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.

Action Comics #5

Wed, January 4th, 2012 | Category: Review

If you're going to temporarily suspend your storyline for a two-parter by a guest artist, "Action Comics" #5 is the way to do it.

Detective Comics #5

Wed, January 4th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Detective Comics" tries to balance two features, but it's an uneven match.

Superman #4

Thu, December 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

Unlike a fine wine, "Superman" is not improving with age.

Voodoo #4

Thu, December 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Voodoo" has turned into a fun little thriller; a pity it's poised for a "new direction."

Aquaman #4

Wed, December 28th, 2011 | Category: Review

"The Trench" comes to an explosive conclusion.

Legion: Secret Origin #3

Wed, December 28th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Legion: Secret Origin" is probably what the first six issues of the re-launched "Legion of Super- Heroes" should have been.

Uncanny X-Men #3

Wed, December 28th, 2011 | Category: Review

It's attack of the guest artists as "Uncanny X- Men" ends its first storyline.

The Flash #4

Wed, December 28th, 2011 | Category: Review

Mob Rule's origin is sufficiently creepy, but it's the art in "The Flash" that will blow your mind.

Blue Beetle #4

Thu, December 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

It's not easy being Blue Beetle, and that's part of the attraction of the series.

Captain Atom #4

Thu, December 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

It's hard to shake the feeling that this isn't "Doctor Manhattan: The Series," but it's still entertaining.

Supergirl #4

Thu, December 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Supergirl" inches along, but it would be better if the pace picked up a bit.

New Mutants #35

Wed, December 21st, 2011 | Category: Review

Be careful, kids. Bad music causes tornados. Also: Middle Chapter Syndrome.

Daredevil #7

Wed, December 21st, 2011 | Category: Review

It might be the shortest day of the year, but "Daredevil" #7 will bring warmth to your heart.

Wonder Woman #4

Wed, December 21st, 2011 | Category: Review

Don't make Hera angry. You won't like her when she's angry.

Grifter #4

Sat, December 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Grifter" is losing a little steam, and a pointless encounter with Green Arrow is part of the problem.

Green Lantern #4

Sat, December 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Green Lantern" is showing potential, but the pace is far slower than it needs to be.

Suicide Squad #4

Thu, December 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Suicide Squad" continues to improve every issue, and this issue is no exception.

Avengers Academy #23

Thu, December 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

X-23 joins "Avengers Academy" right as everything is poised for disaster.

Batwoman #4

Wed, December 14th, 2011 | Category: Review

Still gorgeous, and the story's picking up, to boot.

The Shade
 #3

Wed, December 14th, 2011 | Category: Review

"The Shade" heads down under for what, to this non-Australian, feels like a nice change from cliché.
