Dr. Horrible and Other Horrible Stories
If you haven't treated yourself to the Dr. Horrible Sing Along Blog, you must.
Dr. Horrible and Other Horrible Stories, however, isn't worth the 20 minutes it took me to read it. You get a deeper look into the origins of some of the main characters, and how they became the way they are in the Blog, but this isn't something you actually needed.
I would go so far as to say that the comic actually made Felicia Day's character, Penny, completely unlikeable. They took her bleeding heart sensibilities and amplified them to the nth degree.
The other stories weren't as bad, but they don't hold a candle to the original video.
If you were going to spend 20 minutes murdering your neighbor, you should read this graphic novel instead... but you should save the $10 and check it out from your local library.
If you were going to spend $10 on a large Pizza Hut pizza, and 20 minutes eating it, you should just stick to your plan... fatty.
