Tomb Raider #17 may represent my favorite issue yet from this team. Sure if you stop and think about certain elements the whole thing might feel a bit shaky but that doesn't take away from all the good that's done cover to cover. To sum up: if your eager for the next game and you need more adventures to tide you over than this title needs to be on your pull-list. Read Full Review
Tomb Raider has its ups and downs but this issue mostly moves things forward well. When Lara is moving and doing, that's when the book works its best within the arcs. Though I enjoy the standalone pieces with her and her friends and some of the coping with life and its issues, I really like issues like this where she's dealing with what's totally in her wheelhouse. The book gives us plenty of Lara at her best in figuring out how to survive and achieve her goals, but it also fills us in on Grim in a way that really humanizes him and makes him accessible in a very short order, which is good. While his uncertainty may get to be a bit much since he says it so often, it's something that feels right for him and his personality, and something for Lara to deal with that she usually doesn't. A lot of good fun all around with a cliffhanger that leaves you hoping for more reveals the next time around. Read Full Review
I'm not really sure how they are gonna wrap up everything neatly to be shuffled into the next game. Will the next issue relegate this series to the non-canon half of my brain, or will it become the connective tissue that makes me feel more in the know? Read Full Review
