Scott Allie has revealed some details of Dark Horse’s upcoming Dollhouse comics. The editor expanded on the recent announcement of more Joss Whedon-related titles from the publisher, including some based on his latest television series. Allie told MTV News that a 20-page mini-comic by married creative team Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen was included in the recently released Dollhouse season two boxset.
“You don’t see a lot of detail about how it happens in the show, so this mini-comic we did for the DVD is an original story by them that shows how the technology went public and turned most of the population into these zombies – or what they refer to as ‘butchers’. People’s brains just get shut off and they become hyper-violent, wreaking havoc on each other and everything around them.”
A one-shot released next April will expand on the mini-comic, and will be followed later in the year by a five-issue miniseries.
“All of the comics that we’re doing take place in the ‘Epitaph’ scenario, the post-apocalyptic environment from those episodes,” he said.
