Review - Dollhouse Volume 1: Epitaphs

Dollhouse Volume 1: Epitaphs

PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics
PUB DATE: April 11, 2012
ISBN: 9781595828637

I only got a chance to watch few a episodes of Dollhouse during it’s original run, so I was quite interested in Epitaphs which takes place between the series episodes Epitaph One and Epitaph Two: Return, which were both set in the year 2020

Set in the future, where most of the population has been brainwashed by mental virus delivered through phones. In the process your entire memories are wiped out, but you are reprogrammed to be zombie-mindless killers. A small band of survivors are trying to undone the damage that has been done.

Basically this is filler set in between episodes for those diehard Dollhouse fans, but the plot can be easily followed by new fans as well. The artwork throughout the volume was excellently done, matching the look of all of the actors from the series. The overall dialogue is quirky and the interesting characters keep you turning the pages. I’m sure with time, the Dollhouse comics will become even as popular as Joss Whedon’s other comic franchises. 

*I would like to than NetGalley and Dark Horse Comics for providing me a copy to review.
