Need advice? Ask an Expert...

This week I took a crack at writing my first Professor Expert column over at DC Comics' 52 website. Take a look here and maybe you'll learn something about yourself. Odds are against it, but you might as well give it a go.

Maybe now you can get that GED, Lex...

It's three in the morning on a Friday night and your husband says he has to leave to go "save a third world country" with Wonder Woman. You know Clark, that excuse doesn't really work when you come home smelling like Greek perfume with your "S" on all crooked.

Read about someone Lois hates even more than a seven-foot-tall Amazon in a tiara here in my latest article on DC's 52 website. Then someone talk some sense into Ms. Lane already. It's called neglect, Lois, and you don't have to take it.

Read your comics or no supper...

John Norris over at Comics in the Classroom wrote up a nice little review of The Batman Strikes! # 31. Check out his site and then buy some unsuspecting child an issue of something. But make sure it's a kid you don't know. That way the whole thing is extra creepy.

Black Adam strikes again...

Time for another serious article this week on DC Comics' 52 website. What'll that wacky Black Adam do next?

Probably kill many, many people.

Trust me, I wrote it...


While at the comic store yesterday, I was surprised to come across my new hardcover from DK Publishing, the revised version of Spider-Man: The Ultimate Guide. Although Tom DeFalco wrote the text for the majority of the book, I supplied the updated text for this new version, explaining the history of the last six years of Spidey's life.

So if you're in a comic and/or books store anytime soon, be sure to check it out. If you bring a magnifying glass you might even be able to read my credit on the title page...

At least they made a toy of her first...

So here's my latest Daily Planet article for the 52 website. It's a bit more serious this week since it deals with the death of Isis, a major character starring in this maxi-series. But come on, if you can't mourn for short-lived fictional characters, then who can you mourn for?

Nobody. That's who.

R.I.P. Ralph Dibny...

My newest article for the 52 series is up here on the DC website. They let me run a little long with this one, but I'm pretty happy with it. It's my farewell tribute to the Elongated Man, a minor DC hero from the sixties. And no, he's not called Elastic Man. You made that up yourself.
