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.

Secret Warriors #18

Thu, August 5th, 2010 | Category: Review

I had to keep double-checking that the title of this comic is still "Secret Warriors" and not "S.H.I.E.L.D."

Baltimore: The Plague Ships #1

Wed, August 4th, 2010 | Category: Review

For those of us who didn't read the "Baltimore" novel, this mini-series starts off a bit slowly and predictably.

X-Men Legacy #238

Sun, August 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

"X-Men Legacy" heads off to India but there's more to this story than a love for the country's delicious cuisine.

Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #4

Thu, July 29th, 2010 | Category: Review

A Grant Morrison script undone by the art? Well, that's never happened before.

Justice League: Generation Lost #6

Thu, July 29th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Justice League: Generation Lost" gets a motivation more than "he's a bad guy."

Detective Comics #867

Wed, July 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

There's a good idea in this issue of "Detective Comics," but it's not quite coming together.

Green Lantern Corps #50

Wed, July 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

Bedard brings back the Cyborg Superman and thankfully keeps his most interesting motivation on board.

The Flash #4

Wed, July 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

This month's issue of "The Flash" feels both classic and modern at the same time, which is a nice twist.

Zatanna #3

Tue, July 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

The end of the first "Zatanna" storyline is a bit predictable, but the art is still gorgeous.

Supergirl #54

Mon, July 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

Sterling Gates moves "Supergirl" past the last year's worth of tie-ins and crossovers and goes back to making this title fun.

Brightest Day #6

Mon, July 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Brightest Day" is still all over the map, creatively and fictionally.

DC Universe Legacies #3

Mon, July 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

"DC Universe Legacies" is bringing out the big artistic guns in this retelling of the world's history, but it's also a little dull.

Batman: Streets of Gotham #14

Wed, July 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

Remember when the second features were announced and we were promised variable page lengths for them? It finally happened.

Time Masters: Vanishing #1

Wed, July 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

I wanted this first issue to convince me "Time Masters" was necessary, but when the dust settles... not so much.

Scott Pilgrim Vol. 6: Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour

Mon, July 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

Is this really, as the title states, Scott Pilgrim's finest hour? I'd say so.

Birds of Prey #3

Sat, July 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

It's a little erratic, but the conclusion can still pull "Birds of Prey" together.

Adventure Comics #516

Sat, July 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

Oh, "Adventure Comics," what went wrong?

The Thanos Imperative #2

Sat, July 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

If this is the last of the Marvel cosmic books for a while, it's going out with a fairly large bang.

Batman #701

Wed, July 14th, 2010 | Category: Review

Grant Morrison and Tony Daniel return to the final moments of "Batman R.I.P." and provide the bridge to "Final Crisis" that readers had wanted.

X-Men: Second Coming #2

Wed, July 14th, 2010 | Category: Review

This final issue of "Second Coming" is mostly epilogue, but it also sets up new status quos for most of the main mutant titles.
