The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Behind the Pages of Marvel Comics

The Wednesday Club is Geek & Sundry’s weekly talk show chatting about all things comics. On this episode, hosts Matt Key and Amy Dallen were joined by Andrea Towers to talk about what it’s like to work in the Marvel Comics offices.

Andrea went from writing about comics at Entertainment Weekly to working in marketing and public relations for Marvel Comics, and as a longtime friend of the show, Matt and Amy were thrilled to have her on The Wednesday Club sofa. Andrea talked about what she could working behind the comics curtain, from how comic books are marketed to how she landed her dream job.

She also shared a little bit about Geek Girls Don’t Cry, a non-fictional look at fictional women coping with trauma and coming out on the other side stronger, and the lessons we can learn from them.

Life at Marvel keeps Andrea so busy that she doesn’t have a lot of time to read the books that come across her desk, but she did have a few recommendations for recent reading. Take a look at the gallery below for specific recommendations from this episode of The Wednesday Club.

Matt also mentioned Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, a non-fiction book which also reveals what happened in the practically legendary Marvel Bullpen in the 1960s.
