Joss Whedon’s contribution to 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.

PopMatters, the acclaimed international magazine of cultural criticism, have brought together over 40 contributors to provide a mix of analysis, interpretation and celebration.

Some essays are short reviews that introduce a show or comic or movie to a reader who has never seen/read it. Some are longer, more serious academic articles by internationally known scholars. Some are interviews with actors or writers.

Whedon’s influence on pop culture has been so deep and wide-ranging that it is hard to believe that it is only a decade and a half since the debut of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

This fun, informative book covers all the TV series, movies, and comic books, including:

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Angel
  • Firefly
  • Dollhouse
  • Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
  • Astonishing X-Men
  • The Avengers… and more!

You can find further details of Joss Whedon: the complete companion on the catalogue, available in ‘Catalogues’ on the Library’s website.
