This headline is exactly the same as the headline on the article I’m linking to. You’d think I would’ve tried to come up with a different, new headline. You thought wrong.

It’s basically just Whedon (the Buffy guy) and Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, etc., who’s now writing for Lost, and doing an arc of the Buffy comics) talking about how they work, stuff they like, what it’s like to write clever dialogue, and so forth. I don’t quite understand how the conversation is taking place — it doesn’t sound like spoken speech so much as a long e-mail trail, or IMing. But maybe they really do talk like that:

When I was in college, I was belittling the woman who later become my wife for not knowing who Boba Fett was, and she responded by asking me if I knew who the Prime Minister of Israel was. Surprisingly? Not Mon Mothma.

At any rate, they’re very funny. One wishes one were as clever as they. But one is not.
