Saxton Hale and his opinions of his 'customers'

From Australium to Zepheniah Mann

"TF2 didn't start with a lot of story. There wasn't room for one. But as the updates got more ambitious, we found the perfect way to explore the mercs' world: comics. Over the years, the comics have spawned ancillary characters, then assistants to the ancillary characters. Companies mentioned in passing became global empires three generations old. The game that started as a handful of guys in a desert shooting at each other slowly blossomed into the most labyrinthine story in Valve history."

The Team Fortress 2 Comics are promotional comics used in large updates for the PC, but do contain information regarding the Classes and history of the World known as Team Fortress 2.

Please take note that not all comics are listed. Usually because they are not associated with the Team Fortress 2 story in anyway.
