Portal 2: Lab Rat online comic to launch Friday

Thursday, 7 April 2011 03:25 GMT By Brenna Hillier

To feed your Portal 2 anticipation, Valve has produced an online comic bridging the gap between the two games.

IGN will debut the first part of the comic on Friday.

Apparently, the plot will reveal a “much-rumored yet never seen character”, and fill in a little of Aperture Science’s backstory.

The comic, subtitled Lab Rat, has been produced entirely by Valve; in-house artists Andrea Wicklund and Michael Avon Oeming collaborated with Marc Laidlaw, Chet Faliszek, Erik Wolpaw, Jay Pinkerton and Josh Weir.
