The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: True Romance

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 Michelle Nguyen to chat about their favorite romance comics and manga.

Michelle, Taliesin, and Amy gushed about their favorite romantic manga from the 1980s to today, and mentioned some of their favorite comics both mainstream and indie that also make them feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Taliesin talked about his love for Kimagure Orange Road, a romantic comedy manga and later anime that focused on a love triangle between a boy name Kyosuke and two girls, Madoka and Hikaru. Kyosuke also has ESP powers, but those are mostly tangential to the story, which at heart focuses on the trio’s relationships with each other.

The Wednesday Club trio also chatted about a few of their other favorites from Japan and Western comics.

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

Taliesin, Michelle, and Amy also talked briefly about Scott Pilgrim, Cowgirl Romances, Young Romance, Princess Jellyfish, Love and RocketsSunstone, and the recently released The Secret Loves of Geeks.
