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.

Realm of Kings: Inhumans #3

Sun, January 24th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Realm of Kings: Inhumans" is getting a tiny bit by-the-numbers predictable, unfortunately.

Joe the Barbarian #1

Thu, January 21st, 2010 | Category: Review

"Joe the Barbarian" is off to a slightly slow start, but given the gist of the series, it makes sense.

Uncanny X-Men #520

Wed, January 20th, 2010 | Category: Review

The story is good, but the blatant photo-references in the art are getting harder to ignore.

The Marvels Project #5

Tue, January 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

Fans of Brubaker and Epting's "Captain America" will definitely want to read this title if they aren't already.

Daytripper #2

Tue, January 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

With its second issue, the idea behind "Daytripper" is starting to become a bit clearer. Perhaps.

Batman #695

Tue, January 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

Tony Daniel is putting a lot of characters into the mix, but nothing gets lost in the shuffle.

Secret Six #17

Mon, January 18th, 2010 | Category: Review

The Secret Six squaring off against the Suicide Squad during Blackest Night seems so natural, it's almost creepy.

Adventure Comics #6

Mon, January 18th, 2010 | Category: Review

Even as an oversized issue, "Adventure Comics" #6 feels a little rushed.

New Mutants #9

Thu, January 7th, 2010 | Category: Review

Could it be? Is "New Mutants" finally done setting up its status quo?

Stumptown #2

Thu, January 7th, 2010 | Category: Review

Was your New Year's resolution to only read good comics? "Stumptown" will help you with that.

Cable #22

Tue, January 5th, 2010 | Category: Review

The two year "Cable" time travel story lurches towards a conclusion, and the book perks up a bit as a result.

Punisher MAX: Get Castle #1

Tue, January 5th, 2010 | Category: Review

Don't let the Welsh setting fool you, there's nothing out of the ordinary in this Punisher story.

Blackest Night #6

Wed, December 30th, 2009 | Category: Review

"Blackest Night" #6 in some ways feels like a fan game come to life, but in a fun and entertaining way.

Chew #7

Sun, December 27th, 2009 | Category: Review

Two bites into its second course, "Chew" is still delivering the deliciousness.

Punisher #12

Sun, December 27th, 2009 | Category: Review

This issue focuses more on the Legion of Monsters, but that's actually the real attraction for this story.

X-Men Legacy #231

Sun, December 27th, 2009 | Category: Review

"X-Necrosha" finally hits "X-Men: Legacy," and Mike Carey's book is perfectly suited to looking at those deceased mutants of the past.

Justice Society of America #34

Sat, December 26th, 2009 | Category: Review

Bill Willingham's first solo issue of "Justice Society of America" reminds me a lot of the old Geoff Johns "JSA." That's a good thing.

The Incredible Hercules #139

Sat, December 26th, 2009 | Category: Review

"Incredible Hercules" this month is little more than two teams meeting and fighting, but it's an awfully entertaining fight.

Fantastic Four #574

Fri, December 25th, 2009 | Category: Review

Happy Birthday, Franklin Richards! Hope you survive the experience.

Azrael #3

Mon, December 21st, 2009 | Category: Review

"Azrael" is definitely finding its voice, and it's probably not what you'd expect.
