    SUMMARYTomb Raider #8 is a solid continuation for the new story arc with the mystery behind Kaz being targeted by a ruthless organization deepening with enough hints to keep it intriguing. I'm enjoying Lara's assertiveness being back and I'm still excited about the potential in this story arc and her involvement with Kaz and the organization. And the artwork is impressive, and the deliberate pace of this issue benefits from that. I would like to see at some point every flashback not being related to the ship or island but overall it worked here. So I'm looking forward to seeing Lara in action next issue and what unfolds.

    I'm just happy I don't hate an issue of Tomb Raider for once. I want more issues like this, that stay away from the Solarii, but have enough ties to the Tomb Raider game reboot to flow well. I sincerely hope the writers and artists can keep it going at this pace. Read Full Review

    This is a good follow-up to last month's issue and I'm looking forward to learning the identity and purpose of the villain who is hunting both Sarah and Kaz. Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider continues on with this arc but what kept me interested in this issue is different than I expected. I rather liked the lighter toned flashback at the start and a feeling of getting the characters a bit more (though a few more names being tossed about would be welcome at times). I also liked Lara's narration when she was alone or dealing with the deer she temporarily befriended while moving through the ghost city. But what I really liked was the exploration of the city itself in its reclaimed glory as nature has been taking it back. It's well illustrated and has a stillness to it that definitely works well to provide the right kind of atmosphere to make it work. The book has its moments, but I'm still not invested in the arc itself outside of its very basic premise with Lara trying to find Kaz. Where it goes from here could be interesting, but I'm a bit wary. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 24, 2014

    Tomb Raider #8 is another strong outing that maintains the level of quality it needs to while inching just slightly forward. For dedicated fans looking for a way to keep their video game fire burning, this is absolutely a worthwhile way to spend $3.50 a month. As this handily comes recommended. Read Full Review
