Joss Whedon told us not to expect a Dollhouse comic book, and then he gives us one anyway. Tricky, tricky. And what a comic he’s giving us. It has the lovely and nerd-tacular Felicia Day on the cover.

The Dollhouse comic is called “Epitaphs” and describes the events that happened right before “Epitaph One” and “Epitaph Two.” Series writers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen wrote this comic, and as they wrote both previous “Epitaph” episodes – it seems fitting.

The Comic Book Details:

Each Blu-ray and DVD comes with a 28 page exclusive limited edition comic book by Dark Horse Comics. Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, joined by longtime Buffy the Vampire Slayer artist Cliff Richards, take us on an intricate trip through the precise moment when the Active technology went global, and how the protagonists from Epitaph One and Two narrowly avoided death, and worse. Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen wrote the Epitaph episodes of Dollhouse Seasons One and Two, and currently write for the Starz series Spartacus. This is their first work in comics. Artist Cliff Richards has drawn more Joss Whedon-related comics than any other artist, including issues of Buffy Season Eight.”

You’ll find this comic bundled with the Dollhouse season 2 DVD and Blu-rays, which have a release date of Oct. 12, 2010.
