Dark Horse Comics, the home of Buffy, Star Wars comics, and a boy from Hell, is known for characters with strong personalities and big names to back them up. This year will be no different. Editor in Chief, Scott Allie, joined us for an extensive discussion on their titles, women on the comics pages, women writing and drawing the comics themselves, and the women buying them (Hey, that’s us!). They’ve also given us a ton of exclusive cover reveals! Here’s Part 1 of our chat, Part 2 will be up tomorrow.READ MORE

I generally prefer to keep my comic books and my video games in separate spheres, but Dark Horse’s upcoming Tomb Raider series has my full attention. In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources, writer Gail Simone gives some insights into the first twelve issues. The first twelve issues. That’s a lot of adventuring ahead. Let’s hope Lara’s travels include plenty of ammo crates.READ MORE

Gail Simone, comic-writing veteran of some of the most celebrated runs on Birds of Prey, Secret Six, Batgirl, Red Sonya, The All New Atom and Wonder Woman, has taken up the task of shepherding Lara Croft from her most recent hit game to its sequel, and not in a miniseries, in a new ongoing adventure. Here’s the first six pages of that debut comic, straight from Dark Horse themselves.READ MORE

What do you do when you get sick of waiting for a Tomb Raider film that does Lara Croft justice? You make one yourself! It’s 20 minutes long, but you need to watch this incredible fan film, which features Lara bringing the Katniss realness. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more legitimately kick-ass live-action version of Lara than the one Cassandra Ebner plays here in Croft.READ MORE

We already kind of expected this, since Gail Simone mentioned it when her gig writing comics that pick up where Tomb Raider left off was announced, but it’s nice to have official word. Phil Rogers, Square Enix CEO, has confirmed that the company is hard at work to a next generation sequel to this year’s reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. And it’s a good thing too, with that movie somewhere in production. Darrell Gallagher, studio head of Crystal Dynamics, chimed in today:
It’s still early days, so I’m afraid I can’t provide any further details for now save my assurance that we’re not resting on our laurels and acclaim from Tomb Raider’s recent successes, but working hard to raise the bar even higher and re-affirm the faith you’ve shown.
As a writer interested in seeing more lead female characters get their due, this news makes me happy. As a gamer, I want to shout “PUT IN MORE TOMBS.” And as the owner of a wallet, I suppose I’ll have to start assimilating the idea of purchasing a next generation console close to its actual release.

Sometimes we talk about poorly sourced rumors here because they look very, very likely to be true. Sometimes we talk about things that may not be something that Hollywood is officially doing, or will ever officially do, because we very, very much want it to be something that happens.
You know, like Hayley Atwell returning to the nerd world as the lead in the Tomb Raider movie reboot currently in development.READ MORE

Convention harassment is just an off-shoot of regular, old harassment but seeing it invade your “safe space” can be tough to stomach. And some people have had enough. At PAX East this past weekend, a journalist (I use that term loosely) decided to interview a group of Lara Croft cosplayers at the new Tomb Raider video game booth. What followed was not a professional interview of fans but rather a chance to treat women in costume not as people, but as sex objects. The Mary Sue spoke with one of the cosplayers involved as well as PAX management about the situation – a situation we’re hearing about far too often these days.READ MORE
