Before Valve's new game comes out later this month, we thought we might interest you in a supplemental comic, Portal 2: Lab Rat. What, you'd prefer some crummy video game instead? Think about it. Would you rather (1) dirty your hands hands interacting to force the fun out of a disc or (2) just look at a screen and have the fun happen to you? When the first part debuts on IGN Comics tomorrow, the choice will be clear.

Besides, the comic has people like Powers co-author Michael Avon Oeming, and Erik Wolpaw and Chet Faliszek working on it. Nobody at Valve could possibly compete with -- oh, really? All of them work there?

... Well, the comic's also free.
