Dr. Horrible Comic Live & Soundtrack Coming Soon
August 30, 2008 by Kath Skerry
Fans of Dr. Horrible (which you should all be) can now check out the first installment of the Dr. Horrible Webcomics now online here. This issue, “Captain Hammer: Be Like Me! Nemesis of Dr. Horrible” was written by Dr. Horrible co-writer Zack Whedon.
Whedon’s next webcomic will focus on Moist. “I’m interested in exploring how Moist became Moist,” Whedon said. “It’ll be ‘Moist: Humidity Rising.’ He is so far from making it into the Evil League of Evil, because he really isn’t that bad at all.” (Instead, Moist is in the Henchman’s Union, because he accumulated enough hours “assisting evil people, and inconveniencing people. It doesn’t take much,” Whedon said.)
Seems that the Dr. Horrible team created back stories for all the characters including all the members of the Evil League of Evil. We might expect webcomics focused on Bad Horse and Fake Thomas Jefferson in the future. Fingers crossed.
And in other fantastic news, the Dr. Horrible soundtrack will be available for download on iTunes beginning September 2. “The soundtrack is rapidly approaching,” Whedon said. “And all those cut-offs, where the songs would just end,” such as on “Freeze Ray,” when Neil Patrick Harris sings, “I will stop…” just as he’s interrupted and forced to stop singing, “they will be on there as they are on the show. They’re just in a much higher quality, and no sound effects. I sing along to everything and it’ll be weeks before I can stop. It’s driven me mad. Luckily, I can still hold down a job.”
As someone who listens on a daily basis (no joke) to a homemade Dr. Horrible soundtrack, I must say I’m quite excited to download the real track starting Tuesday.
