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.

Batgirl versus... Klarion the Witch Boy? Really?

It's a Straczynski title crossover this month, sort of.

Daomu #1

Sat, February 5th, 2011 | Category: Review

Interesting art can't quite lift a lackluster adaptation on the script level.

Sweet Tooth #18

Thu, February 3rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Sweet Tooth" shifts format for a month, and what could have felt like a gimmick is instead... well... sweet.

Hulk #29

More monsters! More Hulks! More M.O.D.O.K.!

Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever #1

Wed, February 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Witchfinder" returns with a trip to the wild west. Isn't that what you do when John Severin is your artist?

Superboy #4

Wed, February 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

Jeff Lemire's overall plotting is fun, and this book is settling into a nice groove.

Hellboy: The Sleeping and the Dead #2

Mignola and Hampton work so well together it makes you wonder why it didn't happen sooner.

Thunderbolts #152

Thu, January 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Thunderbolts" versus behemoths from Monster Island? Oh, yeah.

Astonishing Thor #2

Thu, January 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

The only astonishing thing here, unfortunately, is the dullness.

Uncanny X-Men #532

Thu, January 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

The X-Men are still sick, Dazzler is still luminous, Sebastian Shaw is still dangerous, and Greg Land is still photo-referencing.

Zatanna #9

Thu, January 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

Can you say, "Esirprus pukcab erutaef," kids? I thought you could.

Fables #101

Wed, January 26th, 2011 | Category: Review

This side-step after the climactic "Fables" #100 is so satisfying you'll be dying to find out what happens next with these minor characters.

Shazam! #1

Wed, January 26th, 2011 | Category: Review

The actual telling of the "Shazam!" special isn't bad, but the it's the basic idea behind it that seems off-center.

Wolverine and Jubilee #1

Sat, January 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

21 years later, the pairing of Wolverine and Jubilee still works.
