Dollhouse: Epitaphs (Volume 1) by Jed Whedon

Dollhouse: Epitaphs (Volume 1) by Jed Whedon
2012, Dark Horse
Series: Book 1 of Dollhouse: Epitaphs

Synopsis: The Rossum Corporation''s Dollhouse technology has gone viral with a synchronized phone call that wiped the minds of everyone it reached, turning them into mindless killers. Those who avoided the call - including show favorites Echo, Alpha, Mag, Zone, and Griff - must try to survive in the sudden apocalypse and be wary of Rossum''s expansive technological reach. This is only the beginning!

Why read: Received for review

What impressed me: Epitaphs starts off after the Dollhouse TV series ended, managing to both continue the story as well as remind fans of what went down those last few episodes without rehashing ad nauseum. Fan favorites are easily recognizable, visually as well as through action and dialogue. Dollhouse was a constant build up towards its way too early conclusion and this first volume of Epitaphs gives more of the same - building up to something even bigger.

What disappointed me: Nothing.

Recommended: Dollhouse fans will love this continuation of the story, and it may just pick up new fans along the way.

Continue series: Yes, absolutely.
