[ July 19th 2004 ]
Productions, in conjunction with Eidos, Ltd, is
announcing that the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider comic
book will wind down its first volume and relaunch
in conjunction with the release of the 7th Tomb
Raider video game in the summer of 2005. Top Cow
is participating in the re-design of the new game.
Top Cow plans to end the 1st volume with issue
#50, written by Dan Slott (JLA, She-Hulk), shipping
to comic book stores in January.
we spoke with Eidos and realized they were changing
Lara Croft up quite a bit it seemed a prudent
course to wrap up what we’re doing now and prepare
for the newer version sometime late next year"
says Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. Once Tomb
Raider #50 has shipped, Top Cow still plans to
release various Tomb Raider specials and one-shots
before Volume 2 starts up again with the redesigned
character. Top Cow will continue to produce new
trade paperbacks of existing storylines and keep
the issues in print.
Dynamics will produce the new Tomb Raider adventure
after Eidos awarded the franchise to the Californian
based studio in 2003 following problems with former
creator's Core Design.
