Wayne Hall

Wayne Hall creates the Wayne's Comics Podcast. He’s interviewed Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, John Layman, Kyle Higgins, Phil Hester, Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray, David Petersen, Christos Gage, Mike Grell, and Matt Kindt. Each episode also includes reviews, news and previews. On this site each week, he writes his "Comics Portal" column (general comics comments and previews) and reviews comics.

On Friday, MajorSpoilers.com’s Head Honcho Stephen Schleicher wrote the following: “Diamond Comic Distributors has announced DC Comics took the top spot once again in September for comics released in the direct market. Is this the sign of a major market change, or is the apocalypse upon us all!?” Given the reaction of some of my Marvel friends, I’d say the latter. I’ve had to give some the local comics suicide hotline number! Sheesh!

I can’t blame Greg Capullo for wanting to stretch his wings after 50 or so wonderful issues of Batman with Scott Snyder, as great as they were! Also, when Mark Millar comes a-callin’, you’d best answer! Still, I look at Mr. Millar as I do Grant Morrison: When he’s great, he’s excellent, but when he’s not so hot, he blows chunks, in my opinion.

Crossovers sell! When we get to see various characters interact with each other that we’re not used to seeing, that’s worth plunking down one’s hard-earned cash to read. Then, too, Batman’s been doing very well! I saw long lines at Mr. King’s booth at the recent Baltimore Comic Con as well as good numbers for the book in recent months. So why not bring various members of the Bat-family together for a special event?
