WATCH: Batman Unmasked in New "Batman v Superman" Footage
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.

It's another flashback to "Batman R.I.P." and "Final Crisis," but the real reason to stick around is Marco Rudy's page layouts.
"Legion of Super-Heroes" is telling a classic Legion story here, and I mean that in a positive way.
"Skullkickers" is a nice enough debut, but I feel like the book is only getting started when it hits "to be continued."
This issue feels like a transition point towards next month's conclusion, but it's a fast-paced one at that.
As we bid goodbye to penciler Ardian Syaf, it's a solid conclusion to Tony Bedard's first storyline.
This first storyline in "Finding Nemo" is good enough to be a sequel movie to the original.
It feels childish at first, but the more I read of "Mickey Mouse and Friends" the more I found myself drawn in.
It's a day in the life of the Thunderbolts, now with added Shadowland.
As "DC Universe Legacies" moves into the realm of "Crisis on Infinite Earths," the book is picking up somewhat.
After its initial, exciting storyline, "Birds of Prey" feels slightly rushed this month.
The idea of a stone age CBGB is amusing, but this issue's lead story stretches on a bit too long.
"X-Men" is serving up a solid little story that fits well with Fraction and Carey's X-Books.
"Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom" is telling a story with a writer who has a lack of imagination, but I think it's inadvertently hitting too close to home.
Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving ramp this storyline up and we get a large payoff from the last year of the title.
I have no idea who the target audience is for this book. I'm not sure there is one.
