The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Demonology

The Wednesday Club is Geek & Sundry’s weekly talk show chatting about all things comics. On this week’s episode, hosts Matt Key and Amy Dallen were joined by Wonder Woman Markeia McCarty on Halloween to chat about comics featuring characters demonic and devilish.

Matt is The Wednesday Club‘s resident theology expert, and he kicked off the show by relaying some of the historical connotations behind the words “demon” and “hell.”

“A lot of the modern-day conceptions that we have of hell, of the way that Satan works, of the hierarchy of demons, and all that stuff–that’s all [from] apocryphal books, Church Fathers, or Milton’s Paradise Lost,” he said.

Matt, Amy, and Markeia talked about God and gods, devils and demons, and, of course, comic books that have them all.

Take a look at the gallery below for specific recommendations from the episode.

The hosts also chatted about John Constantine and Hellblazer, which was the focus of a recent episode, along with Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul, contentious Spider-Man story arc One More Day, Christopher Priest’s Black Panther, Doctor Fate, 100 Demon Dialogues, Green Lanterns #15, Green Lanterns #47, Hellboy, The Demon by Jack Kirby, and Cursed Comics Cavalcade.
