New segments will be added each week through June 7.

To create "Re\Visioned: Tomb Raider" GameTap commissioned Peter Chung, Jim Lee, Warren Ellis, Cully Hamner, Gail Simone, David Alvarez, Michael Stackpole, Brian Pulido and Christos Gage, to provide their impressions of 'Lara Croft'.

The first episode will debut July 10, with new episodes running through August 23.

There are 10 episodes in total.

"We wanted to do something special for Lara's 10th anniversary," said Larry Sparks, Eidos' head of brands management.

"Working with GameTap allowed us to tell the 'Tomb Raider' story like never before, complete with fan interviews from around the world and a first ever photo shoot that brought together the live-action 'Lara Croft' models."
