|The evil genius at Comic Con 2010|
When asked which character was the toughest to kill off in one of his shows, Joss said:
I actually find it refreshing... delightful.... vaguely arousing....
Actually, 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.
Also, probably Buffy's Mom.
Come to think of it, of all the characters he's killed off at random I think Buffy's Mom was the saddest for me too.
