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, 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.

Month after month, "Legion of Super-Heroes" delivers solid super-hero entertainment.

Zatanna #12

Sat, April 23rd, 2011 | Category: Review

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

Tue, April 19th, 2011 | Category: Review

"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. #27

Thu, April 14th, 2011 | Category: Review

"R.E.B.E.L.S." has found some of its old spark, but with one issue left it's a little too late.

Batman and Robin #22

Wed, April 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

The first Tomasi and Gleason storyline comes to a close, but without differentiating itself from any of the other Bat-titles.

The Flash #10

Wed, April 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

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.

Superboy #6

Wed, April 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

Bad news, "Superboy" fans, it's time for another chapter of "Reign of Doomsday."

Superman #710

Wed, April 13th, 2011 | Category: Review

Thu, April 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

The real mystery behind "Who Is Jake Ellis?" is really, "Why isn't everyone buying this book?"

Herc #1

Thu, April 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

The bad news: "Herc" is distinctly different than "Incredible Hercules." The good news: it's still fun.

JSA All-Stars #17

Wed, April 6th, 2011 | Category: Review

"JSA All-Stars" begins its final storyline, and so far it looks to be one of its better efforts.

Liz Sherman's past and a trip to Salem! It's a story made for "B.P.R.D."

Avengers: The Children's Crusade #5

Wed, April 6th, 2011 | Category: Review

We're at the halfway point, and "Avengers: The Children's Crusade" has yet to waver in quality.

Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever #3

Wed, April 6th, 2011 | Category: Review

"Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever" feels a bit meandering, but the art is so beautiful that it's hard to care.

Jimmy Olsen #1

Sat, April 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review
