SDCC: "Batman: The Killing Joke" Cast & Crew Debuts Film at Comic-Con International
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.

As "Flashpoint" wraps up, the moment that everyone's been waiting for feels tacked on and disconnected from the rest of the comic.
"Justice League" #1 begins the new origin for the team, but this might not have been the best tactic for the first issue.
On the eve of a Superman relaunch, this "DC Retroactive" comic is more comforting than I'd have imagined.
"Flashpoint: Project Superman" wraps up with a strange mixture of sadness and creepiness.
One final time: "Bwahahahahahahaha!"
The latest "Batman Incorporated" feels more like a gimmick than a strong story.
"Uncanny X-Force" shows us how an alternate- timeline story can still carry a punch.
With the Inhumans side-story concluded, "FF" lurches back into action, but the momentum is lost.
In which everything goes into the fire, literally. And Giant Sized Man Thing makes his return.

Sometimes you don't remember how good something was until your memory gets jogged.
"Fables" is back with a vengeance. Time for Bufkin the winged monkey, North Wind, and much more.
A sad combination of trite and predictable. Legion goes out in a rush, with the storytelling suffering for it.
In "Superboy," don't expect every storyline to get wrapped up.
