I'm very pleased to unveil three new "Stella's Tomb Raider Site" title banners featuring comic book-style Lara in action. This brings the total to 12 banners, all drawn by the brilliant artist Ramiel, whose work appears on tombraiders.net courtesy of Atlantis Studios.
Atlantis is a professional art studio dedicated to developing high-quality science fiction, fantasy, and action-adventure comics and graphic novels, specialty illustrations and storyboards for film producers and video game developers. Tomb Raider fans are probably most familiar with their Tales of Lara Croft comic art fanzine. To see more of Ramiel's work, visit Atlantis Studios or subscribe to the Tales of Lara Croft at PlanetLara.com. A special issue featuring "Lara's Rival," with original story by Will Turner and illustrations by Ramiel, is now available in PDF format.
The trio of new banners show Lara putting a boot to a Viking thrall....
Our heroine closing in on a precious treasure, while a four-legged predator closes in on her....
...and Lara wielding Thor's Hammer, Mjolnir against an ancient foe.

I love them all, but my favorite is still one of the first banners I commissioned: the one showing Lara in her PVC catsuit fighting the laser-wielding robot. How about you? Check out all 12 banners here and then vote for your favorites in the poll below. (You may choose more than one if you like.)
Or post a comment. Which do you like? Do you prefer comic book style or more realistic artwork? Any ideas for future banners?
