MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH)-- The new television series called "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." debuts later this month on ABC. And one of the co-creators of the show is currently being honored at one local university.
"Joss Whedon is a graduate of Wesleyan University and I would say that he's one of the most influential people in pop culture today," said Andrea McCarty, curator.
On the grounds of the Middletown Institution, Mr. Whedon once walked, visitors can follow in his footsteps at a new exhibit called "Joss Whedon; From Buffy to Bard."
"One of the things we have is the student film and video poster that he designed for the 1986 screening of the end of the year student films," said McCarty.
It's a collection that goes beyond Joss Whedon's professional accomplishments as a writer/director and also pays homage to those that helped inspire him.
A picture of his former Professor Jeanine Basinger is displayed proudly at the exhibit's entrance.
"She is the chair of the department, the founder of Wesleyan Cinema Archives and profound influence on his work," said McCarty.
Work that can be seen in the form of the memorabilia that fills up the walls showcasing everything from his days on the set of the Avengers to his personal notes that show his then idea's for the hit series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
"It's a riot to read through them. One of them, I think is written on a blue exam book, which those of you who were in school before the digital age, long form exams," said McCarty.
To see some of the exhibit, you're actually going to have to come out there in person because of some legal agreements this university has with some major box offices.
All you have to do though is get in touch with our friend Andrea and you can see it for yourself.
