Any modern gamer has heard of and probably played something from the Valve back catalogue of games, including classics like Left 4 Dead, online multiplayer giant Team Fortress 2, to the revolutionary Half Life, and the ridiculously popular puzzle games Portal and Portal 2. Valve has released a large stylish hardcover volume of collected graphic novels based on some of these successful franchises called Valve Presents: The sacrifice and other steam powered stories.
Follow Left 4 Dead protagonists Bill, Zoey, Francis and Louis in the first days after the green flu outbreak in The Sacrifice. Read about Team Fortress 2’s Saxton Hale in an amusing 50’s style comic book series, and see what goes on with the staff at Aperture Laboratories as Chell is continually tested in Lab Rat.
Valve Presents is a great expansion of the Valve universe into the graphic novel format.
