Valve and Dark Horse are teaming up to bring Valve’s extensive Dota 2 web comics to print for the first time ever in Dota 2: The Comic Collection.

This is the latest in Valve and Dark Horse’s partnership which last saw Valve Presents: The Sacrifice and Other Steam-Powered Stories back in 2011. That collection featured three fan-favorite series jumping from the video screen to print with stories from Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress, and Portal. It had over 200 pages of story that was a must-read for fans of the franchises who wanted to further explore the beloved games.

This new hardcover, Dota 2: The Comic Collection. will take a deep dive into the characters and history of Dota 2, the most played game on Steam. You will get to see the characters beyond their allegiance to Radiant or Dire. There will even be a glimpse into the origins of the Ancients and the deeper workings of the world they inhabit.

Dota 2: The Comic Collection will feature eight premier comics that will be available in hard back on August 1st.
