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.

FIRST COMIC: "Elfquest" #5

X-Campus #1

Sat, July 3rd, 2010 | Category: Review

Didn't we already see this, and it was called "X-Men: Misfits" instead?

Justice League of America #46

Fri, July 2nd, 2010 | Category: Review

"Justice League of America" and "Justice Society of America" start up a new crossover, but so far it's less than interesting.

Captain America: The 1940s Newspaper Strip #1

Thu, July 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

Beyond the gimmick, there's not enough oomph in "Captain America: The 1940s Newspaper Strip" to carry it forward.

New Avengers: Luke Cage #3

Thu, July 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

An uncharacteristically weak script from John Arcudi and a fill-in artist drawing some pages means a poor finale.

Wonder Woman #600

Wed, June 30th, 2010 | Category: Review

There's something for everyone in "Wonder Woman" #600, but overall it's not as strong as one would hope.

Action Comics #890

Wed, June 30th, 2010 | Category: Review

No Superman? No problem.

X-Factor #206

Mon, June 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

"X-Factor" finishes its "Second Coming" tie-in with not so much a bang, but a thud.

Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard #2

Fri, June 25th, 2010 | Category: Review

The stories are slight, but still a joy to read.

The Joker's Asylum II: Killer Croc #1

Thu, June 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

Crime noir Killer Croc.

American Vampire #4

Thu, June 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

"American Vampire" slays the competition.

Fantastic Four #580

Wed, June 23rd, 2010 | Category: Review

A mixture of fun short-term plot, serious long-term plot, and a big shift in status quo. That's how I like my comics.

Legion of Super-Heroes #2

Wed, June 23rd, 2010 | Category: Review

"Legion of Super-Heroes" is feeling oddly slow despite an expanded page count.

Age of Heroes #2

Mon, June 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

"Age of Heroes" is less a collection of short stories, and more a group of teasers.

Muppet Snow White #2

Mon, June 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

Next to the great fun of the regular "Muppet Show" comic, this unfortunately can't compare.

Hellblazer #268

Sun, June 20th, 2010 | Category: Review

Peter Milligan brings Shade the Changing Man back, and it's a long overdue reunion.

Ultimate X #3

Fri, June 18th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Ultimate X" introduces a brand new character and that ever-present narration finally starts to work.

New Mutants #14

Fri, June 18th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Second Coming" lumbers towards its conclusion at a reasonable pace, and for a change without a high body count.

Birds of Prey #2

Wed, June 16th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Birds of Prey" #2 sets up the remaining two chapters of its opening storyline, and gets the band back together.

R.E.B.E.L.S. #17

Wed, June 16th, 2010 | Category: Review

"R.E.B.E.L.S." has quietly morphed back into "L.E.G.I.O.N." but can it save this series?

Daredevil #507

Mon, June 14th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Daredevil" wraps up its prelude to "Shadowland," but it's unfortunately a tiny bit predictable.
