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.

FIRST COMIC: "Elfquest" #5

Stormwatch #4

Wed, December 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

The conclusion is a little too deus ex machina, but there's still a lot to like in "Stormwatch" #4.

Avenging Spider-Man #2

Wed, December 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Avenging Spider-Man" is fun and pretty, but it's also a little slight.

Swamp Thing #4

Wed, December 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

Did someone say "Dinosaur Swamp Thing?"

Fables #111

Mon, December 5th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Inherit the Wind" comes to less of a conclusion and more of a sudden stop.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1

Thu, December 1st, 2011 | Category: Review

"T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" returns, with a story barely about the actual agents. Great for returning readers, not so much for new readers.

Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #3

Wed, November 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

David Petersen's "Mouse Guard" continues to enthrall, issue after issue.

FF #12

Wed, November 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

"FF" continues on after "Fantastic Four" returns, but the art choice is sabotaging the story.

Alpha Flight #6

Fri, November 25th, 2011 | Category: Review

It's a shame "Alpha Flight" is back to being a limited series, because this is thoroughly entertaining.

Dark Horse Presents #6

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

There's a lot to love about the latest "Dark Horse Presents" to more than cover for an occasional misstep.

Justice League Dark #3

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Justice League Dark" is in the dreaded "middle issue" phase, which is still good, just not as great as the first two.

Teen Titans #3

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Teen Titans" is aiming for that most essential element that was missing out of some recent incarnations of the title: fun.

Batman: The Dark Knight #3

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Batman: The Dark Knight" is coming across as a poor man's "Hush."

Aquaman #3

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Aquaman" continues to be fun, but it feels like it's over in the blink of an eye.

Usagi Yojimbo #142

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

How about a little rabbit for your pre- Thanksgiving dinner?

iZombie #19

Mon, November 21st, 2011 | Category: Review

"iZombie" is about as dependable as they come, which is a good thing.

Captain Atom #3

Thu, November 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Captain Atom" is pulling a "superhero as deity" storyline, but so far it's not new territory.

Nightwing #3

Thu, November 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Nightwing" has turned out to be a pleasant, by- the-books superhero comic.

X-Factor #227

Wed, November 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

Don't let the joking fool you, "X-Factor" is in some dark territory.

Justice League #3

Wed, November 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

Little by little, "Justice League" is coming together, and by that I don't just mean the main characters.

New Mutants #34

Wed, November 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

Blink's back! But not the one you all knew and loved in "Exiles."
