Joss Whedon always swore he'd never do a Dollhouse comic book, but looks like we'll get one after all. "Epitaphs" tells the story of how some key characters survived the brainpocalypse. It'll be bundled with the season two DVDs.
Here's the official synopsis for the comic book:
Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, joined by longtime Buffy the Vampire Slayer artist Cliff Richards, take us on an intricate trip through the precise moment when the Active technology went global, and how the protagonists from Epitaph One and Two narrowly avoided death, and worse.Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen wrote the Epitaph episodes of Dollhouse Seasons One and Two, and currently write for the Starz series Spartacus. This is their first work in comics. Artist Cliff Richards has drawn more Joss Whedon-related comics than any other artist, including issues of Buffy Season Eight.
The comic's only available with the DVDs, which don't come out until Oct. 12. But you can pick them up early at SDCC, and Whedon and Tancharoen will be signing copies on Friday from 11 AM to noon — not sure if it'll be at the Dark Horse booth or the Fox booth, though.
