Lara Croft - The Endless Search - Ben Rosenthal

1. Lara Croft is standing to the left of the panel. We see her mostly from the back, but is at an angle that we also get a side profile of her as well. She is dressed in her classic blue top and green shorts, and a gun in each hand. She is looking out over a room full of Egyptian hieroglyphics.

“I’ve been on its trail for years, ever since the beginning.”

2. Lara is standing the same as the previous panel. She is now dressed in brown crop top and brown pants. In front of her is a large waterfall, with the slight hint of fire coming from behind it.

“I’ve come close to getting it, only for it to be revealed as fake.”

3. Lara is again in the same pose, but this time sporting a blue long sleeved top and grey cargo pants. She is looking out over rubble of a long forgotten city within the Amazon.

“Now though ... now I have it. I’m sure of it.”

4. Lara is in the same pose as the other panels. However this time she is wearing her full body black leather costume. She is standing in the middle of the Colosseum in Rome.

“Here’s hoping it works......”

“Up, Up, Down, Left, Right, Up, Right, Down, Right.”

6. The panel reads ‘Code Accepted. Nude Lara Croft is now playable

“It works! After all these years – it works!”

7. We see panel 4 again, exactly the same however this time Lara is standing nude. However, black bars cover her naughty bits. ‘CENSORED’ is written across them.



  1. haha I got a good laugh from this one! I'm sure millions of fanboys out there were yelling "DAMMIT!" along-side your narrator :)

  2. Brilliant, very sharp. Always love a good spoof entry and this one plays with expectations really well.
