Some fun little short stories set in the Dr. Horrible world. For those not in the know, go watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog first before reading this book. It's these fun shorts Joss Whedon, Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day put together during the Writer's Strike of 2008. Most of these stories were printed before back in 2010 under Dr. Horrible and Other Horrible Stories. This new edition includes a one-shot Joss wrote last year. It's well worth picking up if you haven't ...more

A collection of short stories each focused on different characters from the Doctor Horrible web series. They are mostly written by Zack Whedon, who co-wrote the original series together with Joss, Jed and Maurissa (and wrote a bunch of quality TV on his own, like Halt and Catch Fire, Deadwood and Fringe), so the stories feel like part of the same universe and are enjoyable and fun to read. Last year’s superb Dr. Horrible, Best Friends Forever one-shot is also included here and it’s definitely ...more

It stars Nathan Fillion as the do-gooding but self-aggrandizing hero, Captain Hammer; Neil Patrick Harris as his Nice Guy (tm), wanna-be nemesis, Dr. Evil; and Felicia Day as the kind-hearted but

Plot wise some cute stories, I was not a huge fan of the artwork.
I did not read the script at the end as it was basically the same as the last story.
I think this would work great as an actual live action set of shorts with the original Dr Horrible's blog.
