The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Future Imperfect

The Wednesday Club is Geek & Sundry’s weekly talk show chatting about all things comics. This week, hosts Taliesin Jaffe, Amy Dallen, and Matt Key were joined by Whitney Moore to talk about post-apocalyptic stories told in comic books.

Whitney Moore has stopped by The Wednesday Club before to talk about metal comics, and with her show Thrashtopia currently on Alpha, she’s something of an expert on the apocalypse. Together with Matt, Taliesin, and Amy, the four happily chatted about what happens after the end of the world.

“The interesting thing that you get when you look at someone’s vision of the world ending and what they think survives,” said Amy, “you learn so much… You get a very distinct idea of what will survive and what the essential qualities are.”

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

The Walking Dead is one obvious choice for reading about trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, but the hosts also mentioned lesser-known books like Y the Last Man, FreakAngels, Batman: No Man’s LandRover Red Charlie, Lazarus, Gerbil in An Apocalyptic Wasteland, and Battle Angel Alita.
