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.

FIRST COMIC: "Elfquest" #5

Resident Alien #3

Thu, July 26th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Resident Alien" #3 brings Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse's first mini-series to a conclusion, but with more scheduled for later this year there isn't a sense of finality present.

Batman: The Dark Knight #11

Thu, July 26th, 2012 | Category: Review

Two issues into the updated creative team of Gregg Hurwitz and David Finch, "Batman: The Dark Knight" #11's story of the Scarecrow's latest experiment is turning out to be a hit.

Wolverine & the X-Men #14

Thu, July 26th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Wolverine & the X-Men" #14 lets Jason Aaron and Jorge Molina show us a side-story of "Avengers vs. X-Men" as Colossus and Shadowcat go on a date -- and unsurprisingly, disaster ensues.

FF #20

Thu, July 26th, 2012 | Category: Review

"FF" #20 is now more than ever an overflow title for "Fantastic Four," its apparent purpose being to help Jonathan Hickman wrap up storylines like the Inhumans' status in the Marvel Universe.

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: Exorcism #2

Wed, July 25th, 2012 | Category: Review

"B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: Exorcism" #2 brings Mike Mignola and Cameron Stewart's story of a long term possession to an attractive-looking but slightly predictable conclusion.

DC Universe Presents #11

Mon, July 23rd, 2012 | Category: Review

"DC Universe Presents" #11 wraps up James Robinson and Bernard Chang's story about Vandal Savage and his daughter Kass, but it feels a little too simple to be truly satisfying.

The Infernal Man-Thing #2

Mon, July 23rd, 2012 | Category: Review

"The Infernal Man-Thing" is ill-served by its new format, but is a good (if unintentional) swan song for the late Steve Gerber, as well as a showcase for Kevin Nowlan.

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: The Devil's Engine #3

Mon, July 23rd, 2012 | Category: Review

"B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: The Devil's Engine" wraps up Devon and Fenix's train-ride of terror in a satisfying way, even as the next mini-series is prepped for its debut around the corner.

Glory #28

Mon, July 23rd, 2012 | Category: Review

"Glory" #28 plunges Glory and Riley into a hideous battle, even as more questions are raised about which side is "right."

X-Men #32

Mon, July 23rd, 2012 | Category: Review

"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

Fri, July 20th, 2012 | Category: Review

"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 #11

Mon, July 16th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Resurrection Man" begins to wind down, and that feeling of déjà vu is for anyone who read the original series in the '90s.

Swamp Thing #11

Sun, July 15th, 2012 | Category: Review

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 #177

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Dark Avengers" juggles two stories simultaneously, and the end result is amusing.

Fantastic Four Annual #33

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

"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.

The Massive #2

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

Two issues in, "The Massive" is as much travelogue as adventure and the combination is fantastic.

Eerie Comics #1

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Eerie Comics" comes back to life, but this revival feels a bit too dated.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #11

Wed, July 11th, 2012 | Category: Review

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 #239

Fri, July 6th, 2012 | Category: Review

"X-Factor" starts to feel like it's meandering again, and that's not a good thing.

Earth 2 #3

Fri, July 6th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Earth 2" #3 is really two different comics grafted together and it's pity the two halves clash so much.
