Story

Lara in Turkey
When Carter Bell, who has recently taken up falconry, asks her for help, Lara Croft, who is currently visiting her friend in the Antalya Province in Turkey, goes rock climbing to retrieve his lost sparrow hawk. On the sail back to Istanbul Lara enquires into Carter's current research of ivory miniatures.

Lara in Belize
Back home in England Lara is found researching on a computer station in the British Museum when her friend Chris bursts in, reporting that the Croswell Reindeer, a carved prehistoric mammoth ivory, has been stolen from the museum. The two group up with Jon, an elderly gentleman working for the museum and a female security guard as they were the only four people who were in the secure part of the museum while the artefact went missing. They examine the security footage, which shows Jon staring at the artefact. He tells them he had a sudden feeling that the item belonged in the jungle in Belize when he stood there. In the video he is casting a strong shadow on the object, making it hard to see, when the item suddenly disappears.

After they have been questioned by security, Lara decides to tail Jon. When he spots her, he flees, grabbing a cab. She follows him to the airport. There she loses him, but on a hunch she books the next flight to Belize. She remains in contact with Chris back home and tells him that she has picked up Jon's trail. Just when she finds an abandoned Jeep on a dirt road near a hut, her phone rings. It's Carter, but Lara ignores the call. Instead she enters the hut and finds Jon and the Croswell Reindeer. Jon seems a little possessed, snapping in and out of sanity. Finally madness takes over and Lara is attacked by roots grabbing her.

Review

This new comic series is off to a good start. The beginning of the comic focusses of the relationship between Carter and Lara. It becomes clear that the two have become friends, helping each other out, when needed. It is clear that there is more to come and it's probably significant that he called her. Maybe she should have picked up the phone. After all he was researching ivory miniatures, and maybe he knows what it going on with Jon. In-between Lara's story the sinister Mr. Green is introduced. He clearly has his own agenda and possibly something to do with Jon's obsession?
