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.

Detective Comics Annual #12

Thu, December 9th, 2010 | Category: Review

There are some flashes of interest in the new "Detective Comics Annual," but overall it's not quite worth its price.

R.E.B.E.L.S. #23

Thu, December 9th, 2010 | Category: Review

"R.E.B.E.L.S." quietly continues to do its own thing, but it's hard to keep from wishing it would focus more on its own cast of characters.

B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth: New World #5

Wed, December 8th, 2010 | Category: Review

The first "B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth" mini-series comes to a satisfying conclusion, with hints of bad things still to come.

Superboy #2

Wed, December 8th, 2010 | Category: Review

There are some rough edges on "Superboy" right now, but nothing that can't be fixed.

Fables #100

Wed, December 8th, 2010 | Category: Review

No more happy endings.

Motel Art Improvement Service

Tue, December 7th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Motel Art Improvement Service" is a modern "Nancy Drew," only with sex and drugs and defacement of bad hotel art.

American Vampire #9

Mon, December 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

"American Vampire" continues to have a lot of bite.

Sweet Tooth #16

Sun, December 5th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Sweet Tooth" is good not only because of its overall plot and action, but because of its heart.

Adventure Comics #521

Fri, December 3rd, 2010 | Category: Review

It's not a bad setup, but at the same time it's hard to keep from feeling like remarkably little happens here.

JSA All-Stars #13

Fri, December 3rd, 2010 | Category: Review

After a fun first half, "JSA All-Stars" and its spotlight on Cyclone grinds to a conclusion.

RASL #9

Fri, December 3rd, 2010 | Category: Review

An issue of "RASL" is always worth the wait.

Brightest Day #15

Thu, December 2nd, 2010 | Category: Review

You know from the start what the conclusion of this issue will be, and yet it's still somewhat entertaining.

Uncanny X-Men #530

Sat, November 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

Quarantines, as it turn out, make for a great X-Men line-up.

Teen Titans #89

Sat, November 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Teen Titans" is on the road to fun again. How'd that happen?

Conan the Cimmerian #25

Sat, November 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Conan the Cimmerian" draws to a close with a muted conclusion.

Batman and Robin #17

Wed, November 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

"What are we missing?" is an apt but unfortunate rallying cry for this book, in more ways than one.

Justice League: Generation Lost #14

Wed, November 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

A sequel (or is that prequel?) to issue #6, as Captain Atom takes another trip into the future where Max Lord succeeded.

Action Comics #895

Wed, November 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Action Comics" continues to bring a lot of fun, even without that much action.

Green Lantern #59

Sun, November 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

Hope you like exposition, because "Green Lantern" is serving up a whole lot of it with a side of talking.

Superior #2

Sun, November 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

It's pretty to look at and kind of cute, but understand in advance that there's virtually no plot here.
