EXCLUSIVE: Sturges, Justus & Moore Live Happily "Everafter" in New "Fables" Series
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.

Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's "The Wicked + The Divine" #18 "is divinely fun, but it's wicked we have to wait a month for the next chapter."
Peter J. Tomasi and Mikel Janin's "Superman" #51 is just the beginning of a "strong note for the New 52 Superman to go out on."
"Every new issue is reason to celebrate," and Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples make no exception with "Saga" #35.
Tom King and Barnaby Bagenda's "The Omega Men" "is a smart series that never takes the easy way out and rewards readers more and more each issue."
Christos Gage and Megan Levens' "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10" #25 includes "a twist worthy of the original television show itself."
Mark Waid and Adam Kubert's "All-New All-Different Avengers" #7 "is a fun issue that comes in and achieves its goal quickly and efficiently."
Jeff Lemire, Humberto Ramos and Victor Ibanez kick off "Apocalypse Wars" with "Extraordinary X-Men" #8, "a fun issue."
"Max Landis and Francis Manapul have turned out one of the most definitive Superman comics" in "Superman: American Alien" #5.
G. Willow Wilson and Nico Leon's "Ms. Marvel" #5 "is another strong issue for one of the gems in Marvel's crown."
Greg Pak, Aaron Kuder and a handful of artists make "Action Comics" #50 "wonderfully dramatic" and "as Superman-esque as one could ever hope for."
Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk's "Mockingbird" #1 "is an utter blast" with "incredibly strong narration" and "strong but graceful" artwork.
Victor Gischler and Will Conrad's "Angel & Faith: Season 10" #24 strikes "a good balance" between its two major conflicts.
Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas' "The Astonishing Ant-Man" #5 "has it all: it's funny, it's serious, it's touching, it's ridiculous."
Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell's "Jem and the Holograms" #12 "is another hit single."
"Super-powered crime noir is a strange and specialized genre, but Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson turn out a real winner" in "Astro City" #32.
"Thanks to a fun story, handsome art and some good colors from Marte Gracia, Dan Slott and Matteo Buffagni's 'Amazing Spider-Man' #8 is a winner."
Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's "Sex Criminals" #14 "is the perfect example of why this series isn't just good -- it's great."
Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson and John Romita Jr. don't take the easy way out in "Dark Knight III: The Master Race" #3.
Dan Slott and Michael Allred's "Silver Surfer" #2 is "an excellent issue by an excellent creative team."
Victor Gischler and Will Conrad's "Angel & Faith: Season 10" #23 "gives readers something to get excited about."
James Tynion IV, Riley Rossmo and Brian Level step on board for "Batman" #52, and their story bodes well for Tynion's plans for the Dark Knight.
Mark Waid and Mahmud Asrar's "All-New, All-Different Avengers" #9 follows up the Wasp story from "Free Comic Book Day: Civil War II" and gives us something that can be read on its own, and it works on both fronts.
In the deliriously fun "The Fix" #2, Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber double down on corrupt cops Roy and Mac as they do anything and everything wrong, but with ruthless efficiency.
Steve Orlando, ACO and Hugo Petrus conclude both the storyline and the series by pitting Midnighter against the Suicide Squad and Henry Bendix in "Midnighter" #12, and it's a shame to see it end.
Natalie Riess' "Space Battle Lunchtime" #1 starts of a little slowly, but what this first issue lacks in speed, it makes up for in sheer charm as a pastry chef is whisked off to an intergalactic cooking competition.
The cats reign supreme in Evan Dorkin, Sarah Dyer and Jill Thompson's "Beasts of Burden: What the Cat Dragged In," which brings readers back to Burden Hill to discover the dark and extremely dangerous secret Dymphna has been hiding.
Kelly Thompson, Ben Caldwell and Ian Herring's remarkably fun "A-Force" #5 finds the team going up against two refugees from "Secret Wars."
Though Jim Zub and Nelson Daniel's "Dungeons & Dragons: Shadows of the Vampire" #1 begins in the Forgotten Realms, the series takes a group of mercenaries into the dangerous dimension of Ravenloft.
"Hellboy in Hell" #9 enters its final phase as Mike Mignola flashes back to Hellboy's time in Mexico even as our hero prepares to truly embrace his destiny in the underworld.
Tom King, Barnaby Bagenda, and Romulo Fajardo Jr.'s "The Omega Men" #11 gathers its forces and prepares for a final strike against the Citadel as the series prepares for its big conclusion.
"All-New Wolverine" #7 is a rather fluffy issue guest-starring Squirrel Girl, but -- fortunately -- Tom Taylor and Marcio Takara make it charmingly so while moving the book's larger storylines forward.
Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky bring trouble home to roost in "Sex Criminals" #15, where one character starts to lose interest in the central conceit of the comic.
In "Amazing Spider-Man" #11, Dan Slott, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Cam Smith wrap up the fight against Scorpio and the new Zodiac in a way that reminds readers of the necessity of Parker Industries.
As "Darkseid War" nears its conclusion, Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok move pieces into place for next month's climax, but "Justice League" #49's pawns feel less and less like people.
"Superman/Wonder Woman" #28 marks the halfway point of "The Final Days of Superman," but -- even as Peter J. Tomasi's script ties up more super-powered loose ends -- Ed Benes's art falls a little too flat.
Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas bring Scott Lang one step closer to jail in "Astonishing Ant-Man" #7.
In "Superman: American Alien" #6, Max Landis and Jonathan Case remind both the readers and Clark Kent that sometimes a visit from home is needed to snap everything back into perspective.
Jeff Lemire, Ramon Perez and Ian Herring bring their time with Team Hawkeye to a conclusion in "All-New Hawkeye" #6, and it's a thoroughly satisfying wrap-up as both past and present collide.
The first three pages of Jeff Lemire, Humberto Ramos and Victor Olazaba's "Extraordinary X-Men" #9 pull out all the stops, but -- after that -- the story of the junior X-Men's missing year gets a little too rote.
Marguerite Bennett, Mirka Andolfo and Laura Braga's "DC Comics Bombshells" #11 kicks the Battle of Britain into high gear as most of the characters unite to fight against the Tenebrae.
