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, 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.

R.E.B.E.L.S. #20

Thu, September 2nd, 2010 | Category: Review

Red Lantern rings and Brainiac and Lobo, oh my!

Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard #3

Wed, September 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

"Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard" #3 isn't as strong as the earlier issues, but even then it's still entertaining.

Guarding the Globe #1

Sat, August 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

I hate to say it, but the fake advertising campaign for "Guarding the Globe" was more amusing than the real thing.

X-Men Legacy #239

Fri, August 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

The new "X-Men Legacy" story is one that you might enjoy more in theory than practice.

Thor #613

Thu, August 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

Considering the title is just biding time until Matt Fraction and Pasqual Ferry arrive, "Thor" has been a pleasant read.

Outsiders #32

Thu, August 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

There's no nice way to say this: "Outsiders" is a big mess.

Muppet Show #9

Thu, August 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

Statler and Waldorf in love. (No, not with each other.) Need I say more?

Curse of the Mutants: Blade #1

Thu, August 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Curse of the Mutants: Blade" isn't bad, but feels unnecessary.

Legion of Super-Heroes #4

Wed, August 25th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Legion of Super-Heroes" continues to provide good old-fashioned fun.

Wonder Woman #602

Wed, August 25th, 2010 | Category: Review

The all-new "Wonder Woman" is already proving to be a little dull, unfortunately.

New Mutants #16

Sat, August 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

The New Mutants aren't here to take your call this month, but at the sound of the tone prepare for a lot of back story. *beep*

Avengers Academy #3

Fri, August 20th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Avengers Academy" is probably the best thing to come out of "Age of Heroes."

DV8: Gods and Monsters #5

Fri, August 20th, 2010 | Category: Review

Brian Wood and Rebekah Isaacs continue to deconstruct (and rebuild) "DV8" and it makes me yearn for more.

Uncanny X-Men #527

Thu, August 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

A potentially interesting issue is derailed by increasingly ineffective art.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Riley #1

Thu, August 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Riley" doesn't have much of a story, but the high point is watching Riley and Sam interact.

Secret Avengers #4

Thu, August 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

The conclusion to the first "Secret Avengers" storyline feels a little flat.

Batgirl #13

Thu, August 12th, 2010 | Category: Review

Slowly but surely, "Batgirl" is pulling itself together into a respectable little book.

B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth: New World #1

Wed, August 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

The B.P.R.D. gets a new subtitle and offers up a good jumping-on point for new readers.

The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles #2

Wed, August 11th, 2010 | Category: Review

When Cthulhu calls, it calls collect.

New Mutants Forever #1

Tue, August 10th, 2010 | Category: Review

I have to hand it to all parties involved: this feels like it came immediately after "New Mutants" #54.
