Dr. Horrible sells out! The Dark Horse trade paperback is getting a second print run. On its first month of release, the collection stormed in at number two on the Top 100 Graphic Novels list.

I still think Dr Horrible is a much bigger brand than Dollhouse. Those guys and gals are sitting on $.
All part of his plans for world domination. Phase 1 (have bestselling trade paperback of "fictional" exploits) - Complete.
Whoa. That's awesome.

Dark Horse really came out swinging and is going head-to-head with DC comics on this list (I think Marvel has the most titles).

I'm not surprised, this was a wonderful book, I had wanted to buy more copies to send as gifts to friends who I had gotten excited about watching it online. It is a must have book!
I was pleasantly surprised last night when I went to purchase Ex Machina from Brian K. Vaughan and found the Dr Horrible TPB right next to it! I was very gleeful.

All this is definitely fodder for some serious speculation. This race is all going to be about winning the PR campaign. Well, Dr. Horrible has stepped up to the post now. It's a tough field. He's up against Snake Bite and Professor Normal, although here in the States, I think Fake Thomas Jefferson has been stirring up the most buzz. But do you think he is really ready to play the ponies? Going head to head with Bad Horse on his own turf... and from an inside position too... I think he's a stayer though. And he's got the motivation to go the distance even after the initial ground conditions seemed bottomless.

PHASE 2: Fan group, The Redcoats, launches massive campaign for "Dr. Horrible for a New Quo" and raises thousands of dollars for his ongoing effort.

PHASE 3: A frozen yogurt franchise in every drugstore. (Frozen brains are easier to lead.)

PHASE 4: A Dr. Horrible bobble head doll in 76.8739% of the vehicles on the road that says, "The world's a mess." every time one hits a pothole.

PHASE 5: Dictatorship Attained. Billy shaves off all his body hair and puts on a black uniform. He declares the use of hammers illegal in his first act of change for the "betterment of all humankind."
I initially read this a bit differently, and thought, "What, he sold the rights to 'Laundry Day' to Tide or something?"
I still don't have this.
BreathesStory, I love that!
Yeah, very cool (the frozen brains point in particular made me laugh ;). Except there can be only one Quo. This is the law.
ManEnoughToAdmitIt: I initially read this a bit differently, and thought, "What, he sold the rights to 'Laundry Day' to Tide or something?"

; > Yeah, that's where I went, too. My heart fell. I was so afraid I'd hafta hear the Doc say that the status *was* quo.

BreathesStory, you makea me to laugh. ; > Especially, with Saje, at the frozen brains thingy. I think we may have our fair share of those here in the States. I'm hoping a few will thaw out before Election Day...

I think Phase 3 might be profits, and "underpants" should prolly be in there somewhere...

I just bought this, btw, and will now go read it.
"the collection stormed in at number two! Whoo-hoo!
Thank you. :-) I'm glad you liked it.
This is me being out of the loop. Is this a graphic rendition of Dr. Horrible or a spin-off story?
Spinoff stories. It collects the Captain Hammer, Moist, and Penny online comics; the Dr. Horrible one-shot that came out last year; and an original story about the Evil Leauge of Evil.
