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.

Grifter #4

Sat, December 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Grifter" is losing a little steam, and a pointless encounter with Green Arrow is part of the problem.

Green Lantern #4

Sat, December 17th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Green Lantern" is showing potential, but the pace is far slower than it needs to be.

Suicide Squad #4

Thu, December 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Suicide Squad" continues to improve every issue, and this issue is no exception.

Avengers Academy #23

Thu, December 15th, 2011 | Category: Review

X-23 joins "Avengers Academy" right as everything is poised for disaster.

Batwoman #4

Wed, December 14th, 2011 | Category: Review

Still gorgeous, and the story's picking up, to boot.

The Shade
 #3

Wed, December 14th, 2011 | Category: Review

"The Shade" heads down under for what, to this non-Australian, feels like a nice change from cliché.

Hellblazer Annual 2011

Fri, December 9th, 2011 | Category: Review

23 years after the first one, "Hellblazer" gives us another Annual. It was actually worth the wait.

Static Shock #4

Thu, December 8th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Static Shock" is a little jumpy in places, but there are moments in here which are fantastic.

Justice League International #4

Thu, December 8th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Justice League International" is superheroes by the book, in every single way.

Valen the Outcast #1

Thu, December 8th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Valen the Outcast" has a great concept; now we need to see where it goes from here.

Stormwatch #4

Wed, December 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

The conclusion is a little too deus ex machina, but there's still a lot to like in "Stormwatch" #4.

Avenging Spider-Man #2

Wed, December 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Avenging Spider-Man" is fun and pretty, but it's also a little slight.

Swamp Thing #4

Wed, December 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

Did someone say "Dinosaur Swamp Thing?"

Fables #111

Mon, December 5th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Inherit the Wind" comes to less of a conclusion and more of a sudden stop.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1

Thu, December 1st, 2011 | Category: Review

"T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" returns, with a story barely about the actual agents. Great for returning readers, not so much for new readers.

Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #3

Wed, November 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

David Petersen's "Mouse Guard" continues to enthrall, issue after issue.

FF #12

Wed, November 30th, 2011 | Category: Review

"FF" continues on after "Fantastic Four" returns, but the art choice is sabotaging the story.

Alpha Flight #6

Fri, November 25th, 2011 | Category: Review

It's a shame "Alpha Flight" is back to being a limited series, because this is thoroughly entertaining.

Dark Horse Presents #6

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

There's a lot to love about the latest "Dark Horse Presents" to more than cover for an occasional misstep.

Justice League Dark #3

Wed, November 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Justice League Dark" is in the dreaded "middle issue" phase, which is still good, just not as great as the first two.
