The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Misfit Toys

The Wednesday Club is Geek & Sundry’s weekly talk show chatting about all things comics. On this week’s episode, hosts Matt KeyTaliesin Jaffe, and Amy Dallen were joined by arch-nemesis friends Jody Houser and Eric Campbell for a special holiday episode filled with nostalgia and TOYS. 

Comic books and toys go hand in hand, and not just because they both fill us with joy. Action figure costume changes often demand new costumes in the comic books to help sell toys, and comic collectibles range in price from affordable to premium, lifelike figures that cost hundreds.

Matt, Amy, Taliesin, Jody, and Eric chatted about their favorite comic book toys from childhood–many opened on a Christmas morning–to present day, in a cozy group discussion that’s perfect for the holidays. Well, cozy with a few seconds of terror courtesy of Taliesin.

While chatting about action figures and perusing Taliesin’s one-of-a-kind collection, the hosts and guests revealed their own personal and sentimental favorite comic book series, recommended reads, and more. (Spoiler: Lots of 90s X-Men books.)

The end of the entertaining evening was summed up best by Jody on Twitter.
