The story of Team Fortress 2 boasts a very loose continuity. Though comics serve to explain concepts such as the origins of a weapon, some events may conflict.
A number of six Team Fortress 2 comics were featured in Valve Presents: The Sacrifice and Other Steam-Powered Stories, a hardcover compilation of comics that are based on the lore of Valve games. The book was published by Dark Horse Comics, and released on November 16, 2011.
