How "DC Universe: Rebirth" Fulfills Its Promise of Restoring Legacy to DC Comics
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.

Building a better superhuman isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Quite possibly the most anti-climactic end to a major story in "Fables" history, alas.
It's a tough life, being a dog.
Unfortunately, the exciting scene on the cover has nothing to do with the contents of this comic.
Where's Bart Allen? As it turns out, right where he should be.
What at first seems unremarkable may actually have an important plot point for "Flashpoint" buried inside of it.
Bit by bit, "Dark Horse Presents" is finding its new voice.
"Hellblazer" delights in faking out its audience, and its audience delights in being faked out.
Cornball dialogue goes a long way towards killing reader enthusiasm here.
Wrap it up!
This is just another reason to miss Bryan Q. Miller's take on "Batgirl," come September.
"Planet Red Hulk" wraps up with an ending that I suspect few will see coming.
As an example of Daniel's "Batman" run, this is not the one to look at.
"Samurai's Blood" is a pretty comic, but one that relies a bit too much on samurai cliché.
Title aside, this is a mixture of a lot of different good comics, and it works.
Be careful what you're bidding for in an author's estate sale.
