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.

FIRST COMIC: "Elfquest" #5

Flashpoint: Batman: Knight of Vengeance #2

Wed, July 6th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Knight of Vengeance" remains the crown jewel of the "Flashpoint" stories.

Superboy #9

Wed, July 6th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Superboy" is deep into its endgame from Jeff Lemire and Pier Gallo.

Usagi Yojimbo #138

Sat, July 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Usagi Yojimbo" continues to be a model of consistency.

Uncanny X-Men #539

Thu, June 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

This feels more like an issue of "Generation Hope" than "Uncanny X-Men."

Flashpoint: Hal Jordan #1

Thu, June 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

It's a brisk read, but Ben Oliver's art sure is pretty.

Flashpoint: Green Arrow Industries #1

Thu, June 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Flashpoint Oliver Queen is a jerk." Printing those five words over and over again might have been more entertaining.

Batman Incorporated #7

Wed, June 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

The idea of a Lakota Batman sounds ludicrous, but somehow Grant Morrison makes it work.

Flashpoint: Project Superman #1

Wed, June 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

Building a better superhuman isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Fables #106

Thu, June 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

Quite possibly the most anti-climactic end to a major story in "Fables" history, alas.

Superman #712

Wed, June 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

It's a tough life, being a dog.

Flashpoint: Lois Lane and the Resistance #1

Wed, June 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

Unfortunately, the exciting scene on the cover has nothing to do with the contents of this comic.

Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost #1

Wed, June 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

Where's Bart Allen? As it turns out, right where he should be.

Flashpoint: Reverse-Flash #1

Wed, June 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

What at first seems unremarkable may actually have an important plot point for "Flashpoint" buried inside of it.

Dark Horse Presents #2

Wed, June 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

Bit by bit, "Dark Horse Presents" is finding its new voice.

Hellblazer #280

Fri, June 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Hellblazer" delights in faking out its audience, and its audience delights in being faked out.

Flashpoint: Legion of Doom #1

Fri, June 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

Cornball dialogue goes a long way towards killing reader enthusiasm here.

Legion of Super-Heroes #14

Thu, June 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

Wrap it up!

Batgirl #22

Wed, June 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

This is just another reason to miss Bryan Q. Miller's take on "Batgirl," come September.

Hulk #35

Wed, June 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Planet Red Hulk" wraps up with an ending that I suspect few will see coming.

Batman #711

Wed, June 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

As an example of Daniel's "Batman" run, this is not the one to look at.
