I love “crossover” media, especially the hilariously illustrated recap comics. Here’s a list of four great Dota comics to read during the downtime between drama  tournaments.

Dota Comics: Esports

During DAC 2015, a Chinese fan drew comics depicting the events of each day of the main event. The comics were a huge hit in the Western scene as well, with fans translating them into English and posting them on Reddit. The original Reddit thread even explains idiomatic expressions and D  A  N  K    C  H  I  N  E  S  E    M  E  M  E  S. There are even comics for The Shanghai Major (lol), WCA 2015, and TI6!

In this Dota comic, EternalEnvy summons the power of anime to write a strongly worded blog post.

Dota Comics: Lore

Valve publishes beautifully illustrated comics, sometimes in conjunction with events or as Compendium stretch goals.

This guy is the real MVP–here’s a list up to September 2016 of all published Valve comics.

‘Meta’ Gaming Comics

NerfNow is a webcomic with an ongoing plot, as well as a lot of one-offs about various games. The creator draws quite a few Dota-themed strips.

NerfNow is a webcomic about a wide range of games, including Dota 2 on occasion.

NerfNow’s Guide to the Phases of Dota is definitely worth checking out.
