Beyond the street date (January 23, 2009), there's nothing much else to go on about the series, other than it predates RISE OF THE LYCANS (check out our Comic-Con coverage of that flick HERE). They don't tell much more beyond that, like how far back it goes, or what the storyline is about, other than it's a prequel to UNDERWORLD's prequel.
IDW has another UNDERWORLD series out there, continuing the story of the first two films, entitled RED IN TOOTH AND CLAW (check those out HERE), so I think it's safe to say they know what they're doing.
Stick around for more information on this comic prequel, and get ready for UNDERWORLD 3 in theaters sometime next year.
