    In this issue we see that Lara's friends Reyes and Jonah have followed her on to Yamatai and that they are intent on helping her out any way they can. And at the same time, we finally come full circle with the ending of the game itself and learn the mystery behind the artifacts that Lara is supposed to have had but didn't, and which was the impetus behind the events in the first couple issues. There are a lot of twists in this story and I loved every moment of them. Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider #6 is an overall satisfying conclusion to the first story arc, and answers all the questions that have been raised throughout in an electrifying fashion, and at times literally. I felt that Lara's portrayal at times throughout the series took a step back from what was established in the video game but the glimpses here and the explanation for that fits in the story wonderfully. The mystical elements didn't tie together as neatly for me but at least served a purpose. And more so than that I'm looking forward to the next story arc because I believe the adventures ahead will be even better. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 20, 2014

    The concluding issue of this arc does a lot of familiar things in solid fashion as we see Lara struggle with her captivity, the arrival of others along the way to help out and a few revelations about the past that will fill in a few gaps for those that are more deeply involved in the franchise as a whole. The arc was one that definitely had its ups and downs for a variety of reasons and getting used to who this new Lara is was definitely one of them, but there's a lot of room to grow and things to do with it. The arc had its weird moments though and that left me feeling a little unsettled with it. I'm definitely in for another arc though since the team here did a solid job on both writing and artwork but felt like it was dealing with some constraints in being the continuation from the game and what was established there.

    Thank God this arc is over, and I'm ready to welcome the next story with open arms. I still have a smidgen of faith that the Tomb Raider comic series can be great despite this awful start. There is so much potential with Lara Croft, I sincerely hope this potential isn't squandered in the comics. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 24, 2014

    The game may have had issues with Lara's character lacking personal agency but at least she had an arc, this comic just felt like a waste of time and made me question the wisdom in doing more Tomb Raider stories, not recommended. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Nevin Jones Aug 13, 2014

    The first six issues of this comic have only hurt the character. I fear this as an ongoing comic. If the flailing, worthless Lara of this comic has to continue, can she at least do it while in a tomb? Preferably one she is raiding, like the series' name suggests. Read Full Review
