Most of you know I've been a journalist, mostly as a copy editor, for many, many moons. I did start out as a reporter for a not-even-semi-metropolitan daily newspaper, but most of my writing for the past several years is what I've posted here in various iterations of the Comics Cave.

Late last year, a dear friend steered me to a freelance job writing about comics. I applied, armed with writing samples culled from what I've posted here and kind guidance from some stalwart members of the Legion. They liked what they saw, but asked for an original sample ... then put me on a trial basis. 

So, I am now writing lists for I'm supposed to do two or three a week, and they're on comics, or comics-related movies, or comics-related TV shows. My latest one is a topic near and dear to my heart: "The 15 Best Comic Book Journalists". An archive of my other lists are here.

Of course, I can trust you guys with my secret identity, being fellow members of the Legion. I'm sure no one has any secret protocols to take me out in case I go rogue ....

...At least 2 of your citations in the " Recalled " piece are not, in fact, cited as having been physically called back, the X-MEN GOLD and BATGIRL/Joker ones. The X-Men one we n was was what I thought the article would be more about, comics that ran into controversy due to, whether intented or Naughty Stuff sneaked in by an artist or even a misprint, attracted criticism. Sticking to just the DCU and MU, I can think of several just from " modern times "! The facts about miscopyright, etc. were interesting themselves, though.

I'm back! 

Some unfortunate reshuffling meant I lost by CBR gig last year. I'm back on their roster, now as a news writer. Here's my first piece: "A Major Star Trek: TNG Prop Was Repurposed From Hunt for Red Octob...
