Sequel-Bridging Portal Comic Coming Tomorrow
We’re getting dangerously close to the beginning of the next chapter of the GLaDOS story in Portal 2, what with the game coming out in less than two weeks, but you might be wondering, what happened between this new game and the last? Why is there jungle all over the place? Didn’t large portions of the Aperture Science facility explode?
Seeing as we only have the bits and pieces of information about Portal 2′s story from articles that have come out since its announcement, Valve has deemed it necessary to bridge the gap using — wait for it — a comic book. How original.
But seriously, it’s a free Portal 2 comic (called Portal 2: Lab Rat) and it debuts Friday on IGN Comics. Valve produced it in-house and it sounds like they actually put some work, effort, money and talent into it. Hopefully that means it does a better job of bridging the gap than the Mass Effect prequel comic did for Playstation 3 players of Mass Effect 2.
