"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Film, Comic Books
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.

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.
"iZombie" suddenly starts converging its characters and plots, and I'm pleased as punch.
If there's a plot here, it's hard to find.
"Knight of Vengeance" remains the crown jewel of the "Flashpoint" stories.
"Superboy" is deep into its endgame from Jeff Lemire and Pier Gallo.
"Usagi Yojimbo" continues to be a model of consistency.
This feels more like an issue of "Generation Hope" than "Uncanny X-Men."
It's a brisk read, but Ben Oliver's art sure is pretty.
"Flashpoint Oliver Queen is a jerk." Printing those five words over and over again might have been more entertaining.
