[ July 19th 2004 ]

Top Cow 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.

"Once 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.

Crystal 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.
