Today is free comic book day, and in honor of the sort-of holiday, Valve has published a comic to catch readers up on its ongoing Team Fortress 2 comic book.

The comic has been published for free quarterly by Valve for some time. It recently published its third issue. Valve has offered the catch-up comic to readers looking for a recap, or who want to bypass previous issues and dive right in. You can read the catch-up comic by heading here.

Our Take
It never occurred to me that Team Fortress 2 would have a detailed story behind it, but reading through the catch-up comic, it makes sense in a bizarre but interesting way. It's worth a read if you're unfamiliar as I was.
