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.

Wed, January 4th, 2012 | Category: Review

"Detective Comics" tries to balance two features, but it's an uneven match.

Unlike a fine wine, "Superman" is not improving with age.

Thu, December 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

Thu, December 22nd, 2011 | Category: Review

It's not easy being Blue Beetle, and that's part of the attraction of the series.
