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.

The Unwritten #12

Mon, April 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

"The Unwritten" presents a chilling one-off story that will keep you from ever looking at Winnie the Pooh the same way again.

Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers Unleashed #2

Sun, April 18th, 2010 | Category: Review

For an issue that's supposed to explain the main thrust of the story, this is an awfully long flashback starring Frog Thor.

The Savage Axe of Ares #1

Fri, April 16th, 2010 | Category: Review

For a character who's normally not terribly interesting, Ares fits quite well into the black and white anthology format.

Batman #698

Thu, April 15th, 2010 | Category: Review

Riddle me this... how strong can will a collaboration between Tony Daniel and Guillem March be?

Punisher MAX #6

Thu, April 15th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Punisher MAX" is still good, but is worryingly getting a little cartoonish in spots.

Daredevil #506

Tue, April 13th, 2010 | Category: Review

The frequency of "Daredevil" has slowed down a bit, but fortunately it's still proving to be entertaining.

Siege: Young Avengers #1

Tue, April 13th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Siege: Young Avengers" #1 makes me miss having a "Young Avengers" series, but in a good way.

Superman: Secret Origin #5

Mon, April 12th, 2010 | Category: Review

As "Superman: Secret Origin" gets closer to modern times, the issues are slightly less compelling, but still well-crafted.

Cable #25

Fri, April 9th, 2010 | Category: Review

As "Cable" comes to an end, his old co-star from "Cable & Deadpool" drops by for a strange prologue issue.

World War Hulks #1

Thu, April 8th, 2010 | Category: Review

As anthology comics go, "World War Hulks" is all right so long as you aren't expecting too much.

Deadpool Corps #1

Wed, April 7th, 2010 | Category: Review

Apparently, Marvel thinks fans of Deadpool will buy just about anything.

Ultimate X #2

Tue, April 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

If "Ultimate X" would just ditch the narration boxes, this would be a much better comic.

S.H.I.E.L.D. #1

Tue, April 6th, 2010 | Category: Review

Jonathan Hickman and Dustin Weaver's "S.H.I.E.L.D." is the best debut issue I've seen in a very long time.

Teen Titans #81

Sun, April 4th, 2010 | Category: Review

It's time to stop getting tricked by the lure of "Teen Titans."

Gotham City Sirens #10

Fri, April 2nd, 2010 | Category: Review

With a guest art team in this month, "Gotham City Sirens" is able to narrow down what wasn't working up until now.

Detective Comics #863

Thu, April 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

Despite being plagued with artist switcheroos, "Detective Comics" still makes you eager for more Batwoman.

Justice League of America #43

Thu, April 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

Have you ever gotten the impression that even the creative team of a title isn't sure what's happening behind the scenes?

The Punisher #15

Wed, March 31st, 2010 | Category: Review

"Frankencastle" continues to be surprisingly charming; this is a lot better than old stories, like when Captain America became a werewolf.

She-Hulk Sensational #1

Tue, March 30th, 2010 | Category: Review

A 30th anniversary "She-Hulk" special is a nice idea, but two of the three entries ignore that word "special."
