> Digital Spy reviews the rebooted 'Tomb Raider'
"I chose to do this series solely because I loved the game so much, so we're definitely keeping the tone of the game," she told Kotaku.
"I've always loved the classic, cool Lara Croft, but this feels like her origin story, like we're seeing her before she becomes the icon, and it's very compelling to me.
"The storytelling in the game hooked me instantly. The biggest difference is, the game told a claustrophobic story in an isolated setting. We are going globetrotting."
The Tomb Raider series will be set mere weeks after the conclusion of the game.
Simone recently announced a raft of female writers for Dynamite Entertainment's Red Sonja Legends.
An artist is yet to be announced for the project. Dan dos Santos will provide the covers.
Tomb Raider #1 will arrive on February 26, 2014. Watch a trailer for the latest game below:
