R.I.P.D. "City of the Damned" comic is a prequel to R.I.P.D. movie. But it was published later.

In which order should I read/watch R.I.P.D. things?

Published? (original comic, movie, "City of the Damned")?

Chronological? ("City of the Damned", original comic, movie; or "City of the Damned", movie, original comic)?

Main comic first, then movie related chronologically? (original comic, "City of the Damned", movie).

Please explain why you recommend a specific order.

P.S. I'm aware that the original comic and the movie differ a lot. But not sure where the prequel stands - I'm assuming it's closer to the movie than the original comic?

City of the Damned was written specifically as an intro to the movie. If you read the rest before you would have an idea of the story (but not really).

I would save the other four for after the movie. Less "adaptation-loss" issues; you could almost treat it as another completely different tale.
