CBR's Guide to Free Comic Book Day 2016
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.

If the TARDIS and NCC-1701-D are meeting, you know the Borg and the Cybermen are somehow involved.
It doesn't matter if you're equally confused on what "Ame-Comi" is, this is a fun (and inexpensive) Wonder Woman story.

With "Youngblood" #71, Liefeld's relaunches didn't save the best for last.
"All-Star Western," not to be left out of the fun, has its own "Night of the Owls" tie-in. Despite being set quite some time in the past.
Judd Winick steps in to helm "Batman: The Dark Knight" as it enters the "Night of the Owls."
"Hulk" #52 concludes the "Haunted Hulk" storyline with the Legion of Monsters, which feels somewhat fitting.
"Astonishing X-Men" #50 is in the news over Northstar and his boyfriend Kyle's engagement. What's inside is another story.
"Fantastic Four" #606 is cute, but we've all seen this story before.
Look out, Batman fans. Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham are back for the "Second Wave" relaunch of "Batman Incorporated."
Bursting from the pages of "Dark Horse Presents," "Resident Alien" is just as enjoyable as I'd remembered.
"Secret Service" #2 continues the by-the-numbers story of Gary as he trains to be a real-world hero with his super-spy uncle Jack.

Jill Thompson drawing a James Robinson script for a Times Past story in "The Shade" #8. It doesn't get much better than this.
"B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth" finally returns to Andrew Devon and Fenix's story and it's worth the wait.
"Mystery in Space" is a truly mixed bag from start to finish.
"The Culling" continues in "Superboy" with little more than a non-interesting fight scene.
