all before she arrive at Cinque Terres in Italy. She finds a Trinity member who search for The cross of stars and after a confrontation he said : "The man who killed your father is The Cardinal... he's gonna save the world because your father couldn't" and he kill himself. The goal of Lara is etablished she want the end of all Trinity leaving the artifact behind her.



It was good not bad but not great either.

I enjoyed it. Not terrific, but it was the first issue, so building up the story. My only complaint would be when Lara says "I wasn't there for the riddles.
I wasn't there to excavate."
But I guess they have to get on to the action *sigh*.

He feels like the dude who follows you around hoping to date you one day even though its not gonna happen.

I disliked his role in Rise also but he's just as bad in these comics.
You'll see in the part 2

Okay, I've read it and I'll just get to the point: I've said it before, but these issues aren't that long, they only have about 20-22 pages so you'd think they would make the most of them, but no. Nothing significant happens until the last few pages; it's such a waste. We see Lara going through a tomb and then killing some goons up until page 19, with the only "dialogue" being Lara's messages which add nothing to the story. Of course I don't expect Lara to be sitting down talking to someone throughout an entire issue, but still, have something important happen in the middle. Don't leave a cliffhanger to be the only exposition. The writing itself is good, but the structure of it all is bad.

The artwork actually isn't as bad as I initially thought - it grew on me. Sure, there are some panels where Lara looks derpy lol, but I take back my criticism of the style not suiting the reboot universe. It's nothing amazing, but it's by no means bad either - it gets the job done.

Well, that's that. I'm mildly interested where the story is going from the tiny bit of info we got, but there needs to be more of in the next issue.

One more thing: the cover artwork, apart from the outfit, there's not much story context to get from it, so how sure are we that all the covers are not hints for Shadow? I mean, sure, she goes down into an underground tomb/temple thing, but she never wears that outfit, so I'm thinking maybe these covers are actually art based on Shadow. It happened before with previous arcs, so it's possible.

I just read the comic, she’s not depending on him at all. I don’t get where you got any of this from. The only thing she did was call him and told him she was doing this alone. What’s wrong with that? He’s not even in the comic lol.

Tancha why post the whole entire comic up for free?

I've had another look and one of the Trinity guys has one which Lara snatches when he drops it during the fight.
