    A good set up for a potentially thrilling story. It's a solid read but some questions linger. The main question: Is it worth risking life and limb to prevent the Knighthood from gaining the spores? Plus what is the significance of Robert cutting his hand? Was he infected by the spores and if so is he now immortal?Hopefully those questions will be answered in the next issue. By the end of Tomb Raider #5we go back to 1996 again and it is revealed that Professor Green was looking for Robert. But we still don't know why. Lara has to try to save the professor from the Knighthood and she reveals to them that the one they're looking for doesn't have the spores, she does. Will Lara keep the spores from the Knighthood or die trying? To be continued. Read Full Review

    I still haven't connected with this story and know that I won't at this stage, so I'm reading for Lara herself and waiting to see what adventure is next. A lot of the appeal for me is what happens between the adventures and I'm curious to see what the fallout from this one is and what happens before the next adventure gets underway. The story concept in this arc isn't doing much for me but Tamaki has put together two issues of good action sequences that lets Sevy really shine and run with the book and making it interesting on a basic level. I just wish that the story felt cemented and grounded well, and interesting, so that I could enjoy Sevy's presentation even more. Read Full Review
