First Look at DC Rebirth Designs For Bizarro, Red Robin, Batman Beyond & More
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.

Brian Churilla continues to make "The Secret History of D.B. Cooper" a wonderfully strange book.
For a storyline being told out-of-order, "Batwoman" #10 still comes together nicely.
"Avengers vs. X-Men" continues to invade "Avengers Academy" in a story that might have worked better without the crossover.
"Saga" moves at its own, deliberate pace, and Vaughan and Staples continue to turn out good entertainment.
"New Mutants" kicks off "Fear the Future" with an issue that leaves the readers in the dark, but that's a good thing.
The idea behind "Batman and Robin" #10 is a good one, but the execution is a little uneven.
"Suicide Squad" has settled into a nice rhythm, although a little more stability would be great.
"American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares" #1 has a lot to enjoy for both existing fans as well as new readers.
"Legion Lost" #10 takes the team back to the 31st century, but since this isn't the final issue of the series, you know it won't last.
"Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre" #1 looks beautiful, but there's not much behind the great art.
"The Shade" begins to wind down, but not before Frazer Irving steps into the artist seat.
Jason Aaron's "Stay Angry" storyline in "Incredible Hulk" is entertaining, but also quickly falling into a pattern.
Ed Benes joins writer Tony S. Daniel for "Detective Comics" #10, kicking off a new storyarc for the Dark Knight.
"Worlds' Finest" #2 explores the backstory of Power Girl and Huntress while introducing a new villain for a present-day slugfest.
"Dial H" #2 isn't as crazy-awesome as the first issue, but Mieville and Santolouco still provide enough enticements to read more.
"Uncanny X-Men" #13 tries to balance its own plots with "Avengers vs. X-Men" with some success but also a bit of slowness.
Grant Morrison takes "Action Comics" into a flashback that doesn't mesh with present day stories, but is intriguing nonetheless.
Opening "Before Watchmen" comics with "Minutemen" #1 by Darwyn Cooke was an extremely smart move on DC's part.
Victor Gischler and Will Conrad wrap up their run on "X-Men" with a bit of a thud rather than a bang.
"The New Deadwardians" manages to stick zombies and vampires into a story and make it still feel unique.
