Joss Whedon Planning ‘Dollhouse’ Comic Book?

Taking a look at Joss Whedon’s comic book resume is a bit like listing off his numerous contributions to television. Unfortunately for fans of “Dollhouse,” the creator’s latest endeavor has yet to join “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Serenity” and “Angel” in the center of his proverbial TV-to-comics Venn diagram. Of course, as Whedon readers have come to expect, all it takes is the right idea to get the creator knee-deep in a new project.

Even though no projects are set in stone, Dark Horse Comics’ Senior Managing Editor Scott Allie was able to shed a little more light on the possibility of “Dollhouse” comics at this past weekend’s Baltimore Comic-Con, according to ComicBookResources.

“’Dollhouse? There’s a chance,” Allie explained.

“When Joss first told me he was going to do the ’Dollhouse’ show, I said ’Well, I know you don’t want to do comic right away, but whenever you want to do them, we want to do them,'” continued Allie. “He said, ’Yeah, I just don’t really see how it’s a comic, but if we’re gonna do it, I’ll do it with you guys.’ And then at San Diego this year, he said ’I know how we can do it as a comic.’ And that’s where we left it.”

Allies’ insights seem to bolster Whedon’s own statements from last month, when in an interview with Complex the creator seemed in favor of a “Dollhouse” series provided Dark Horse could track down an artist capable of capturing star Eliza Dushku’s likeness.

Given Jo Chen and other artists’ ability to capture Dushku’s past slayer visage as Faith in Dark Horse’s “Buffy” series, Dark Horse isn’t in a bad place to start presenting qualified candidates.

What do you think “Dollhouse” fans? Is the series destined for a comic book adaptation, or is it best suited for the small screen? Any picks for artists who could meet Whedon’s Dushku standards?
