Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
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.

"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.
It's attack of the guest artists as "Uncanny X- Men" ends its first storyline.
Mob Rule's origin is sufficiently creepy, but it's the art in "The Flash" that will blow your mind.
It's not easy being Blue Beetle, and that's part of the attraction of the series.
It's hard to shake the feeling that this isn't "Doctor Manhattan: The Series," but it's still entertaining.
"Supergirl" inches along, but it would be better if the pace picked up a bit.
Be careful, kids. Bad music causes tornados. Also: Middle Chapter Syndrome.
It might be the shortest day of the year, but "Daredevil" #7 will bring warmth to your heart.
Don't make Hera angry. You won't like her when she's angry.
"Grifter" is losing a little steam, and a pointless encounter with Green Arrow is part of the problem.
"Green Lantern" is showing potential, but the pace is far slower than it needs to be.
"Suicide Squad" continues to improve every issue, and this issue is no exception.
X-23 joins "Avengers Academy" right as everything is poised for disaster.
Still gorgeous, and the story's picking up, to boot.
"The Shade" heads down under for what, to this non-Australian, feels like a nice change from cliché.
23 years after the first one, "Hellblazer" gives us another Annual. It was actually worth the wait.
"Static Shock" is a little jumpy in places, but there are moments in here which are fantastic.
"Justice League International" is superheroes by the book, in every single way.
