Witchblade/Tomb Raider Special Vol.1, # 1 (short Witchblade/Tomb Raider) is the second crossover comic between the Witchblade and Tomb Raider universes published by Top Cow. It came out one year after the first meeting of Sara Pezzini and Lara Croft, in December 1998 in Tomb Raider Witchblade Special Vol.1, Issue 1. It was pencilled by Michael Turner and penned by Michael Turner and Bill O'Neil.


"Sara - Close your office door and listen up. I need your help with something that tastes of the supernatural. In fact, there's a connection with your Macy's Christmas special (ha!) that I'm sure you'll find interesting. I'll explain when I see you. Meet me at the British Museum in London tomorrow night at seven. Wear your pretties. Lara"

Following an intriguing invitation from her friend, Sara Pezzini travels to London to meet Lara at an event in the British Museum. Upon her arrival Sara witnesses a woman fleeing the scene, stolen artefact in hand. Lara is high on her heels, weapon drawn. She tells Sara to drive her car, a red Aston Martin Volante, to chase after the thieves. While en route, Lara tells Sara that the person who stole the artefact - an Idol of Bastet that Lara herself recovered in Giza - is Genvieve LeCavalier, an Earls widow and wealthy perfumer from the continent, who previously offered Lara money for the relic.

The idol is a small statuette of a stylized cat, Egyptian in origin.
