LARA CROFT AND THE FROZEN OMEN

PrintE-mail Written by Andrew Musk

It has been three years since the Lara Croft reboot in the comics, which has allowed an interpretation of a young and overconfident Lara as she finds herself on many adventures. However, for the many long-term fans of Lara Croft, a welcome return to the experienced and high- spirited Lara that they are used to. Well luckily this void may be filled with the arrival of Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen.

Corinna Bechko has given her talent to create a mini comic series centred on an epic Lara Croft tale. This is set in the same universe as the videogames, Lara Croft and the Guardian Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. However, this novel can be understood and read as a fun filled standalone read. As with all Lara Croft stories, it tells of an impending disaster of a world wide scale. When ancient ivory artefacts are linked to some peculiar situations in the world, Lara Croft steps in to investigate and to save the world from the potential devastation.

In terms of the storyline, it is a classic Lara Croft tale that gives a nod to classic Lara Croft. It is a fun and fast paced adventure. It does contain many cliques and doesn’t have any surprises throughout the story. It reads like a nostalgia filled comic that ticks off all the boxes for a classic adventure tale. However, although it can be a predictable read, it is great to see a fun and humorous return for Lara Croft. It’s a fun and quick read that will leave you searching for more Lara Croft comics.
