whats up with whedon

If you're a fan of Buffy or Firefly (or possibly Angel), you might've wondered what Joss Whedon has been up to lately... as it happens, Heaps!

He has continued both series as comics. Comics are not library-friendly but luckily they are available in graphic novel format. Buffy continues in Long way home (also called season 8) and you can follow the Serenity crew in Those left behind.

What else? There is a new TV series in production called Dollhouse due to screen in the US in January next year.He has also written 2 movies - Goners (currently shelved) and Cabin in the Woods (given the green light by MGM this week).

Heres a special treat that Joss created during the US writer's strike. Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog is a 40 minute 3 part musical comedy produced for the Internet. Part 1 will be available on July 15 (possibly our July 16). Part 2 will be released on 17th July and part 3 on the 19th. They will be available to watch for free until 20th July. Set your reminder now!

I've seen Dr Horrible and LOL. What a hoot! The Whedon brothers have created a great (slightly insane) show. Can't forget that classic line by Nathan Fillion's Captain Hammer in Act 1 "It's curtains for you Dr Horrible! Lacy, gently wafting curtains". I loved the song "Man's gotta do what a man's gotta do". Neil Patrick Harris is great!

I have to admit I had a slight feeling that I was in someone's bizarre dream, especially when the Deadwood cowboys jumped in, but I loved it! It's now only available though iTunes.
