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.

Marjorie Liu makes a tie-in to another series still feel natural and like it was her idea all along.

Green Lantern Corps #53

Wed, October 20th, 2010 | Category: Review

This is exactly what you should expect from "Green Lantern Corps."

Supergirl #57

Wed, October 20th, 2010 | Category: Review

As Sterling Gates starts wrapping up his "Supergirl" run, it's one of his strongest issues to date. Hello, Bizarro-Supergirl, hello.

X-Men #4

Sun, October 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

This is the part of the story where we wonder why, exactly, it needed to be six issues long.

Booster Gold #37

Thu, October 14th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Booster Gold" is all over the map, figuratively and literally.

Carey and Gross prove that yes, books about books can be creepy.

Thor #616

Thu, October 14th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Thor" is gorgeous and intriguing, but also moving at a snail's pace.

Green Lantern #58

Wed, October 13th, 2010 | Category: Review

It's a lot of set-up, but at least it's entertaining set-up.

Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #3

Wed, October 13th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors" is really just a "Green Lantern Corps" with another title, but missing half of its cast.

Warlord of Mars #1

Wed, October 13th, 2010 | Category: Review

For those who have never read a "John Carter of Mars" story before, some of "Warlord of Mars" will be rather surprising.

Sweet Tooth #14

Mon, October 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Sweet Tooth" continues to develop quite a strong bite.

Mon, October 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

As "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight" lurches towards its conclusion, it feels a little uneven.

Incorruptible #10

Wed, October 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Incorruptible" has a streak of gold at its core.

Avengers Academy #5

Wed, October 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

A guest artist plus a spotlight on the least interesting member of "Avengers Academy" results in a good, not great issue.

Secret Warriors #20

Fri, October 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

A rushed opening and so-so art is not a good beginning to the end run on "Secret Warriors."
