I picked up the Dollhouse season 2 DVD box set when it came out Tuesday, and it came bundled with a 21-page mini-comic from Dark Horse. I have scanned for you 7 pages plus the cover.

For those of you who didn't watch the show (RIP, Dollhouse), it was a Joss Whedon trip about a secret L.A. facility in which Actives have their consciousnesses wiped, original personalities saved to hard drive, and neurotech genius Topher designs and uploads a new personality for what they call "engagements" - life coaching, super-ninja action, or romance, whatever. When the engagements are over the new persona is wiped, leaving them in a passive "doll" state. We get to know the staff of the L.A. Dollhouse and about a half-dozen Dolls, chief among them Echo (Eliza Dushku) who quickly shows signs of having more going on in the cranium than Dolls are supposed to. This makes her more and more important as the series goes on.

Season 1 was supposed to end with ep 13, a series-capper in case the show wasn't renewed, but Fox declined to air it. "Epitaph One" was included in the s1 DVD set as an extra, and it quickly became a critical favorite, which helped Dollhouse get its second season. A "10 Years Later" flash-forward, it showed a L.A. ravaged by an apocalypse brought about by the Dollhouse tech. Most everyone has been mindwiped by a signal carried through phone waves, leaving them either "dumbshows" (dolls, basically) or "butchers." A few "actuals" are just trying to survive, and we follow a small band of them into what remains of the Dollhouse. There they learn through the chair some of how the apocalypse came about; people start getting killed; one of their band turns out to be not what they appear; and they load up a body with Echo's original personality Caroline to lead them to the cast-led Resistance. In Season 2 the L.A. crew comes to realize this apocalypse could be the inevitable end-point of their actions and work to prevent it; the series ended with "Epitaph Two," a return to the 10-years-later reality, which comes to pass despite their efforts.

The mini-comic is a slice-of-life following several characters through the events of 10:07 a.m., when the Neuropocalypse struck L.A.

Story by series scribes Jed Whedon and Marissa Tsncharoen, art by Cliff Richards. What'cha think? I'd buy a series following from this - though Dark Horse's work continuing the Buffy and Angel series haven't really wowed me.

Greetings True Believers!

Here are scans from Daken: Dark Wolverine #2. It's part of the "Wolverine Goes to Hell" storyline.

I can actually see Daken/Mystique and that's what makes it creepy.

My smallest cousin, who is nine (I think), visited a couple of weeks ago. When he left, he did not take his Beano.

I don't blame him, actually. Even the Numskulls strip was no good.

But! Inside this Beano, on one flimsy page, was a quiz. I love quizzes. Maybe you love quizzes! Let's begin. Watch out! It's SUPER (geddit) hard!

Don't cheat! Answer in the comments?
