Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Revisiting the cast of characters from the award-winning web musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, this volume fleshes out some of the background. For example, we learn the damp origins of the good doctor’s sidekick, Moist; we gain some insight into Penny’s charitable nature; and we get to see a glimpse of what made Billy into the formidable evil Doctor he is today. Not to worry; there are appearances of the heroically chiseled Captain Hero and the Evil League of Evil and its diabolical leader, Bad Horse. We even get to see some new faces like the Captain’s teammates on the Council of Champions, the wannabe hero Johnny Snow, and the dastardly Fake Thomas Jefferson. Whedon (Joss’ brother) hits all of the right notes, with punchy writing that is loaded with humor and well-placed snark, and finely tuned characterizations. Likewise, all of the artists turn in stellar work that flows nicely through the transitions. Fans of the original Sing-Along Blog and other die-hard Whedon-ites will, of course, feel compelled to read this book; but it’s a winner that will appeal even beyond this crowd. Provided you can pry it out of their hands. Grades 9-12. --Tina Coleman

Format: Paperback
No one would describe this comic collection as "life-changing" or "captivating" or "an epic of epic epicness," but there are certainly moments of delight in its fleeting 80 pages.

All of the stories here take place before the events of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, providing additional (though usually tangential) backstory. How did Dr. Horrible decide to become evil? Where did Moist get his, uh, superpower from? Each story is bite-sized and self-contained. None really has any depth, but all of them are at least somewhat entertaining.

Don't skip the introduction, which is quite possibly the funniest page of the book.

I'm a huge fan of the Whedon clan and their various works and of the actors in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog so buying this was a no brainer. The only problem I had with it is that it was far to short for the price. I rated it 5 stars despite the shortness because I found it hilarious and it provided very valuable insight into the lives and motivations of several of the characters. The artwork is also excellent! It is important to note that this is actually a collection of 5 stories that were previously shown elsewhere.

This is a great extension of stories if you love Dr. horrible and the other characters. This book is not a rehashing of the story that was on TV but a series of shorts that gives you more insight and fun. Great little read. I just wish it were longer!

Very funny and interesting book! Definitely worth it if you love the blog as much as I do! It is pretty short though so keep that in mind.

It's a comic! It's Doctor Horrible! It's a musical without the music! Honestly, if you're into Doctor Horrible, then you need this book.

I wish there were more of these comics. The Dr. Horrible universe has a lot of potential for other stories, and has strength in that it isn't overly mined for them. Still, a few more wouldn't hurt. These back stories add in a nice depth from the original musical.
