Not that he wasn’t before, you understand, but his latest creation, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog has simply re-affirmed his standing.  During the Hollywood Writer’s Strike, Joss and a couple of his homies got together and the result is a professional, polished episode that was designed to be broadcast over the ‘Net.

Neil Patrick Harris stars as the wanna-be supervillain Dr. Horrible who secretly pines for Penny (Felicia Day), a sweet girl trying to do good works in an uncaring city.
