It was nearly three years ago when Neil Patrick Harris once again donned the title of Doctor for a role in a Joss Whedon web series about a guy with a blog and a love interest who likes to sing and wants to be evil.
Since then, the critically-acclaimed, Streamy Award-winning Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has (thanks to top-notch performances, an amazing storyline, beautiful production values, and the good people of the Whedonverse) maintained a top position on the iTunes charts, spawned a successful comic book spin-off, launched a DVD complete with fan-made Evil League of Evil applications, and most recently, released a companion to the web series in the form of a book.
This week Titan Books published Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog: The Book, complete with an uncut version of the script, behind the scenes photos (including shots from the First Annual Streamy Awards), annotated script pages, Joss Whedon’s original lyrics, commentaries from the actors involved in production, and sheet music for the entire score. It’s selling well.
Dr. Horrible: The Book currently ranks as the 54 Top Seller in Books on Amazon, climbing up from its 92 position yesterday. It would appear all homines non boni seriose are buying a copy.
