On May 1st (May 4th in the UK), Titan Books will be releasing Joss Whedon: The Complete Companion. This looks like the bible for Whedon fans.
Joss Whedon’s importance in contemporary pop culture can hardly be overstated, but there has never been a book providing a comprehensive survey of his career as a whole – until now. The Complete Companion covers every aspect of the Whedonverse through insightful essays and interviews, including fascinating conversations with key collaborators Jane Espenson and Tim Minear.
Over 40 contributors have been brought together by PopMatters, the acclaimed international magazine of cultural criticism, to provide an irresistible mix of analysis, interpretation and sheer celebration. Whether you’re a student looking for critical approaches to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or a Browncoat who follows Nathan Fillion on Twitter (or, let’s face it, both) there is plenty here to enjoy.
Covers all the TV series, movies, and comic books, including:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Fray, Astonishing X-Men, The Avengers... and more!
With the sheer amount of Whedon fanboys (myself included), I'm a little surprised something this all-encompassing hasn't come out sooner. While other guides have come and gone detailing pieces of Whedon's career, Joss Whedon: The Complete Companion looks to be the first that includes all the pop culture bits that fall into the overall Whedonverse.
