    Tomb Raider #7 is a solid start to the new story arc, and has a great blend of character development, intrigue, and of course, action. Initially I was concerned about the vision of Alex coming back from the dead to warn Lara but it was explained, and could serve as character development. I was impressed with the building tension surrounding those seeking Kaz for competing reasons, and so I can't wait to see how events unfold with Lara growing into her role with her newfound assertiveness.

    New characters, new mysteries, no psychopaths. Fun times. Business as usual for Lara Croft, Tomb Raider. Read Full Review

    The new arc tosses a lot of balls in the air and it's not intent on catching any of them yet. What it's doing is setting a few things into motion and you can definitely enjoy the pieces while wondering at the whole. I like the Reyes and Lara time for what it offers between the two after the events of Yamatai, but Lara frustrates me later in what she does in dealing with Sam after what she had been put through. The Iceland piece is a bit of a mystery, but you know our dapper man will find his way into Lara's life soon enough and that right now it's just a bit of stage setting. The Ukraine aspect has its intrigue and provides for the real action of the moment, doing so well, but it moves so quickly from location to location across the issue that I'm feeling a little bit like I'm caught in a whirlwind without a clue of where I'm going to set down. It certainly offers a lot of promise though. Read Full Review

    If you were a fan of the Tomb Raider reboot or just a Tomb Raider fan in general then I would most definitely recommend checking this book out. There are a lot of great character moments for Lara and some good throwbacks to the game it was based on, and offers a little taste of what we can expect from Rise of The Tomb Raider next year.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 27, 2014

    Tomb Raider #7 is another solid outing that inspects the aftermath of a situation that forever changes the people that manage to survive it. For that the creative team indeed deserves credit but it feels a bit repetitive. Recommended. Read Full Review

    I don't want to quit this comic, I really don't. Just like why Jen returns to Resident Evil each time, I keep coming back hoping that this issue will improve. No, maybe this one. This one. This one! I know I say this every month, but maybe next issue will clarify the situation and improve. Or maybe I just need to ditch the wine and switch to tequila after reading each issue.
