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.

In this debut issue of Smoketown from Scout Comics, we explore one woman’s reaction to abuse, and it really begins to help me understand why she takes serious action to resolve the situation.

There’s just something about the Rogues that brings out the best in Barry Allen. This is Mr. Williamson’s first go-round with them, and it’s truly great, in my opinion!
