    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 28, 2014

    It's not easy being Lara Croft and issues like this just reinforces it. She wants to work with others, she wants to have support because there is that need to make sure that she's not doing things without realizing it again, but it's just not meant to be. She has challenges to face and has to face them on her own and she thankfully has the skills and talents to do that. Not that it's going to be easy and not that it's going to make sense, but she continues to push forward here to unearth the mysteries that have been laid before her. This issue moves things forward a good bit since even just getting close to the island itself is a big plus as all things are funneling us there and because we get her being proactive for the first time in a big. And that continues to be her strong suit. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 28, 2014

    Tomb Raider #4 is a rock solid release that may be a bit familiar, but it still manages to entertain from London to the one place Lara Croft doesn't want to go. Recommended. Read Full Review

    The Daily Crate - Keri Honea May 22, 2014

    I'm still waiting for the twist, for the big reveal that will make this series all worth it. Maybe I'm expecting too much since I adored the game. I didn't want the comic to follow along the game's story so closely; have a different plot that had nothing to do with Yamatai or the Solarii. Perhaps the only way to do that for future games and comics is to kill off everyone. Time will tell, I suppose.Tomb Raider #4 will release on May 28, 2014 via retail and digital download.

    Tomb Raider #4 is an ok issue that suffers once again from the artwork as all the characters appear to be emotionless regardless of the scene and that effectively diminishes the mature tone of the writing in the same panels. I'm not entirely sure if that's why it was stressed once again that saving Sam means a lot to Lara and the others but doing so prevented the story from moving forward even more, which at this point is very crucial to the story remaining intriguing. With the conclusion of this episode it seems we'll start to get the answers needed for this story arc to start making more sense and I can honestly say I'm looking forward to that. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido May 26, 2014

    The thing that drives me absolutely nuts about this comic is how much it didn't have to be this bad. I like what I've heard and seen of the new Tomb Raider video game and I would be genuinely interested in exploring the struggles of THAT character and HER universe but this isn't her. This is a panicky, out of her depth character that confuses doing SOMETHING for having agency or competence. I'm not saying you can't have a protagonist occasionally be panicky or out of their depth but with comic book Lara it's her soul character note; she's always panicking and flailing and it gets really old and really annoying really quickly: not recommended.
