Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
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.

As a way to deliver backstory, this is a nice way to do so.
"Avengers Academy" is hitting a turning point for its character, and it's not a pleasant one at that.
Fill-in artists and scripters result in a slightly rushed lead-up to the finale.
"Flashpoint" inches towards a conclusion, as characters blip on and off the page.
The team-members who left a few issues ago? They're back.
"Lost Legions" is already moving towards a conclusion, which makes this story much more concise and peppy than it first looked.
This is one of the few "Flashpoint" tie-ins that appears to have a clear purpose.
