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.

I, Vampire #2

Thu, October 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

I'm still not sure how this fits into the rest of the DC Universe, but "I, Vampire" is good enough that I ultimately don't care.

Voodoo #2

Thu, October 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

Reading "Voodoo" makes me feel like we're getting a comic adaptation of a hot new action thriller film.

FF #11

Wed, October 26th, 2011 | Category: Review

"FF" #11 leads into next month's "Fantastic Four" #600 with a remarkably low-energy issue.

The Flash #2

Wed, October 26th, 2011 | Category: Review

It's the little touches in "The Flash" that make this issue stand out.

Justice League Dark #2

Wed, October 26th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Justice League Dark" might have a cheesy title, but this is the clear winner of the books with "Justice" in their title.

Sun, October 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

Deadman helps his latest host, and breaks into a mystical stronghold. The former is easier than the latter.

"Fables" quietly turns what looked like a fun story into something a bit more dangerous.

"Legion of Super-Heroes" gets a little more focused for its second issue, but is it too late?

Wed, October 19th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Wonder Woman" continues to reinterpret Diana's world, and for the better.

Wed, October 19th, 2011 | Category: Review

If the old "Blue Beetle" run was even half as fun, I'm kicking myself for not reading it, but making up for lost time now.

Sat, October 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Resurrection Man" is back from the dead and spryer than ever.

Deathstroke #2

Thu, October 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Deathstroke" tries to have its action cake and eat it too, but it bites off more than it can chew.

Thu, October 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Grifter" is light on story, but high on pretty action

Bad character designs aside, "Suicide Squad" is actually shaping up better than expected.

Batman and Robin #2

Thu, October 13th, 2011 | Category: Review
