INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
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.

It's voodoo time! (But not the comic book character named Voodoo. Just regular voodoo.)
No, you didn't miss an issue; the Birds of Prey are just as confused as you are.
A spotlight on Zoe amidst war games is intriguing, but is "Morning Glories" actually going anywhere?
"Prophet" goes French. Well, sort of.
"Snarked" wraps up its first story arc in a thoroughly entertaining way.
"The Shade" #4 has just about everything you want in a comic book.
"Wolverine & The X-Men" collides with "Uncanny X-Force" with shockingly good results.
There are still some rough edges to "Superboy," but it's turned into a fun little book.
"Captain America" sure is beautiful under Alan Davis's pencil.
Did someone say... riot?
There is nothing to fear but... oh, you know it by now.
"Punisher" begins its second act, and we finally learn Detective Ozzy Clemons' connection to the Punisher.
This issue: a team member dies! (No, really.)
The only rot in "Animal Man" is the comic's adversary of the same name.
If you're going to temporarily suspend your storyline for a two-parter by a guest artist, "Action Comics" #5 is the way to do it.
"Detective Comics" tries to balance two features, but it's an uneven match.
Unlike a fine wine, "Superman" is not improving with age.
"Voodoo" has turned into a fun little thriller; a pity it's poised for a "new direction."
"The Trench" comes to an explosive conclusion.
"Legion: Secret Origin" is probably what the first six issues of the re-launched "Legion of Super- Heroes" should have been.
