More awesome Portal stuff

Portal's story is truly awesome, but I had no idea the creators had fleshed out each theme with so much detail until now.
If you have become obsessed with Portal cannon (as I have), check out this comic (created internally at Valve) which reveals the storyline between Portal 1 and Portal 2, and also sheds light on the origin of Glad0s.

When you're done with the comic, check out these Portal secrets & easter eggs you might have missed during your playthrough. Many of them showcase the rooms used by "Ratman" whose story is the main focus of the above comic. Some of the easter eggs are pretty hardcore; certain hidden audio clips from the game can be decoded to reveal some neat stuff.
Also, the whole Prometheus theme in Portal 2 is crazy relevant, I'm guessing that the writers might have used it as the template for the overall story arc.
Hooray for Portal!
