Comic 1: The Coming of the Toa, the first BIONICLE comic
The BIONICLE franchise relates much of its storyline content through the use of Comics, packaged with the LEGO Club Magazine. Different types of comics, such as promotional ones, have been released in other ways as well. The vast majority of BIONICLE comics were printed and distributed by the DC Comics company, a division of Warner Bros. Entertainment.

- McDonald's Comic 1: Challenge of the Rahi
- McDonald's Comic 2: Tale of the Toa
- McDonald's Comic 3: Secret of the Swarm
- McDonald's Comic 4: Into the Nest
Lunchables also had a set of promotional comics. They were slightly shorter than the McDonald Promo Comics and were a kind of in-between-scenes for the comic In the Grip of the Morbuzakh, and were actual parts from Trial By Fire.
