X-POSITION: Phoenix, Upstarts & More Tear Up Bowers & Sims' "X-Men '92"
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.

"Thunderbolts" versus behemoths from Monster Island? Oh, yeah.
The only astonishing thing here, unfortunately, is the dullness.
The X-Men are still sick, Dazzler is still luminous, Sebastian Shaw is still dangerous, and Greg Land is still photo-referencing.
Can you say, "Esirprus pukcab erutaef," kids? I thought you could.
This side-step after the climactic "Fables" #100 is so satisfying you'll be dying to find out what happens next with these minor characters.
The actual telling of the "Shazam!" special isn't bad, but the it's the basic idea behind it that seems off-center.
21 years later, the pairing of Wolverine and Jubilee still works.
Royal wedding? Bah. The latest "Hellblazer" gives us a far more entertaining 2011 British nuptial to eavesdrop on.
When your next big crossover starts in March, any existing storyline will drag out until a February conclusion.
I always did like Joss Whedon's season epilogues.
A glimpse at what could have been from Nick Spencer on "Supergirl," and the hope that James Peaty can follow through.
For a first-time reader of the Winick/Basri "Power Girl," it's an enjoyable introduction.
Tony Daniel's "Batman" keeps the fun going strong.
At the two-thirds mark, something finally happens.
Introducing a new "Teen Titans" member, "Wonder Girl" is good but not, well, wonderful.
Crazy Marvel Team-Up? Yeah, but it works.
The conclusion of the crossover with "Action Comics" is slightly hampered by some stiff- looking art.
Chaykin's art doesn't really mesh with Cafu's, but at the same time you don't really care because it looks so great.
In which Max Lord's plan starts kicking into high gear.
"B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: Gods" doesn't just provide a jumping on point, but a great issue of the series to boot.
