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.

House of Mystery #31

Wed, November 3rd, 2010 | Category: Review

"House of Mystery" has definitely lost its own mystery, and when you're just left with "House of" it's understandably dull.

Brightest Day #13

Did someone say... hawk?

Justice League: Generation Lost #12

Wed, October 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Oracle #1

Wed, October 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

Don't let the cover fool you, it's not really a one-shot about Oracle.

Superman #704

Wed, October 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

Wilson's fill-in script is solid, but the art doesn't quite live up to the early promise.

Beasts of Burden/Hellboy: Sacrifice #1

Wed, October 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Beasts of Burden/Hellboy" truly merges the best of both worlds.

Fantastic Four #584

Wed, October 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Fantastic Four" is still entertaining, but it's also starting to lose some steam.

Justice Society of America #44

Wed, October 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

In which the JSA turns into a grim and gritty mid-'90s team and utterly misses the point.

Batman Beyond #5

Sat, October 23rd, 2010 | Category: Review

"Batman Beyond" probably didn't need to be six issues in length, but it's ultimately still enjoyable.

X-23 #2

Fri, October 22nd, 2010 | Category: Review

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

Fables #99

"Fables" finishes setting up next month's confrontation with Mister Dark with some beautiful art from Inaki Miranda.

Justice League of America #50

Thu, October 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

I wish this had been James Robinson's first issue of "Justice League of America."

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.

The Unwritten #18

Thu, October 14th, 2010 | Category: Review

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.
