Captain Hammer: Be Like Me!

July 17th, 2008 by

If you’re not already watching Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, then get your butt on over there, and check it out. Acts I and II are already available, and Act III is set to be released on Saturday. Susie posted about Dr. Horrible quite a while ago, but now it’s finally here, and by all reports it’s AWESOME.

It was so great, in fact, that the site went down due to high traffic the first night, and they had to switch servers to get it back up and running.

Anyway, Captain Hammer, who is Dr. Horrible’s arch nemesis, (played by Nathan Fillion of Firefly fame) has his own comic, which you can read on Dark Horse’s myspace page. It’s pretty awesome, and I actually really dig the art, drawn by Eric Canete, which is almost crayon-like at times.

You can also buy some Dr. Horrible swag, but the Captain Hammer shirts aren’t nearly as cool as the style he wears in the comic. (I’d totally buy a shirt if it looked more like the comic.)

    The 3rd and final act was posted a couple of days ago (both on the website and on iTunes), and I’ve watched them all several times now. So good! There were a lot of scenes that were reminiscent of the Buffy Musical episode, also written and directed by Joss. He has said that he’s always been a fan of musicals, and basically taught himself the rudiments of composition and spent his summer break with Buffy cast members to pull that one episode together. I am very glad to see him continue to apply those hard-won skills to new characters that are so easy to latch on to. Of course now I want more. MORE!!!

    Looking more closely at Joss’s Master Plan, I found out that the free streaming version of Dr. Horrible will disappear after today, but it will still be available for a small fee on iTunes. We should expect a DVD with many extras later on- yay!
