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.

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.

Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #3

Wed, October 13th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors" is really just a "Green Lantern Corps" with another title, but missing half of its cast.

Warlord of Mars #1

Wed, October 13th, 2010 | Category: Review

For those who have never read a "John Carter of Mars" story before, some of "Warlord of Mars" will be rather surprising.

Sweet Tooth #14

Mon, October 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Sweet Tooth" continues to develop quite a strong bite.

Taskmaster #2

Mon, October 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

Fred Van Lente strikes again with a fantastic re-invention of an old villain.

iZombie #6

Thu, October 7th, 2010 | Category: Review

This "iZombie" side story is slightly predictable, but still enjoyable.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight #37

Wed, October 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

As "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight" lurches towards its conclusion, it feels a little uneven.

Incorruptible #10

Wed, October 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Incorruptible" has a streak of gold at its core.

Avengers Academy #5

Wed, October 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

A guest artist plus a spotlight on the least interesting member of "Avengers Academy" results in a good, not great issue.

Secret Warriors #20

Fri, October 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

A rushed opening and so-so art is not a good beginning to the end run on "Secret Warriors."

Curse of the Mutants: X-Men vs. Vampires #1

Thu, September 30th, 2010 | Category: Review

Another X-Men event, another X-Men anthology comic, but this one isn't as strong as those which preceded it.

Avengers Prime #3

Thu, September 30th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Avengers Prime" runs the risk of being a little too chatty in places, but Alan Davis' pencils are so gorgeous it doesn't matter.

The Terminator: 1984 #1

Thu, September 30th, 2010 | Category: Review

Didn't read "The Terminator: 2029" either? Don't worry, this sequel mini-series is still accessible and easy to follow.

Namor: The First Mutant #2

Thu, September 30th, 2010 | Category: Review

There's a lot of potential in a new Namor comic, but so far this seems to be missing the mark.

Justice Society of America #43

Wed, September 29th, 2010 | Category: Review

As "Justice Society of America" prepares for a new creative team, James Robinson gives the new status quo for Obsidian and the Starheart.

Superman/Batman #76

Fri, September 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

It's another flashback to "Batman R.I.P." and "Final Crisis," but the real reason to stick around is Marco Rudy's page layouts.

Legion of Super-Heroes #5

Fri, September 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Legion of Super-Heroes" is telling a classic Legion story here, and I mean that in a positive way.

Skullkickers #1

Fri, September 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Skullkickers" is a nice enough debut, but I feel like the book is only getting started when it hits "to be continued."
