I've always had this love/hate relationship with Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise. I always dug that she was such a strong female character in a game. I never dug her physical representations. And where I appreciate the attempt to make her more accurate, Taks said it best: "That girl needs a sammich". Which I, of course, translated into a Gamer Girl Comic.
The catalyst for this comic was a copy of "The Way", an nVidia mini mag that came attached to this month's Maxumum PC, featuring Tomb Raider: Legend on the cover.
Now, I think it's perfectly understandable to disagree with me on the new Lara. But, this is how I saw it. For all she does, athleticism would factor heavily into her build. But, the new Lara has spindly arms, her chest is still too large for the shirt she's wearing. Her hips and legs look pretty good, anatomically speaking. But, unless she's had her bottom set of ribs removed, her mid section just looks too small. And, well, from the other images I've seen, she's kinda got a big butt.
Okay, okay, I digress. And again, I admit that my idea of too thin is probably a good deal more liberal than what current popular culture dictates.
