Format: Hardcover
Sure, the content of this book is freely avaliable online, on valve's site no less, but that's not why I bought it and that's not why you're intrested in buying it. If you want a physical copy of the the Left 4 Dead comic 'The Sacrifice', The TF2 comics from WAR! through to 'Meet the Director' and Portal 2's 'Lab Rat' all in one collection, then you cannot go wrong with this book.

The presentation is immaculate. It's big (slightly bigger than a sheet of A4 paper), it's a hardback, and no expense has been spared in its production. The print is of the highest quality, the pages are thick, and the cover art is beautiful.

Basically this book isn't going to live in my bookshelf. It's going to live ON it. It's an artwork to display, with the feature that you can open it up and and be bowled over by the skill of Valve's artists in their ability to create such distinctive signature styles for each title. If you have any appreciation for the art created by the visionaries at Valve, or any intrest in comics whatsoever, you owe yourself this book (read: artwork).

Valve Presents: The Sacrifice and other Steam-Powered Stories Volume 1 [Hardback version from Dark Horse Books].

My players of games are also readers of books of all kinds.

This is a win win win and really no sacrifice at all.

Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2 and Portal 2 game related stories rendered as brilliant graphics that take your imagination even further.

202 pages of Valve inspired Dark Horse Comics goodness.

After the machines have gone quiet and the screens gone dark, these pages get turned.

This is volume 1, is it too much to hope that there might be volume 2 waiting somewhere ?

Cake anyone?

Of the graphic novels I own (Kick Ass limited edition, 300, a few others) this is by far the highest print quality. The preview photo on the top left does not do itself any favors - it is a lot bigger than it will first seem. The paper and print quality is stunning, the comic work is brilliant (I assume since you're reading this you're a fan of one of the three games it covers). I haven't played TF2, so I haven't read that, the Portal 2 one seemed a bit... removed... from it, but the L4D Sacrifice one is truly amazing. It forms half the book, and sticks very closely to the storyline (whereas the Portal 2 one doesn't really).

An absolute must have.

This was a great gift for my Valve Fan friends birthday.
The book itself is great quailty so you can't really go wrong if you're a huge Portal, HL or TF2 fan.
Great addition to any collection.

The "Graphic Novel" was delivered on time, within 3 days I believe, which was good, and it was in perfect condition! I recommend this for anyone, even if they have not played: Portal, TF2, or Left for Dead. Great read.

Seriously, this book is just awesome. Never before have I fallen in love with a near-naked Australian with Australian shaped chest hair, and the ability to jump through windows and beat up hippies... I feel somewhat enlightened.

Ordered this for a friend as a very late christmas present.

It arrived quickly and nicely packaged! From what I've heard, he absolutely loves it. Good item for gamers and/or Valve fanboys.
