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.

Uncanny X-Men #527

Thu, August 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

A potentially interesting issue is derailed by increasingly ineffective art.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Riley #1

Thu, August 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Riley" doesn't have much of a story, but the high point is watching Riley and Sam interact.

Secret Avengers #4

Thu, August 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

The conclusion to the first "Secret Avengers" storyline feels a little flat.

Batgirl #13

Thu, August 12th, 2010 | Category: Review

Slowly but surely, "Batgirl" is pulling itself together into a respectable little book.

B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth: New World #1

Wed, August 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

The B.P.R.D. gets a new subtitle and offers up a good jumping-on point for new readers.

The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles #2

Wed, August 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

When Cthulhu calls, it calls collect.

New Mutants Forever #1

Tue, August 10th, 2010 | Category: Review

I have to hand it to all parties involved: this feels like it came immediately after "New Mutants" #54.

iZombie #4

Sun, August 8th, 2010 | Category: Review

Zombies and ghosts and mummies! Oh my!

Secret Six #24

Sun, August 8th, 2010 | Category: Review

And now for something completely different.

Hawkeye and Mockingbird #3

Fri, August 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Hawkeye & Mockingbird" is fun, but there's that niggling feeling that it could be better.

Secret Warriors #18

Thu, August 5th, 2010 | Category: Review

I had to keep double-checking that the title of this comic is still "Secret Warriors" and not "S.H.I.E.L.D."

Baltimore: The Plague Ships #1

Wed, August 4th, 2010 | Category: Review

For those of us who didn't read the "Baltimore" novel, this mini-series starts off a bit slowly and predictably.

X-Men Legacy #238

Sun, August 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

"X-Men Legacy" heads off to India but there's more to this story than a love for the country's delicious cuisine.

Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #4

Thu, July 29th, 2010 | Category: Review

A Grant Morrison script undone by the art? Well, that's never happened before.

Justice League: Generation Lost #6

Thu, July 29th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Justice League: Generation Lost" gets a motivation more than "he's a bad guy."

Detective Comics #867

Wed, July 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

There's a good idea in this issue of "Detective Comics," but it's not quite coming together.

Green Lantern Corps #50

Wed, July 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

Bedard brings back the Cyborg Superman and thankfully keeps his most interesting motivation on board.

The Flash #4

Wed, July 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

This month's issue of "The Flash" feels both classic and modern at the same time, which is a nice twist.

Zatanna #3

Tue, July 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

The end of the first "Zatanna" storyline is a bit predictable, but the art is still gorgeous.

Supergirl #54

Mon, July 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

Sterling Gates moves "Supergirl" past the last year's worth of tie-ins and crossovers and goes back to making this title fun.
