Valve's series of "Meet the..." videos for Team Fortress 2 are some of the smartest, funniest clips this industry has ever seen. So it shouldn't surprise you that the company is looking at doing something similar for the upcoming DOTA 2.

"There are a lot of heroes in DOTA 2—105 so far, and we're gonna continue producing these videos. There's definitely something with this world," Valve's Erik Johnson told 1UP.

We got a look at something fancy with the game's first official trailer, released last month, but we're obviously going to be seeing a lot more of them in the months/years to come.

In addition to the videos, Johnson also said, "We definitely have stories that we're going to tell in DOTA, there's even a comic that's gonna be released", which shows Valve is deadly serious about its move into that medium following the recent reveal of its first compendium of in-house comics.

Wonder if there's room in the DOTA-verse for time-lapse and a jar of piss?
