Joss ranked #5 in "Top Celebrity Comic book Geek" poll. First place was won by Nicolas Cage.

Edit: Looks like this originates from a Pulp Secret list from back in April. I had a quick look at the archives, and don't see it, but apologies if this has been submitted before.

The top ten are as follows:

1. Nicolas Cage
2. Kevin Smith
3. Jerry Seinfeld
4. Rosario Dawson
5. Joss Whedon
6. Guillermo Del Toro
7. Samuel L. Jackson
8. Patton Oswalt
9. Bill Hader
10. Brian Posehn

No Seth Green? He's just an action figure geek, then?

Guess Nick Cage does deserve #1, naming his kid after a comic character....
I guess I am not much of a geek because I have no idea who Bill Hader or Brian Posehn are. I am also too lazy to google them.
Bill Hader is on SNL and he's absolutely hilarious as one of the cops in Superbad. Brian Posehn is a stand up comedian. I believe he was on Just Shoot Me a while back, as well. I had no idea that they were into comic books!
Guess Nick Cage does deserve #1, naming his kid after a comic character....

Not to mention himself (the 'Cage' is from [Marvel Comics character] Luke Cage because he didn't want to use the family name).

ETA: As the other linked article says. Consider this, like, spare knowledge ;).

Rosario Dawson is a great ambassador for comics fandom, very articulate and funny. Doesn't hurt that she's attractive and female either.

For some reason I never pegged Jerry Seinfeld as a comics fan, maybe because *hangs head* i've only seen a few episodes of the show - it's one of my big "must eventually watch" shows.

Heh, ta Simon, those were pretty funny (and remarkably unadvertisey for advertisements).
Jerry Seinfeld, bleh. Superman is the lamest character ever. Unless Frank Miller does for Supes as he did for Batman, that would be awesome.
Interesting list. It's actually impressive that Joss made 5th without really being an on screen personality.

Brian Poshen is on the Sarah Silverman Program and wrote a comic called "The Last Christmas" which is both hilarious and disturbing.

As for how lame Superman is-Read Grant Morrison's "All-Star Superman"-Awesome.

Yeah, the only female on the list.

*gets mysteriously cold and gone*
