Likes to mess with stuffs.


IO9.COM - Joss Whedon. He's bloodthirstier than a hundred vampires. He'll kill off characters just to make a point, or to supply a story beat, or just because his assistant didn't get the right cream cheese for his bagel today. Why is he the grim reaper, and why do we continue supporting him in his murder spree? Find out in this exclusive excerpt from Pop Matters' Joss Whedon: The Complete Companion, written by Kristin M. Barton...

We sniff the air, we don't kiss the dirt.


Great article. Of course I can answer the question in 2 words:

He's mean.

Heh, well, he SAYS he doesn't, and then he says he only really killed off Tara in a really unfair way... Joss, I think you've maybe lost track of your kill count at this point. :P

STORYMARK


Joss' recent take on this:

“I'm, no offense, very tired of being labelled as ‘the guy who kills people.’ Shakespeare (he's this hot new writer) does it way more than me, and everyone's all excited about how he, as it were, holds a mirror up to nature, while I'm like the Jason Voorhees of the writing community. Unfair.”

"Goram it kid, let's frak this thing and go home! Engage!"
