Our Score: 5 out of 5 stars
Any fan of “Dr. Horrible” needs to pick up this book ASAP. It is made for true fans and made with love from its authors. The pages are very colorful and packed with great pictures and illustrations. There are great behind the scenes shots during production. It still surprises me how this little web-series went on to become an Emmy award-winning pop-culture phenomenon. Either way it is one of my favorite series and soundtracks of the last decade easily.
Now let’s get to the goodies, this book comes with exclusive new material from Joss and the “Horrible” team. There are great new photos, which are really sharp and also very crisp. The book plays like the read-a-long with the series, including the full shooting scripts. Also If you are a musically inclined there is also sheet music included for every song. Also mega fans, will enjoy full lyrics for “Commentary: The Musical”.
The further and further I go on this book it just feels like the ultimate fan official book for the ultimate web-series. The book also covers the expansion of the series into pop-culture with toys, fandom and even the awards ceremonies. Also fans are going to love the character bios included even for the minor characters in the series. Although the book doesn’t close with hints about a follow-up series, I know we all still have our hopes set out for that and this book will surely hold you over till then.
