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.

Astro City: The Dark Age: Book Four #2

Sat, March 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Astro City: The Dark Age" rumbles towards its conclusion, and while it's nice to see things coming together, I wish it'd happened faster.

Punisher: Butterfly #1

Sat, March 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

A collection of clich├ęs don't make a story entertaining, and at $4.99 even less so.

JSA All-Stars #4

Fri, March 5th, 2010 | Category: Review

"JSA All-Stars" is already starting to feel a little tired, which isn't good when you're just hitting issue #4.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight #33

Fri, March 5th, 2010 | Category: Review

Once you get past the reveal of Twilight this issue (spoiled months ago in the press), this issue is a mound of exposition.

Invincible Iron Man #24

Tue, March 2nd, 2010 | Category: Review

Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca finish up their second year of "Invincible Iron Man" with the satisfying return of Tony Stark.

Ultimate Enemy #2

Thu, February 25th, 2010 | Category: Review

Halfway through the mini-series, "Ultimate Enemy" needs to pick up the pace.

X-Factor #202

Thu, February 25th, 2010 | Category: Review

"X-Factor" finishes up its first storyline post-renumbering, and it's a fun conclusion.

Nation X #3

Tue, February 23rd, 2010 | Category: Review

It's the strongest issue of "Nation X" to date, but it's a shame it isn't great instead of just good.

Secret Warriors #13

Tue, February 23rd, 2010 | Category: Review

Jonathan Hickman and Stefano Caselli continue to provide solid entertainment. Also, water is wet.

Thor #607

Tue, February 23rd, 2010 | Category: Review

Ragnarok and roll is the name of the game here

Guardians of the Galaxy #23

Sun, February 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

Sometimes, "everything you know is wrong" can actually be right.

Marvels: Eye of the Camera #6

Sun, February 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

As a conclusion to both this mini-series and "Marvels" in general, it was worth the wait.

Hulk #20

Thu, February 18th, 2010 | Category: Review

Now that the pattern is established, this issue is predictable, but at least it's entertaining.

Dark Avengers #14

Wed, February 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

If you're going to stall for a month, "Dark Avengers" shows a good way to do so.

Green Lantern Corps #45

Wed, February 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

I'm going to miss Tomasi and Gleason on "Green Lantern Corps," because it's going to be hard to replicate this kind of crazy.

Captain America #603

Wed, February 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

This would be a fairly standard issue of "Captain America" if it wasn't for its opening pages.

DMZ #50

Mon, February 15th, 2010 | Category: Review

"DMZ" hits 50 with an excellent look around the state of New York, offering something to old and new readers alike.

JSA All-Stars #3

Thu, February 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

"JSA All-Stars" is in a strange position thanks to odd scheduling, where its subplots are more interesting than the main story.

Batgirl #7

Thu, February 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Batgirl" is slowly finding its way, but it's not quite there yet.

Dark X-Men #4

Tue, February 9th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Dark X-Men" is continuing to be a fun read, but its nature as a secondary mini-series means that some of the focus is misplaced.
