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 ....

Enjoy! Share with your friends!

All my CBR stories may be found here:

I've previously done "The 19 Biggest Changes The CW Made to The Flash (And 1 That Is Unf.... It would make natural sense to write ones for Arrow and Black Lightning ... except I don't watch those shows and wouldn't know what to write. I am, however, open to suggestion. 

...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...

I haven't been promoting my CBR stories here lately (you can find all but one of them here*), but I'm touting this one, "SHIELD Is Now a Real Government Program in the US and Canada," just because it gave me the excuse I always wanted to spell out all of the version of what " S.H.I.E.L.D." means, plus a reason to write about The Man from U.N.C.L.E.T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and C.O.U.S.I.N. F.R.E.D.

Re. "20 Mistakes That Happened in the DC Movies 13: Get the Story!" (which is from late 2018 but I was offline then), is there such a thing as clothing with lead in the weave? An account of their dinner together could've made her famous.

Re. "Totally Recalled 13 Batgirl #41", I think I didn't like the cover and commented on it. The outcome, the artist requesting it be withdrawn, makes me regret it. He must've felt like he was being pursued by a mob.
