SFX Whedon Special


Worlds Of Whedon

We don’t think we’re making an overstatement when we say that Joss Whedon is the most important creative force to emerge in sci-fi and fantasy TV during SFX ’s 201-issue lifetime. From the vampire slaying of Buffy to the interplanetary misbehaviour of Firefly , Whedon has become one of the most crucial, influential voices in pop culture. A good subject, then, for the latest SFX Special Edition.

In fact, we’ve decided that Joss is such a worthy recipient of the Special Edition treatment that we’ve devoted two whole magazines to him. In your Worlds Of Whedon pack, you get a features magazine crammed full of new interviews and fun stuff, while The Complete Joss Whedon is brimming with over 300 reviews, featuring his movie, TV and web work. Don’t believe the hype? Here’s what you get for your £7.99:


In features magazine Worlds Of Whedon you can look forward to:

  • A massive, exclusive 14-page interview with Joss Whedon, in which he talks about the early days, the cancellations, The Avengers , Ripper , Serenity 2 and loads more.
  • Brand new, exclusive interviews with 11 stars who found fame in Joss Whedon shows, including Eliza Dushku, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Charisma Carpenter and Adam Baldwin.
