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.

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

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

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

Hulk #27

Fri, November 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

The conceit of the comic is a little hard to swallow, but Jeff Parker does his best job of selling it.

Straczynski tries to make a point about every-day heroes, but it gets lost in the melodrama.
