Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
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.

Considering the title is just biding time until Matt Fraction and Pasqual Ferry arrive, "Thor" has been a pleasant read.
There's no nice way to say this: "Outsiders" is a big mess.
Statler and Waldorf in love. (No, not with each other.) Need I say more?
"Curse of the Mutants: Blade" isn't bad, but feels unnecessary.
"Legion of Super-Heroes" continues to provide good old-fashioned fun.
The all-new "Wonder Woman" is already proving to be a little dull, unfortunately.
The New Mutants aren't here to take your call this month, but at the sound of the tone prepare for a lot of back story. *beep*
"Avengers Academy" is probably the best thing to come out of "Age of Heroes."
Brian Wood and Rebekah Isaacs continue to deconstruct (and rebuild) "DV8" and it makes me yearn for more.
A potentially interesting issue is derailed by increasingly ineffective art.
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Riley" doesn't have much of a story, but the high point is watching Riley and Sam interact.
The conclusion to the first "Secret Avengers" storyline feels a little flat.
Slowly but surely, "Batgirl" is pulling itself together into a respectable little book.
The B.P.R.D. gets a new subtitle and offers up a good jumping-on point for new readers.
When Cthulhu calls, it calls collect.
I have to hand it to all parties involved: this feels like it came immediately after "New Mutants" #54.
Zombies and ghosts and mummies! Oh my!
And now for something completely different.
"Hawkeye & Mockingbird" is fun, but there's that niggling feeling that it could be better.
I had to keep double-checking that the title of this comic is still "Secret Warriors" and not "S.H.I.E.L.D."
