Comic Review: Tomb Raider #2 – Out of the Frying Pan

(If anyone makes any jokes about my title and women needing to get back to kitchens, they shall be summarily shot with double pistols and tossed into the Grand Canyon.)

Tomb Raider #2, written by Gail Simone, continues where Tomb Raider #1 left off, in the middle of a desert misbehaving. The slight creepiness of circumstances (and characters) echoes the creepy moments in the game, and I’m really enjoying the pacing. I’m also selfishly happy about one character’s fate, although I do hope that doesn’t become a trend!


If anything, issue 2 has me even more intrigued with the plot and mystery surrounding the crazy events happening to Lara and her old team, as a few new players step in and begin raising the stakes.

All-in-all, I have no complaints; Tomb Raider #2 is full of action, and I can’t wait to read issue 3!


“Lara Croft and her friends are experiencing horrific visions in the aftermath of their ordeal in the lost kingdom of Yamatai. But those visions herald a darker fate than they could have imagined!”
