Speed, Toy Story, X-Men, Alien: Resurrection, Roseanne, Parenthood, Superman/Batman. Even outside Buffy, Firefly and Avengers, Joss Whedon has written stacks of scripts, along with many series of comic books. His signature style offers strong women, sudden tragedies, and clever quips. But even more than these, he's known for the pop culture references: Under his watch, Iron Man calls Hawkeye "Legolas," Buffy dresses as Red Riding Hood and snarks, "Back off, Pink Ranger!" Wolverine makes sports metaphors, and Kitty Pryde uses Buffyspeak. Marty from Cabin quotes the X-Files and reads Curious George. Captain Mal has read Coleridge and the Bible but doesn't know the Mona Lisa. Genre-savvy Angel and Spike become their Comic-Con costumes. By now, hundreds of shows recognize the fannish delight these moments bring, offering hundreds of their own nods to Firefly and Buffy. Within this volume are all Whedon's references from AA to zombies, shwarma to Star Wars, from every project - script treatments to shows to one-shot comics, for the truly avid Whedon fans.--Provided by publisher
