INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
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.

Free of "Reign of the Doomsdays," it's business as usual in "Superboy."
It’s not bad, but you’re not getting enough bang for your buck here.
"War of the Green Lanterns" continues to inch forward.
"Silence of the Lambs" meets "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen."
Who is Leviathan?
A double-sized finale packs a big punch.
This is the sort of comic where you wish the big anniversary issue was less pages in length, not more.
Simon Cowell wants Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole to be the other judges... oh wait, wrong "X- Factor."
Cullen Bunn and ChrisCross's magically- themed story isn't bad, but it doesn't quite have the punch you'd expect either.
Month after month, "Legion of Super-Heroes" delivers solid super-hero entertainment.
The story reads like it was meant for a much younger audience, but the art is drop-dead gorgeous.
Original, rejected title: "War of the Vats of Molasses."
Dark Horse's flagship anthology is back, and in color... but can it find the magic once more?
"T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" #6 acts as epilogue to the last story and lead-in to the next, but manages to do both without any real energy.
"R.E.B.E.L.S." has found some of its old spark, but with one issue left it's a little too late.
The first Tomasi and Gleason storyline comes to a close, but without differentiating itself from any of the other Bat-titles.
Most fans will pick this up for the "Flashpoint" hints and teases, but it's the other half of the issue that is the real winner.
Bad news, "Superboy" fans, it's time for another chapter of "Reign of Doomsday."
That's right, it's yet another previously untold tale of an early Superman and Batman team up. (Just how many of them are there?)
The real mystery behind "Who Is Jake Ellis?" is really, "Why isn't everyone buying this book?"
