Joss Whedon The Biography HC (2014 Chicago Review Press) comic books
1st printing. By Amy Pascale. Foreword by Nathan Fillion.

This biography follows his development from a creative child and teenager, through his early successes - which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television and film - to his breakout turn as the creator, writer, and director of the Buffy television series and beyond.
