Epic new Valve book allows you to Portal while you poop and Team Team Fortress from the toilet

Well no more! Because Dark Horse is publishing a real, tangible paper version. You know, just like Captain Picard would like. You want the whens and how-muches, don't you? Well these are they...

The book, coming in at 304 pages, and titled Valve Presents: The Sacrifice and other Steam-Powered Stories, is being published by Dark Horse in November. It will demand $30 in exchange for the imparting of its visual and narrative delights, and contains L4D's The Sacrifice comic (which links the end of the first game with the Sacrifice DLC) alongside Portal 2's Lab Rat and a whole bunch of TF2 stuff. It'll have a nice shiny hard cover as well.

No word on a UK price or release date yet, but I'd guess they wouldn't be too different to the US ones.

Thinking of picking this one up, or are you already knee-deep in a lengthy Print Screen/ Ctrl + P mission on Valve's official sites, with a stapler at the ready?

Cheers,Comic Book Resources.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
