The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Everyone But Batman

The Wednesday Club is Geek & Sundry’s weekly talk show chatting about all things comics. This week, hosts Taliesin Jaffe and Amy Dallen were joined by guest and pop culture critic Joelle Monique to discuss the Bat-Family, Bruce Wayne’s closest allies and second family.

Joelle started reading comics about 10 years ago, and she’s been a lifelong fanatic of Batman The Animated Series. “What makes Gotham great is that the people are authentic, there’s an actual culture there,” she says.

“Gotham is deep,” said Taliesin. “There’s tons of s*** that comes out of Gotham that has nothing to do with Batman.”

There’s so much going on in Gotham, in fact, that Batman has one of the biggest number of allies to help him around the city of all the superheroes. (He can’t be everywhere at once, people.)

The Batman Family includes classic characters like Robin and Batgirl, along with Nightwing, Oracle, Cassandra Cain, Huntress, Batwoman, Spoiler, the Birds of Prey, and Gotham PD allies like Commissioner Gordon, Maggie Sawyer, and Renee Montoya.

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

The hosts also briefly chatted about Jimmy Olsen, Batgirl: Stephanie Brown, the appearance of Bat-Cow in Batman Incorporated, Batgirl of Burnside, Birds of Prey, Grayson, and more.
