Tom Brevoort Talks "Civil War II," the New Marvel NOW! and DC's "Rebirth"
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.

"X-Men" #32 continues Brian Wood and David Lopez's story about proto-mutants -- and for a comic set mostly on a plane it's quite gripping.
"Justice League" #11's overall ideas involving the ghosts of loved ones aren't bad, but this chapter in particular feels like everyone's vamping for time before the big conclusion.
"Resurrection Man" begins to wind down, and that feeling of déjà vu is for anyone who read the original series in the '90s.
People will be talking about the last page of "Swamp Thing" #11, but the rest of the issue has a lot to recommend, too.
"Dark Avengers" juggles two stories simultaneously, and the end result is amusing.
"Fantastic Four Annual" #33 brings back Alan Davis' "ClanDestine" characters, in a comic that both stands on its own and is also part of a bigger story.
Two issues in, "The Massive" is as much travelogue as adventure and the combination is fantastic.
"Eerie Comics" comes back to life, but this revival feels a bit too dated.
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" starts to feel like it's meandering again, and that's not a good thing.
"Earth 2" #3 is really two different comics grafted together and it's pity the two halves clash so much.
"MIND MGMT" #2 continues the series' run down the rabbit hole, but the destination is still a mystery.
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 takes the "What if Lex Luthor won?" concept in a fun direction.
It's the "Thief of Thieves" moment you've been waiting for: the heist.
"Teen Titans" takes (mostly) a break from the angst, which is a nice change, and starts to finally feel like a team.
Two issues in, Jeff Lemire is doing just fine as the new writer for "Justice League Dark."
Gilbert Hernandez's "Fatima" has a slow start, but it's still entertaining.
Brandon Graham adds on artist duties to this month's "Prophet," and the end result is excellent.
"Wonder Woman" tackles last month's cliffhanger with a clever solution and the added bonus of Kano's art for half the issue.
