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.

Uncanny X-Men #541

Thu, July 21st, 2011 | Category: Review

Nothing stops the Juggernaut! Not even a "Fear Itself" crossover event in which someone has to yank off his helmet. But who? And how?

Flashpoint: The Outsider #2

Wed, July 20th, 2011 | Category: Review

The purpose of "Flashpoint: The Outsider" is still a little perplexing, even at the two-thirds mark.

Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the Furies #2

Wed, July 20th, 2011 | Category: Review

The Wonder Woman versus Aquaman conflict continues to play out, but it's distinctly less exciting once all the facts are out.

Flashpoint: Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown #2

Fri, July 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

For an origin that's about to get wiped out, an awful lot of time is being spent on it, here.

Flashpoint: Emperor Aquaman #2

Thu, July 14th, 2011 | Category: Review

The Atlantis/New Themyscira war that's not really appearing in "Flashpoint?" It's in here.

FF #6

Thu, July 14th, 2011 | Category: Review

And now, an issue of "FF" without any of the 16+ regular cast members appearing. Instead, it's the return of the Inhumans!

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: Monsters #1

Wed, July 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

Liz Sherman returns, and new artist Tyler Crook steps on board.

Hellboy: The Fury #2

Wed, July 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

Nobody does apocalypse quite like Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo.

Secret Six #35

Sun, July 10th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Secret Six" looks determined to end with a bang, not a whimper. The protagonists are still villains, and Gail Simons reminds us of that this month.

Adventure Comics #528

Thu, July 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Adventure Comics" winds down with a graduation ceremony, and the return of an old villain.

iZombie #15

Thu, July 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

"iZombie" suddenly starts converging its characters and plots, and I'm pleased as punch.

Flashpoint: Secret Seven #2

Thu, July 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

If there's a plot here, it's hard to find.

Flashpoint: Batman: Knight of Vengeance #2

Wed, July 6th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Knight of Vengeance" remains the crown jewel of the "Flashpoint" stories.

Superboy #9

Wed, July 6th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Superboy" is deep into its endgame from Jeff Lemire and Pier Gallo.

Usagi Yojimbo #138

Sat, July 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Usagi Yojimbo" continues to be a model of consistency.

Uncanny X-Men #539

Thu, June 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

This feels more like an issue of "Generation Hope" than "Uncanny X-Men."

Flashpoint: Hal Jordan #1

Thu, June 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

It's a brisk read, but Ben Oliver's art sure is pretty.

Flashpoint: Green Arrow Industries #1

Thu, June 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Flashpoint Oliver Queen is a jerk." Printing those five words over and over again might have been more entertaining.

Batman Incorporated #7

Wed, June 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

The idea of a Lakota Batman sounds ludicrous, but somehow Grant Morrison makes it work.

Flashpoint: Project Superman #1

Wed, June 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

Building a better superhuman isn't all it's cracked up to be.
