I first discovered the joy of comics in 1980 when some girls on my school bus brought in their father's copies of Wendy and Richard Pini's "Elfquest" and the rest, as they say, is history. Since then, I've written freelance interviews and articles for "Wizard" (going all the way back to the first issue), headed up the Small Press Expo and the Ignatz Awards, served as an Eisner judge and written reviews regularly since 1999 (first for iComics.com, then moving to my own site Read About Comics).

I moved to the Washington DC area in 1974 and have yet to leave. I design and develop training for the Federal government during the day, and I've had both fiction and non-fiction professionally published. In my spare time I train for marathons and triathlons. I've promised my friends one of these days I'll run a race dressed as the Flash.

The Massive #2

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

Two issues in, "The Massive" is as much travelogue as adventure and the combination is fantastic.

Eerie Comics #1

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Eerie Comics" comes back to life, but this revival feels a bit too dated.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #11

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

Buffy gets a new job in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9" #11 and this time it's one that actually looks like a good fit.

X-Factor #239

Fri, July 6th, 2012 | Category: Review

"X-Factor" starts to feel like it's meandering again, and that's not a good thing.

Earth 2 #3

Fri, July 6th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Earth 2" #3 is really two different comics grafted together and it's pity the two halves clash so much.

MIND MGMT #2

Fri, July 6th, 2012 | Category: Review

"MIND MGMT" #2 continues the series' run down the rabbit hole, but the destination is still a mystery.

Avengers Vs. X-Men #7

Thu, July 5th, 2012 | Category: Review

There's enough to entertain, but "Avengers vs. X-Men" #7 is a reminder that this event doesn't need 12 issues.

Edison Rex #1

Thu, July 5th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Edison Rex" #1 takes the "What if Lex Luthor won?" concept in a fun direction.

Thief of Thieves #6

Thu, July 5th, 2012 | Category: Review

It's the "Thief of Thieves" moment you've been waiting for: the heist.

Teen Titans #10

Mon, July 2nd, 2012 | Category: Review

"Teen Titans" takes (mostly) a break from the angst, which is a nice change, and starts to finally feel like a team.

Justice League Dark #10

Mon, July 2nd, 2012 | Category: Review

Two issues in, Jeff Lemire is doing just fine as the new writer for "Justice League Dark."

Fatima #1

Wed, June 27th, 2012 | Category: Review

Gilbert Hernandez's "Fatima" has a slow start, but it's still entertaining.

Prophet #26

Wed, June 27th, 2012 | Category: Review

Brandon Graham adds on artist duties to this month's "Prophet," and the end result is excellent.

Wonder Woman #10

Mon, June 25th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Wonder Woman" tackles last month's cliffhanger with a clever solution and the added bonus of Kano's art for half the issue.

The Secret History of D.B. Cooper #4

Fri, June 22nd, 2012 | Category: Review

Brian Churilla continues to make "The Secret History of D.B. Cooper" a wonderfully strange book.

Batwoman #10

Wed, June 20th, 2012 | Category: Review

For a storyline being told out-of-order, "Batwoman" #10 still comes together nicely.

Avengers Academy #32

Wed, June 20th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Avengers vs. X-Men" continues to invade "Avengers Academy" in a story that might have worked better without the crossover.

Saga #4

Wed, June 20th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Saga" moves at its own, deliberate pace, and Vaughan and Staples continue to turn out good entertainment.

New Mutants #44

Wed, June 20th, 2012 | Category: Review

"New Mutants" kicks off "Fear the Future" with an issue that leaves the readers in the dark, but that's a good thing.

Batman and Robin #10

Fri, June 15th, 2012 | Category: Review

The idea behind "Batman and Robin" #10 is a good one, but the execution is a little uneven.
