INTERVIEW: Spencer Declassifies "Captain America: Steve Rogers'" Hydra Secrets, Cosmic Connections
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.

Original, rejected title: "War of the Vats of Molasses."
Dark Horse's flagship anthology is back, and in color... but can it find the magic once more?
"T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" #6 acts as epilogue to the last story and lead-in to the next, but manages to do both without any real energy.
"R.E.B.E.L.S." has found some of its old spark, but with one issue left it's a little too late.
The first Tomasi and Gleason storyline comes to a close, but without differentiating itself from any of the other Bat-titles.
Most fans will pick this up for the "Flashpoint" hints and teases, but it's the other half of the issue that is the real winner.
Bad news, "Superboy" fans, it's time for another chapter of "Reign of Doomsday."
That's right, it's yet another previously untold tale of an early Superman and Batman team up. (Just how many of them are there?)
The real mystery behind "Who Is Jake Ellis?" is really, "Why isn't everyone buying this book?"
The bad news: "Herc" is distinctly different than "Incredible Hercules." The good news: it's still fun.
"JSA All-Stars" begins its final storyline, and so far it looks to be one of its better efforts.
Everything comes together in a mass of exposition.
Liz Sherman's past and a trip to Salem! It's a story made for "B.P.R.D."
We're at the halfway point, and "Avengers: The Children's Crusade" has yet to waver in quality.
"Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever" feels a bit meandering, but the art is so beautiful that it's hard to care.
Once again, proof that there is no such thing as a "bad character." All you need is the right take.
Hey kids, let's talk it out.
It's time for Uatu go to Weight Watchers.
"American Vampire" begins its second year with a trip into World War II, but this is no ordinary war story.
Is that you, Grant Morrison?
