Oeming co-wrote the story for Portal 2: Lab Rat with Ted Kosmatka. Overseeing the whole project, he created the layout and drew the flashback scenes while Andrea Wicklund illustrated the main story. He also drew another Portal comic, Turret Lullaby. Oeming wished to create a comic based on Half-Life 2, but this plan never came to fruition.
