The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Gerry Duggan and Wallace Wood

In memory of Marie Severin, 1929 – 2018

The Wednesday Club is Geek & Sundry’s weekly talk show chatting about all things comics. This week, hosts Amy Dallen, Matt Key, and Taliesin Jaffe were joined by renowned comic book writer Gerry Duggan to talk about his career and the main topic of the day, legendary artist Wallace “Wally” Wood.

Gerry Duggan is a writer of both creator-owned books and most notably for an incredible, legendary Deadpool run for Marvel. “I blundered into the Deadpool business,” Gerry said modestly, “and managed to make a career of it.”

The Wednesday Club hosts not only asked Gerry about his personal history with comic books, but also for tips for breaking into the industry as a writer or artist.

Gerry also stopped by to talk about Wallace Wood, an artist and later writer who worked in comics with both Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, along with a notable stint as a founding artist at MAD Magazine. His bold pencil and ink work stands out for its stunning detail, and his legendary Daredevil run marks the first appearance of the hero’s red suit.

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

Gerry and The Wednesday Club hosts also talked about books like Hawkeye Vs. DeadpoolHouse of Secrets, Taliesin’s beloved Vampirella, Wood’s work on Doctor Doom, and Gerry’s ashcan comic Dead Rabbit.
