Joss Whedon is one of the most prolific writers today. His stories are often distinguishable by strong character development (particularly women in lead roles) and in stories focused on the disenfranchised. Whedon’s mark on popular culture is far reaching and not confined to any one specific genre. As a result, a Whedonverse has been built upon both television and film projects Whedon has worked on, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse, Angel, Much Ado About Nothing, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and even the love/hate reception of Alien: Resurrection. On Friday, May 19, through Sunday, May 21, fans will have the opportunity to converge on the second annual WhedonCon being held at the Warner Center Marriott in Los Angeles, CA.
