Dark Hose and Square Enix have teamed up to deliver a prequel comic for Crystal Dynamics’ new Tomb Raider game.

Underworld is a curious beast as it was the most ambitious project of the second wave Tomb Raider games but fell remarkably flat, triggering a dramatic retooling of the franchise. It’s got some pretty terrific shark bits, as I recall. Get ye to the free game.
Thanks, Blue’s News.
