Blackruzsa wanted to see some WItchblade/Tomb Raider crossover comic, so here IS some WItchblade/Tomb Raider crossover comic.
It's not that good, but it exists.
I'm gonna go ahead and say that if you're not feeling much like looking at ladies drawn.. well drawn by Michael Turner, OK? Every breast a shining almost-sphere, every leg a stilt, every lip a glossy marshmallow. Everything straining and presented. If you don't feel like that, click past this post, yeah?
My copy of this comes at the front of a Witchblade trade (don't judge me - as a teen I found the Top Cow female line-up sort of viciously short-term cathartic). It's twenty three pages but seems shorter and it just a little mini-adventure that I don't think really fits in anywhere in particular with either of their comics' canon. There's a pre-story intro, which I scanned poorly, but it's really nothing you don't already know so just skim-read around the blurs and you'll be fine.
Here we are - the late Michael Turner on pencils, and nobody credited for anything anywhere on this story. There are some "pin-ups" interspersed, so we can guess that Joe Weems and JD Smith were involved on inking and colouring. This short is followed by Witchblade 5 in the trade, and the writer for that is.. Z./Wohl? Is the forward-slash a part of their name? Is it a typo? Are they ever the writer?
It's a mystery.
Enter Sara. looking.. thin.
I should have scrapped this scan and done it again but I don't OWN the scanner I use, so, impossible! Blah blah some woman and henchmen pinched a statuette, Lara is chasing them, Sara joins in, Lara makes Sara drive on "the wrong side" because Lara needs to shoot (in England? Jail and etiquette lessons, missy!). Top left - Lara calls Sara "love". Britishism or OTP? You decide.
Backstory of the statuette, plus some ass:
The backstory actually takes four pages, but the gist is captured above.
Pew pew pew, swerve, pew pew! Oh no, Sara didn't know the glass was bulletproof! So she drove off the bridge to avoid the bullets (what?)!
Also, booooobs. Hurr hurr hurr.
Stuff happens: the statuette comes alive, makes a giant lion eat the woman who stole it, shouts about how she is Bastet, she hates the Witchblade, she cared only for love while the blade cared only for DEATH, and that nothing is fair. By holding the idol between them, Lara and Sara somehow imprison Bastet again:
So, Sara gave Lara a cat? What does this mean.
Aaaand then they go home and get wet.
Cut to "dead" Buck, sitting in a pyramid, all cat-eyed. Dun dun dun or whatever.
So, now you have seen! What thoughts, friends?
And does anyone know if this story WAS continued in "Tales of the Witchblade", at this point "coming next year"?
