Book Description

21 Sep 2010
Based on the Emmy Award-winning web series Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, this collection of stories written by Zack Whedon (Deadwood, Fringe) chronicles some of the earliest adventures in the lives of archenemies Captain Hammer and Dr. Horrible. This anthology solves many unanswered questions left over from the show. For instance: What event inspired Dr. Horrible to become the world's greatest criminal mastermind? Why is Penny, the beautiful girl from the Laundromat, still single? How can you, the reader, be like blustering do-gooder Captain Hammer? And why is Horrible's sidekick, Moist, so... um... well, you'll find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Horrible without the music? 17 Sep 2010
Let's start of with telling you what's wrong with this comic book...there's no music. This is my only complaint but considering that this is a comic book it's not a very big one.
This tell various tales from the Dr. Horrible universe...such as Moist's origin and why Penny's single. It's has all the humor of the webseries and the artwork is spot on.
This is a great addition for any Dr. Horrible fan but it does make you want the sequel even more!

"Bad horse, bad horse, bad horse, he's bad..." Ahem. Sorry, you caught me rocking out to some music from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog there. Good times. You know, I think that possibly everything that Joss Whedon does gets turned into a comic - Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse (yes there was a mini-comic in the DVD case. I'm a nerd)... And so it's no surprise that we go so very very easily from Bad Horse to Dark Horse, Dark Horse Comics that is.

This so very much had the potential to be bad, and if you've never seen the web series itself then you may be confused... but that's not my problem. Who are these strange people? Why do we care what someone called Penny was doing before we met her in a laundrette? Why is Captain Hammer such a tool? Oh... ahem... yes I've only just got the joke.

Fact is, or at least the fact as I define it, is that each of these five stories - featuring early events from the lives of Captain Hammer, Dr. Horrible's sidekick who goes by the name and description of Moist, Penny, The Evil League of Evil, and of course the bad Doctor himself - is genuinely amusing, great fun, and illuminates characters that you always knew you wanted to spend more time with.

The blurb on the back puts it well: "...it leaves you wanting more of this universe, these characters, as Whedon's worlds tend to make people do". Of course there were three Whedons involved in creating this world, and this comic was written by Zack Whedon, who is just as good a writer as his more famous brother... he tells us.

The first story introduces us to Captain Hammer's homespun philosophy, which is not really something you should teach in school ("Have a friend that excels in math and science? Report him!").

5.0 out of 5 stars if you liked Dr horrible you'll love this 23 Oct 2010
By David
it is a shame Dr horrible has still not been released on DVD over here but at least we can enjoy this graphic novel which adds to the story of the web series and is a fantastic addition to the series. I am sure all Whedon fans will love it too

5.0 out of 5 stars A PhD in awesomeness! 15 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a huge fan of the source material, I was really excited when this finally arrived at my door. Containing a selection of "origin" stories of the characters in the amazing Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog. Whilst the charm of the source hasn't been fully captured here, enough of it remains to make this a fantastic, albeit short, read. One thing which struck me was the amount of referencing to the video, with plenty of foreshadowing or neat little nods, this is definitely a companion piece rather than a standalone comic, but quite frankly, if you haven't already seen the musical then you really need to re-evaluate how you spend your free time!

5.0 out of 5 stars great for any D.r horrible fan 19 May 2014
By doom
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i bought this as a gift for my twin and she loved it. being a big fan of Joss Whedon and the doctor horrible's sing along blog, she really appreciated this gift and told me that the quality was great with shiny pages and cool drawings. books a little thin though and so it can be read very quickly but great to put on a shelf as fandom merchandise.
