    Daniel Selma is back in the artist's saddle for this new arc it seems, with Juan Gedeon on inks, Michael Atiyeh on colours and Michael Heisler on the letters. Derlis Santacruz and Andy Owens proved to be a rather capable team with the last arc, but it great to have the original art team back for the new arc. And the refinements and improvements in their work are pretty clear now. The characters are more expressive for one, and the scenes are much more detailed as well. That's solid progress right there!

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 24, 2014

    I always feel a little conflicted with this series because it's one that I feel like could be so much more, but isn't sure how to be that when aligned with the style of the current game itself. We've seen so many licensed properties become better than the original, or deviate in ways for it to become even more engaging, but this one feels like it's stuck between two worlds and not quite sure what it wants to be. This issue starts up a potentially interesting arc that works more in just the characters themselves and the fallout of the previous arc, which will be good to see if it doesn't include any archaeological expeditions or the like. While that's a necessity for the game, here it should be able to expand things more and we get a taste of that here in a good way. I'm hoping for more of this as it goes on so that we can become more invested in the characters. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Dec 25, 2014

    Tomb Raider #11 is an easy entry to grade because it continues to prove the worth of this reboot. And for that reason, plus a few others, this one comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider #11 is an ok start to a new story arc but the lingering questions from the last one carry over, and aren't explored as Lara prepares for her role in Jonah's play. There were entertaining moments such as Lara getting into action, and Auger being an intriguing character with his own deadly moves. However the story doesn't advance much nor does it have meaningful character development with Lara. And Mr. Cruz's remarkable recoveries just make me feel like his character has been extended for too long. I am still interested in Trinity as an organization so hopefully the developments this issue leads to more answers about them going forward, and Lara can be in more entertaining situations overall.

    The Daily Crate - Keri Honea Dec 17, 2014

    I'm definitely ready to walk across this dirt the writers have shoveled in to connect these two arcs. But why, why do I have a sneaking suspicion that the next step is going to take place on opening night? I suppose they could turn this into an impromptu production of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.Tomb Raider #11 will release on December 24, 2014. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Coleman Jan 7, 2015

    This is an awesome issue minus the missing Jaffa cakes of course. As you can see a lot happens. Rhianna Pratchett and Gail Simone are weaving a great story. They do a lot to make the characters feel real. This is a great continuation of the game and it seems to be finding its own foothold, I'm excited to see where they take it and if it will lead into the next game. Read Full Review
