    Visions? What they're having nightmares or something?

    Anyway, good to see another comic will come out, it probably means the next game can't be too far ahead.

    Hmmm. I wonder when the first issue will come out. So, she's still

    waaait. So maybe the cover art is part of her visions? Or is she still on Yamatai?

    ^The first issue is out 26 February. say Dark Horse Comics. I wonder why CD aren't advertising this at all.

    I like that the comics are sort of concentrating on Lara and Cos' lives after Yamatai, that the adventure isn't just forgotten like nothing happened. Eventually, the comics will lead into the next. It's good that there's a continuation from one adventure to the next, even if the next actual adventure is not a direct sequel story wise.

    I WANT THIS SO MUCH! SCREW THE DEF ED, I WANT PAPER AND PICTURES AND WRITING!!!

    On a side note, what do you guys mean 'the first issue'? Isn't 'The Beginning' comic, the first issue?

    EDIT: Having clicked on link you put above, Rai. I can only express... MORE EXCITEMENT!!!!!! XD

    I'm fairly sure The Beginning was a one shot special edition, ie #1 will already pick up where the adventure ended.

    TB was 52 pages long, and the entry page on Dark Horse say issue 1 is 32 page long. They could have broken it down and spread across two issues, but then the synopsis for issue 2 would be way off.

    Wait - forget all that. It's written right there lol: "Superstar writer Gail Simone picks up Lara Croft’s story where the smash hit Tomb Raider game left off—in a new ongoing comics series!"

    Visions? As in hallucinations and stuff? Awesome. Just what wanted from the comic/sequel/later story. *giddy*

    Maybe they consumed the mushrooms found in the level just after Roth died.

    Talking about The Beginning, does anyone know of anywhere where I could get that in the UK other than ebay? The only other place I've seen is Amazon.com.

    I got mine from Amazon.com, Rai.
    It actually wasn't that expensive, delivery was moderately quick and it was wrapped up in a tight blue waterproof sheet to keep it safe.

    ^I wasn't sure they'd deliver to the UK. I'll have to see when I next get paid. I've pre ordered the Feb issue though.

    Tomb Raider comic #2 preorder?

    So.. I found this? It's a link to a site that has the second Tomb Raider comic up for pre order. Hmmmm.......
    http://www.tfaw.com/Comics/Profile/T...er-2___444231/
    Is this real? The synopsis sounds great. <3
    Synopsis: 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!

    PTSD?

    That is the site that Dark Horse Comics are using to sell the comics. I went through them to pre order the first comic, so I assume it is the same for the 2nd. That is the same description Dark Horse are using, so I think it is safe to assume that it is correct. . It gives enough to makes us wonder.

    BTW, just a heads up, but there is already a discussion going on for the comics: Here

    Curse vibes? As is, the crew is cursed by Himiko and causing hallucinations or something?

    Yeah, that's what I meant. Since the synopsis says it's Lara AND her friends experiencing the visions and that these visions "herald a darker fate" makes me think it's not just PTSD and the first thing that popped into my head was CURSE!

    I need to read The Beginning comics fast.

    Then start #1 and continue the comic series.

    I'm throwing money at the screen but nothing happens?
    What if just the stickers are "made in Germany"?
    Deviantart for some TR Renderings... and LaraxSam.

    Putting it like that, I see how you make that assumption now. That certainly sounds plausible

    Ohhh. Thanks. Hmmm, maybe a little, but it mentions visions. Mathias was getting visions/dreams that Himiko sent him (according to him), so I'm thinking it's not necessarily PTSD alone but something more sinister going on.

    This is the vibe I was thinking of too. Sounds interesting. Also kinda sorta fits with Reflecting back.

    Cool. I hope they are cursed. And Lara has to do some before she dies.
