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.

"iZombie" begins its endgame as we see the last attempted apocalypse in the '70s.

Fanboys vs. Zombies #1

"Fanboys vs. Zombies" is another zombie story, only with the numbers filed off and replaced with geek references.

New Mutants #40

Thu, April 5th, 2012 | Category: Review

Credit where it's due, what should have been a disastrous "New Mutants" sequel has turned out to be quite fun.

Avengers Academy #28

Thu, April 5th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Avengers Academy" concludes its arc guest-starring the Runaways, but it feels like the comic loses steam halfway through.

Fairest #2

Thu, April 5th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Fairest" #2 has the fairest art in the land, but the story fails to grab one's attention.

Wolverine & the X-Men #8

Wed, April 4th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Wolverine & The X-Men" #8 ties up a loose end from last issue so that "Avengers vs. X-Men" can begin its tie-in shortly.

Supreme #63

Wed, April 4th, 2012 | Category: Review

One final Alan Moore script for "Supreme" is published and it makes me yearn for a high-quality collection or two of the rest of his run.

Joshua Williamson continues his recasting of "Voodoo," but some parts work better than others.

A new "Astonishing X-Men" creative team means a new cast of characters, which holds some promise.

Bloodstrike #26

Wed, March 28th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Bloodstrike" is the next Extreme Studios book to be resurrected, although in the case of "Bloodstrike," that's more literal than you might think.

Thunderbolts #171

Fri, March 23rd, 2012 | Category: Review

Songbird gets her own spotlight in "Thunderbolts" #171 and how can you not like a Songbird solo issue?

"Fables" is entering the realm of remarkably creepy again and that's a good thing.

X-Factor #233

Thu, March 22nd, 2012 | Category: Review

"X-Factor" finally has the new team in place, but the end result isn't as strong as one would have expected.
