    I always found the amount of (good) lore/story that Valve has put into TF2 to be very impressive. Especially considering it's a MP only title.

    I may not have played the game in about a year, but I still love the characters and story in the comics. I enjoyed it as much as I would have if it came out when they said it would. It reminded me just how much I loved the characters, in a way that i don't think Overwatch could ever replicate.

    For the current comic series the next one is the last, but they could, although I doubt it, start a new one after or release short ones for updates

    Beautiful. Thank you Valve for confirming Team Fortress 2's first liversexual character.
    Another step in the right direction.

    I would gladly, retroactively pay for this. I'm definitely buying the Darkhorse graphic novel whenever it finally drops.

    I no longer regret a dollar I sunk in to TF2 (and those dollars were many multiple.) I have milked that game and it's universe for joy to an extent that no other game has lived up to, or I think will live up to. Even now, I sometimes wistfully gaze at it, still installed, and wonder if maybe I could stomach a round or two more of auld lang syne. (No, I cannot.)

    God Bless TF2.

    I don't know, it's confusing. How would they know where they are going if Medic took all their souls?

    Is that something that's been confirmed?

    I have the first Valve GN and I've been waiting years for them to do a second volume. Only six TF2 comics are in the first one. You can tell by the timing (releasing just before a bunch more TF2 comics hit that year) that they meant to make Valve GNs a series (especially since some store listings call it "volume 1"), but they just...didn't.

    Typical Valve move, but at least all this waiting hopefully culminates in a glorious, thick TF2 book with all 28 comics.

    Scout's name is apparently Jeremy.

    I can't help but think that's a reference to Jerma985.

    I'm more shocked that they finally admitted it. I mean, everybody knew but I'm more interested in the fact that    Scout is 27 years old   .

    The Track Terrorizer's description says he's 23, during the time TF2 actually takes place

    For a brief stint in high school, Scout joined the track team in one of his many schemes to pick up girls. He was kicked off the team after three days when everyone realized he was 23-years-old and also not enrolled in the school.
    The comics take place after TF2. I don't have the exact years in my head but it probably checks out

    I was thinking about how the comics have made Scout look more and more like Jerma, too.

    Fuck me this issue was good though.

    That was surprisingly incredibly good.
    As stated above, if TF3 is ever a thing they better use this cast of characters

    Scout being so welcome in heaven was a surprisingly lighthearted moment after all the "gross humor" throughout most of the comic.

    I mean, until the neck snap at the end.

    Now wouldn't that imply that these people all have a twin? Are we stepping into Metal Gear territory here?

    I'd like to know where you saw that too.

       I thought he took the souls of the old TF team, not the TF2 cast of characters. Which makes sense seeing as he was apparantley working for them up until this point.

       Nah, a guy said "how did you beat us" and the medic responded with "because we don't have souls", which implies that the reason the team kept coming back from their respective afterlives is because they don't have souls.

    That's a joke. There was literally a note on the wiki for some time asking people not to mark Scout's age as 23 because it's a joke.

    Fairly certain they're random and just there to give an idea of what the term 'Team Fortress' means.

    I assumed they're referring to the 3 other TFC teams. I looked at the old logos for some kind of support but I'm not sure.

    Citadel and Vanguard are both defensive things, so is Fortress. Dunno about Echelon though.
