Format: Paperback
DOLLHOUSE is easily my favorite Joss Whedon project - and, because I watched it in real time, its premature cancellation crushed me all the more. (Knowing that FIREFLY only got 14 episodes going in made the end a tiny bit easier to bear.) When Amazon recommended DOLLHOUSE VOLUME 1: EPITAPHS, I nearly fell out of my seat with shock and excitement. As someone who doesn't normally read comics, DOLLHOUSE had slipped under my radar. Forever late to the party.

EPITAPHS is a must for anyone who's loved and lost DOLLHOUSE. The five-issue series - reproduced here along with cover art and actor portraits - takes place in 2019, before "Epitaph One" but after "The Hollow Men." (The opening panels show Mag, Zone, and Griff in their previous lives.) Rossum has just unleashed its "thoughtpocalypse" technology that wipes the minds of innocent people, turning them into "butchers" and "wielders" - mindless zombie killers and soldiers programmed to carry out directives: in this case, multiple their numbers and find and kill Echo, whose brain holds the key to creating a program to block the signal.

Caught in Los Angeles, Mag, Zone, and Griff band together to destroy the radio tower that Rossum's using to further spread the signal. Meanwhile, Alpha, several Ivy imprints, Trevor, and Paul are converging on Rossum headquarters in Tucson to find and help Echo steal the technology she needs to develop an inoculant to imprinting.

With an engaging story line, - you could almost picture this as a live action episode - dialog that's true to the characters (Alpha especially), and all your old favorites (Paul!), DOLLHOUSE VOLUME 1: EPITAPHS is quite enjoyable, even if you're not a voracious reader of comic books. Granted, some of the art could use a little work; while the cover art is spot-on - Echo, Alpha, and Mag are immediately recognizable - I can't always say the same for the interior art.

Even so, it's a huge win in my book. More please!

If you wondered what Alpha was up to before he reappeared toward the end of the series, here's your chance to find out. The story is very much like the better episodes of the TV series and the art is excellent. (Alpha looks and "sounds" like Alan Tudyk, as he should of course. That's not always the case in comic adaptations.)

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer Sicurella VINE VOICE on April 23, 2012
Format: Paperback
Why read: Received for review

What impressed me: Epitaphs starts off after the Dollhouse TV series ended, managing to both continue the story as well as remind fans of what went down those last few episodes without rehashing ad nauseum. Fan favorites are easily recognizable, visually as well as through action and dialogue. Dollhouse was a constant build up towards its way too early conclusion and this first volume of Epitaphs gives more of the same - building up to something even bigger.

What disappointed me: Nothing.

Recommended: Dollhouse fans will love this continuation of the story, and it may just pick up new fans along the way.

Continue series: Yes, absolutely.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 24, 2012
Format: Paperback
I only got a chance to watch few a episodes of Dollhouse during it's original run, so I was quite interested in Epitaphs which takes place between the series episodes Epitaph One and Epitaph Two: Return, which were both set in the year 2020

Set in the future, where most of the population has been brainwashed by mental virus delivered through phones. In the process your entire memories are wiped out, but you are reprogrammed to be zombie-mindless killers. A small band of survivors are trying to undone the damage that has been done.

Basically this is filler set in between episodes for those diehard Dollhouse fans, but the plot can be easily followed by new fans as well. The artwork throughout the volume was excellently done, matching the look of all of the actors from the series. The overall dialogue is quirky and the interesting characters keep you turning the pages. I'm sure with time, the Dollhouse comics will become even as popular as Joss Whedon's other comic franchises.

*I would like to than NetGalley and Dark Horse Comics for providing me a copy to review.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dollhouse is one of my favorite shows so when I saw that there was a graphic novel out, I had to get it. This book takes place after the first two seasons, before the Epitaphs episodes. We get to see how Felicia Day's character and her group originally got together. We also glimpse into the world of the survivors of the Dollhouse.

The book starts with the synchronized phone call that started it all. It reminded me of the first volume of Y: The Last Man in that normal people are shown reacting to a sudden apocalyptic action.

I recommend this to any fan of Dollhouse. If you aren't familiar with the tv series, this book probably won't do much for you. I look forward to more comics from this universe. I give this book a 4/5.

The only fault here is that the story is incomplete and volume 2 isn't available as of early 2015. This collection ends on a cliffhanger. If I had known I would have waited until the full story was finished. Other than that, a great continuation of the series.

Found it interesting that terms used in the epitaphs in the tv series were fleshed out and explained here. Tight writing and pretty good graphics. . .but altogeher too short. Need more Epitaphs in the future, to bring it up to the final Epitaph in the series, or beyond.
