Dota 2 Comics: Every character and hero in DOTA 2 has a story behind them. However, Valve has done one better than themselves, by releasing the official DOTA2 comics: Tales from the Secret Shop.
Myths and lore are one of the other things apart from the gameplay that makes DOTA2 one of the best MOBA games. Each character gets a unique backstory. While a few characters are rivals in their own stories like Kunka and Tidehunter or Slardar and Slark, some are also related, the Lina and Crystal Maiden, the siblings.
These intricately woven backstories are one of the many reasons for the game’s tremendous success. However, in order to make more content available to passionate DOTA2 fans, Valve thought of an ingenious new idea.
Where to read the Dota 2 comics?
These comic books are available on the DOTA2 official website. However, one Reddit user who understands the hunger for DOTA2 content has actually compiled a list of the comics and made the entire set available at the click of a button.
The comics are available in multiple languages apart from English. Fans who want to read them can download them as PDFs.
The available 9 comics in chronological order are:
- A New Journey ( Monkey King Comic )
Tales from the Secret Shop
Valve released Tales from the Secret Shop, the official DOTA 2 comic nearly 9 years ago. The comic is divided into 6 parts containing 46 pages, which should be plenty of content for avid DOTA2 players. The story in the DOTA 2 comics features the mighty Roshan itself, a few heroes and a lot of creeps. The comic features two people on a quest to defeat the ancient Roshan as a mission from the owner of Secret shop.
DOTA 2: The Comic Collection is the perfect gift for those who want to see a glimpse into the origins of the Ancients and the deeper workings of the world they inhabit.
