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.

X-Factor #227

Wed, November 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

Don't let the joking fool you, "X-Factor" is in some dark territory.

Justice League #3

Wed, November 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

Little by little, "Justice League" is coming together, and by that I don't just mean the main characters.

New Mutants #34

Wed, November 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

Blink's back! But not the one you all knew and loved in "Exiles."

Batman #3

Wed, November 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

A slow build to a nasty revelation is part of what makes "Batman" so great.

Superboy #3

Fri, November 11th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Superboy" continues to be pleasantly fun, with a last-page reveal that most figured out two issues ago.

Demon Knights #3

Fri, November 11th, 2011 | Category: Review

Let's face it, this is really "Justice League Medieval."

Huntress #2

Thu, November 10th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Huntress" brings a solid hero-versus-crime- family story to life.

Penguin: Pain and Prejudice #2

Thu, November 10th, 2011 | Category: Review

This might be familiar ground for the Penguin, but it's so enjoyable I can't complain.

Batgirl #3

Thu, November 10th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Batgirl" is all over the place, but not in a good way.

Batman and Robin #3

Wed, November 9th, 2011 | Category: Review

This issue is more "Robin and Batman" than "Batman and Robin," and I like it.

Batwing #3

Thu, November 3rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Batwing" isn't bad, but it's losing a bit of steam.

Men of War #3

Thu, November 3rd, 2011 | Category: Review

"Men of War" loses a bit of what made the first two issues more interesting, but at least the back-up story concludes.

Action Comics #3

Wed, November 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

It's the flashback within a flashback that will grab your attention.

The Strange Talent of Luther Strode #2

Wed, November 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

"The Strange Talent of Luther Strode" is strange and disturbing, and its creators are talented. There's even someone called Luther Strode.

American Vampire #20

Wed, November 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

Never mind that this is part 2 of 3, "American Vampire" #20 stands on its own wonderfully.

All-Star Western #2

Sat, October 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

"All-Star Western" adds an El Diablo backup to the mix, and it's devilishly fun.

Legion: Secret Origin #1

Sat, October 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

The Legion's early days get re-examined and slightly tweaked in this new mini-series.

The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #2

Thu, October 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

It's a good thing "Firestorm" fans are so patient, because they're going to need to wait a while longer.

I, Vampire #2

Thu, October 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

I'm still not sure how this fits into the rest of the DC Universe, but "I, Vampire" is good enough that I ultimately don't care.

Voodoo #2

Thu, October 27th, 2011 | Category: Review

Reading "Voodoo" makes me feel like we're getting a comic adaptation of a hot new action thriller film.
