Tomb Raider King (도굴왕) Manhwa Review

anime nomi tomb raider king featured image

A review of Tomb Raider King which is also known as King of Excavation and TRK. It is a fantasy adventure created by author Sanjijiksong and illustrated by Redice Studio. It gives the reader an immersion into the life of a tomb raider who is after special relics from mystery tombs that suddenly appear throughout the world… in short, those who have relics rule the world. I found it enjoyable to read and overall it has a nice story and awesome art style. I would definitely recommend this if you like graphic novels such as Solo Leveling or The Max Level Hero Has Returned.

Overall the story follows our protagonist Seo Joo-Heon who explains that since the relics appeared he has worked for a greedy CEO who in the end betrays him and his team. Seconds before dying he is given a second chance and sent back to the year 2025… just before the relics appeared, he has his knowledge intact and his new goal is to become the king.
