    Prelim Review: This is more of a 3.5 for me, but having following Whedon's career for the last 15 years of my life I knew a lot of what was contained in the book. That being said the interviews, essay...

    I have mostly stayed away from scholarly writing on Joss Whedon's work, despite being a huge fan of both Whedon and scholarship (double nerd!). I suppose I picked this up thinking that it would be a l...

    This is a terrific collection of essays regarding the Whedonverse. As a longtime fan, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the many musing about, in particular Buffy, Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Dollhouse and Dr...

  • Stephanie

    (Review originally posted on my blog.)As you might guess from that mouthful of a title, Joss Whedon: The Complete Companion spans the creator’s biggest productions and a number of smaller topics, su...

  • Janet

    I didn't get a lot out of this collection, although I probably would have enjoyed it more if I was as into Whedon's comic book writing as I was his tv series and movies. If you do like his comic book ...
