SDCC: Marvel's "Doctor Strange" Combats "Death and Pain" in New Trailer
Comic Books, Film
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.

In its third issue, "Avengers: X-Sanction" is starting to drag, although the end picks things up a bit.
Puppet-master Madame Rausch's origin is told in a creepy little story that stands entirely on its own.
"Angel & Faith" kicks off "Daddy Issues" with more father imagery than you can shake a stick at.
"The Sixth Gun" continues to thrill and impress, and this is a good jumping-on point.
"Teen Titans" and "Superboy" continue to play opposite sides of the coin, and that symmetry works best here.
Darkseid makes quick work of our heroes, but that's not the only thing that's a little bit messy about "Justice League" #5.
"Fantastic Four" is picking up the pace, as the latest storyline gets progressively more dangerous.
"Fables" #113 is fun, but feels remarkably unstructured.
"Captain Atom" has survived the culling of the "New 52" line. Curious what you've been missing?
It's voodoo time! (But not the comic book character named Voodoo. Just regular voodoo.)
No, you didn't miss an issue; the Birds of Prey are just as confused as you are.
A spotlight on Zoe amidst war games is intriguing, but is "Morning Glories" actually going anywhere?
"Prophet" goes French. Well, sort of.
"Snarked" wraps up its first story arc in a thoroughly entertaining way.
"The Shade" #4 has just about everything you want in a comic book.
"Wolverine & The X-Men" collides with "Uncanny X-Force" with shockingly good results.
There are still some rough edges to "Superboy," but it's turned into a fun little book.
"Captain America" sure is beautiful under Alan Davis's pencil.
Did someone say... riot?
There is nothing to fear but... oh, you know it by now.
