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.

The bad news: "Herc" is distinctly different than "Incredible Hercules." The good news: it's still fun.
"JSA All-Stars" begins its final storyline, and so far it looks to be one of its better efforts.
Everything comes together in a mass of exposition.
Liz Sherman's past and a trip to Salem! It's a story made for "B.P.R.D."
We're at the halfway point, and "Avengers: The Children's Crusade" has yet to waver in quality.
"Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever" feels a bit meandering, but the art is so beautiful that it's hard to care.
Once again, proof that there is no such thing as a "bad character." All you need is the right take.
Hey kids, let's talk it out.
It's time for Uatu go to Weight Watchers.
"American Vampire" begins its second year with a trip into World War II, but this is no ordinary war story.
Is that you, Grant Morrison?
"War of the Green Lanterns" officially kicks off, and it's good if not great.
What promised to be a silly issue of "Fables" turns out to be more serious than you'd think.
Some of the out-of-character behavior is explained, but "Batman: The Dark Knight" is not proving to be worthy of its delays.
"Supergirl" has some fun guest stars, but also throws away what briefly made it different.
Our John Constantine, he's a nasty one.
It's a whale of a tale.
It's taken 15 years, but "Xombi" is back. That's a very good thing.
As the siege of Paris heats up, Wood and Gane bring the goods.
In which "Generation Hope" has to justify being a team in the new non-team era of the X-Men.
