For the hardcore Portal fan.

Ok, I admit that the title of this post is kinda misleading. If you are a hardcore Portal fan, then you already know all the geeky little things I am about to post here. Nevertheless, if you consider yourself a true fan I am sure you will enjoy this.

The Comic

The graphic novel Portal 2: Lab Rat , created by established comic artists, such as Michael Avon Oeming and Jay Pinkerton, depicts the events between the end of Portal and the beginning of Portal 2.

It is the story of the schizophrenic employee of Aperture Science, Doug Rattman,

who survived GLADOS‘ attempt to murder every employee in the Aperture Science facilities with neurotoxin,  witnessed Chell’s final test and tried to rescue her after she was abducted by the Party Escort Bot. A must-read for every Portal fan.

You can listen to the awesome mashup here.

It is for this same song that a music video contest was held. The first place was awarded to the following two music videos

And the second place to this one:
