    Team Fortress Comics #3 is live! You can catch up with Issue #1 and Issue #2 here, or just keep reading for the ultra-fast TL;DR version:


    Gray Mann has taken control of Mann Co., the mercs have disbanded, and the Administrator has disappeared! Six months later, the Administrator has tasked her assistant Miss Pauling with getting the team back together for one last mysterious job. With Demo, Spy, Scout, Soldier and Pyro already on board, Pauling must find the rest of the team before Gray finds her. Meanwhile, Saxton Hale has reunited with Maggie, an old flame, only to discover she is now working for Charles Darling, his greatest nemesis. All caught up? Good. Here's Issue #3.


    Let's see, what else? Oh, we're also working on a Moonbase! It's got a whole bunch of interesting new gameplay and we're pretty excited about it. We think you will be too. Here's some concept art:

    Last thing: taunts! We're working on a way for you guys to upload your own taunts to the Workshop, which should be a lot of fun. We're also animating some new ones ourselves that we think you're going to love. We'll leave you with a tiny preview:

    That better be a PDA taunt. Would hate to have it attached to something new.

    They're either reusing, remaking or adding onto the "Lunar" assets in the Bulletcorps pack. They're pretty nice, albeit unfinished.

    Wonder if it has something to do with that MVM roof I found.

    Well the engineer taunt starts from the pistol idle animation so I doubt it's for a new item and the asset above looks like those lights doctors use in an operating theatre ala Meet the Medic.

    Man fooey on the moonbase, I'm probably the only old schooler here to find it TOTALLY AWESOME the TFC guys showed up (albeit changed a little).

    edit: looking over them closer and refreshing my memory, they did an awesome job at both aging them and mixing the v1 and v2 models together to satisfy all the oldies.

    dev textures in the moonbase map suggest it's a little while off. That or they've been sitting on the image for a while.

    Unless you're looking at a different image, isnt it just concept art? Also, it looks nothing like the bulletcrops assets.

    Maybe now we'll finally see a taunt for the Bonk. If I knew anything about animating 3D models, I'd make one where he crushes the can on his head. Unfortunately my plan for the Jarate taunt involves new voice lines so that won't work.

    Call me when the QWTF crew shows up.

    Mostly want to see a conversation between the Medics about how the hell the healing axe worked.

    So, is tfc coming back, as some sort of mann vs man new gamemode where you play tfc characters as BLU and tf2 characters as RED, while RED needs to protect the "civilian" (miss pauling)?

    I want the TFC Heavy to be voiced by Nolan North using his Adventure Sphere voice. That's what I heard in my head when I read those pages.

    I'm betting the TFC classes are just a joke for the comic and aren't related to the actual game at all.
