The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: SDCC 2018 Wrap Up

The Wednesday Club is Geek & Sundry’s weekly talk show chatting about all things comics. This week, hosts Matt Key, Taliesin Jaffe, and Amy Dallen compared the books and goodies they picked up, as well as their experiences at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2018.

Did we mention that the Eisner Awards are held every year at SDCC, and anyone with a badge can get in?

Are you wondering just what all the hubbub about this one comic convention is all about? The Wednesday Club has you covered.

All three hosts are veterans of SDCC, and admit the crowds make it an adventure that’s not for everyone. “I get a lot out of [Comic-Con],” said Taliesin. “I got a lot out of it back when I was a fan, I’ve been a dealer there, I used to work a booth there, I’ve been a panelist.”

Matt, Amy, and Taliesin made time in their busy Comic-Con schedules to hit the show floor and take a look at the art and comics for sale. They discovered independent books, new artists to follow, and even found the time to sit on a Wednesday Club panel to a packed room.

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

Our intrepid hosts also chatted about titles like Calexit, Shade the Changing Man, Monstress, Kill Your Boyfriend/Vimanarama, Shop Class, Gay Comics #19, and more.

Bonus clip: Taliesin can’t even with this gift (X-Force #75) Amy picked up at the convention for him.
