The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Ultimate Bendis

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 guest Phil LaMarr to talk about the prolific and influential comics writer Brian Michael Bendis.

Brian Michael Bendis has been a Marvel mainstay for over 15 years as the writer behind the creation of characters like Jessica Jones, Daisy Johnson, Maria Hill, and Miles Morales. It was recently announced that he’ll be moving over to DC Comics to write for them exclusively, and fans are anxiously waiting to see how the DC universe will change in his hands.

“It’s one of those interesting moments where a huge shift is about to happen on a fundamental level in comics,” said Taliesin.

While the hosts didn’t want to speculate too much what Bendis’s involvement with the characters of DC Comics might bring, they took a look at his landmark Marvel work to get a small hint of what the future may hold for Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the DC universe.

Take a look at the gallery below for specific recommendations from this week’s episode.

Taliesin, Phil, Matt, and Amy also chatted briefly about titles like Jinx, Powers, House of M, The New AvengersIronheart, and more, but when a creator has such an incredible body of work as Brian Michael Bendis does, there’s just not enough time to talk about them all.
