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!").Read more ›
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!
Luckily what we have here is an excellent collection 5 of (sadly sometimes too short) stories, featuring all your favorite characters from the original, including the sadly under used Moist getting an origin story!
The artwork is excellent, really brings the characters to life and the stories are well written. Each character looks and acts as you feel they should following the series and the standard of humour is maintained well.
It probably won't replace a sequel, in fact probably makes me want one more, but it's an excellent read. Much recommended.
Of course what is missing is the singing... I'm assuming you'd be expecting that though...
Right here we are, the booka itself is a collection of various ministories set in the dr horrible universe featuring such 'villains' lol as johnny snow and even an appearance by the thoroughbred of sin himself, and the heroic james flames. Along with some favourites. The collectiona themselves are very well illustrated and storys kept true too the universe, another case of whedon genius if youre a fan, if not then this will appeal to all fans of quirky humour or of the whedons writing skills.
The inks and drawings are individual per tale and allow the readers a sense that the drawings are hand lovingly
I hope this convinces every1 to give it a go as its an exciting trip worth a read!
