When I played this game I thought Lara was a merciless serial killer. Anyone else feel the same?

The art is kinda meh but I am looking forward to this as I loved the story in the rebooted game, can't wait to see how the rest of her story goes.

@jonny_anonymous: I have! But the developers put so much effort into making her seem like this "Scared, frightened" individual that when she started killing dudes with zero remorse (guys who just wanted to get off the island I might add) she seemed kinda psycho! Also she pointed a gun at an innocent pilot's head and threatened to shoot him for the crime of wanting to stay alive! She could have at least buried the poor guy!

People do desperate things when trying to survive. I wouldn't have been bothered about hurting that pilots feelings either

plus all but like 5 people on the island wanted her dead and wanted to sacrifice her best friend...so yeah killing them didn't really bother me in the game

Well, well, well, this looks to be pretty something cool.

I think I might get this.

I love me some Gale Simone but she's not the ONLY lady writer in the industry. She's on EVERYTHING! (which is good until you start to feel saturated)

What about Kathryn Immonen and all the other ones we have?

I got the game recently. Can't wait to play it.

Kelly Sue DeConnick has quite a few books out right now/about to come out. Ann Nocenti's on Catwoman (unfortunately). G Willow Wilson is going to be writing the new Ms. Marvel series. Kathryn Immonen just ended a run on Journey Into Mystery starring Sif (unfortunately, that was an amazing book, wish they would've relaunched it to give it more visibility, though).

It would be awesome to see more ladies writing more books and it's sad that those are the only ones that I can name off the top of my head, but there are ladies writing other things out there.

Love the game. Love Simone. Love comics. I'm gonna need a second job if she picks up anymore titles.

Pshh you're only saying that because she killed a couple hundred people.

Loved the game but not sure if I will like reading a comic about it. Gail Simone is writing it though so that should be good

Still haven't gotten used to her new look

EXACTLY. I would've listed those ladies but my brain was being noodled by a massive headache (and still currently is. I hate doing other people's homework). Thank you for expressing my thoughts better than I could. :)

Looks pretty cool.

The art could be better.

Posted by lykopis

This will be coming out at the end of this month (I found out today since this article didn't specify when) and I will be giving it a try. The art does look great.

Posted by fodigg

The art is a little bright compared to the tone of the game.
