The Wednesday Club’s Comic Picks: Warren Ellis

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 talked about one of comics’ most prolific and accomplished writers, Warren Ellis.

“I’m a big fan [of Warren Ellis],” said Taliesin. “This is one of those creators who has had such an immense impact on comic books and, honestly, fiction in general. We haven’t really covered anyone like him.”

“He’s a British comic book author,” Amy said, “who broke into the scene on the mid 90s… He bounced around most of the big companies. His work often features very interesting themes of science fiction and transhumanism.”

The first book The Wednesday Club recommended was Marvel’s Nextwave, one of Ellis’s lighter works.

Taliesin is such a big fan that he was even part of a documentary about Ellis’s life and work, Captured Ghosts.

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

The hosts also briefly mentioned Transmetropolitan, Planetary, Ellis’s run on Doctor Strange, Red, Doktor Sleeplessnewuniversal, Moon Knight, and Karnak.
