    Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen #1 is a well done comic. It has excellent artwork and the writing is exciting with a good flow. This is a comic that introduces the character of Lara Croft skillfully, and even a brand new fans will have no difficulty jumping into the story. Read Full Review

    Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen #1 did exactly what it needed to, and that was bring an outdated version of an iconic character to life in a way that is both engaging and befitting the franchise as a whole. It also manages to leave us intrigued as we head into the next issue, as we can't wait to get our hands on more of this gripping tale. So be sure to pick this up at your local comic book store come October 7. Read Full Review

    This is a good first issue with an element of mystery in the storyline, Bechko does a good job of keeping suspense and leave you hanging for more.Green and Owens' art does compliment the storyline and the light colours give life to the comic. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's nice to see the continuing adventures of Lara Croft. I don't think it holds up to playing the game, but that's a translation that often gets lost when converting any title from a different medium into a comic book. If you love you some Lara Croft, then be sure to grab this issue. For others wanting to try it, this is a good issue to start with, as you don't really need to know any of the backstory outside of who Lara Croft is and what she does. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 23, 2015

    It's hard to say how this arc is going to go simply because we know so little, but Lara is Lara and that's the big takeaway here at the start. Having liked the previous series and wanting more, this feels like a decent progression overall and fans should find it mostly easy to change from one book to the other. Read Full Review

    This series needs to develop a much stronger hook in issue #2. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Oct 7, 2015

    Let's not mince words here, there's basically no reason to buy Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen. As a stand-alone story outside the Tomb Raider connection is a dull, underwritten adventure story that you've seen overdone well before now. It adds nothing to the Tomb Raider mythos and in fact only serves to subtract from the character of Lara Croft, it's going backwards more than anything else. Worst of all, if you're just really desperate for more Tomb Raider there's a new game coming out in just 1 month, save your money and buy that instead. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 23, 2015

    Again, I like the concept of this series, but I don't particularly like this series. It's way below average and it gives you the impression that no one really cared about the story. They just piecemealed a story together and got an artist that could make Lara look hot and hoped that that was enough. The problem is this isn't a video game and having a mediocre story with good art isn't worth the effort or time. With a video game you get to at least move the character around and shoot shit, but here" Lara doesn't even shoot shit. If you like really safe and watered-down stories then you may like this one, but if you're here for some old Lara kicking butt and going on adventures… then lower that expectation and broaden your definition of "adventure."

    Big Comic Page - David Gladman Oct 6, 2015

    That aside, I would avoid this book unless you are a Tomb Raider collector and need it for the sake of completion. Even then, don't bother opening it and hope that this particular creative team get enough sold to allow them to work on their ‘real' idea. Read Full Review
