GIANT-SIZE X-POSITION: Duggan Goes Rogue in "Uncanny Avengers" & "Deadpool"
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.

"X-Factor" finishes up its first storyline post-renumbering, and it's a fun conclusion.
It's the strongest issue of "Nation X" to date, but it's a shame it isn't great instead of just good.
Jonathan Hickman and Stefano Caselli continue to provide solid entertainment. Also, water is wet.
Ragnarok and roll is the name of the game here
Sometimes, "everything you know is wrong" can actually be right.
As a conclusion to both this mini-series and "Marvels" in general, it was worth the wait.
Now that the pattern is established, this issue is predictable, but at least it's entertaining.
If you're going to stall for a month, "Dark Avengers" shows a good way to do so.
I'm going to miss Tomasi and Gleason on "Green Lantern Corps," because it's going to be hard to replicate this kind of crazy.
This would be a fairly standard issue of "Captain America" if it wasn't for its opening pages.
"DMZ" hits 50 with an excellent look around the state of New York, offering something to old and new readers alike.
"JSA All-Stars" is in a strange position thanks to odd scheduling, where its subplots are more interesting than the main story.
"Batgirl" is slowly finding its way, but it's not quite there yet.
"Dark X-Men" is continuing to be a fun read, but its nature as a secondary mini-series means that some of the focus is misplaced.
That was a strange ending. No pun intended.
At last! A purpose! Why did it take all the way until #10?
With the start of the second "Sweet Tooth" storyline, this mixture of past and future is a strong opening installment.
Keith Giffen keeps throwing ideas at the wall, but I'm not sure any of them are going to stick.
At the end of the day, the thing I liked the most about "Superman: World of New Krypton" may surprise you.
I'd like to think that we don't need any more, "and then two teams fight each other, one at a time" stories in comics.
