PREVIEWS: "Daredevil," "Uncanny X-Men," & More Marvel Comics On Sale August 3, 2016
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.

Fill-in artists and scripters result in a slightly rushed lead-up to the finale.
"Flashpoint" inches towards a conclusion, as characters blip on and off the page.
The team-members who left a few issues ago? They're back.
"Lost Legions" is already moving towards a conclusion, which makes this story much more concise and peppy than it first looked.
This is one of the few "Flashpoint" tie-ins that appears to have a clear purpose.
Remove Ben Oliver and a lot of the pep leaves with him.
Forget horror, this is a good old-fashioned war comic.
Time for one final trip into the Deadly Desert. It's Cinderella versus Dorothy to the end!
The conclusion to "Phantom Pains" is just all right in the plot department, but the character notes are what will hold your interest.
It's a race to the conclusion! Can Paul Levitz scramble to wrap things up?
Nothing stops the Juggernaut! Not even a "Fear Itself" crossover event in which someone has to yank off his helmet. But who? And how?
The purpose of "Flashpoint: The Outsider" is still a little perplexing, even at the two-thirds mark.
The Wonder Woman versus Aquaman conflict continues to play out, but it's distinctly less exciting once all the facts are out.
For an origin that's about to get wiped out, an awful lot of time is being spent on it, here.
The Atlantis/New Themyscira war that's not really appearing in "Flashpoint?" It's in here.
And now, an issue of "FF" without any of the 16+ regular cast members appearing. Instead, it's the return of the Inhumans!
Liz Sherman returns, and new artist Tyler Crook steps on board.
Nobody does apocalypse quite like Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo.
"Secret Six" looks determined to end with a bang, not a whimper. The protagonists are still villains, and Gail Simons reminds us of that this month.
"Adventure Comics" winds down with a graduation ceremony, and the return of an old villain.
