Summary
In J.J. Abrams vs. Joss Whedon, Wendy Sterba compares the parallel careers in film and television of two creative masterminds-pitting one against the other in a light-hearted competition. The author looks back upon the beginnings of both men's careers-Whedon's stint as a writer on Roseanne and Abrams' early scripts for films like Regarding Henry-and forward to their most recent blockbusters, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This books also looks at non-fantasy successes, such as Abrams' series Felicity and Whedon's adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing
