Comic Book Crossovers Do Battle at Fantasy

finalcrisis-deathofbatman02-smFantasy Magazine has published my latest column, “Battle of the Comic Book Mega-Crossovers: Final Crisis vs. Secret Invasion.”  It’s a fun look at the galaxy-spanning crossovers that Marvel and DC put out over the past year, including some nice visuals.

Check it out, and while you’re there, check out some of their other awesome stuff, including stories by Michael Greenhut and Peter Ball, which made Fantasy’s top five stories for 2008 as voted on by readers.

2009 as we imagined it

I have a new article up at Fantasy Magazine, cataloging some of the events in speculative fiction that were said to take place in 2009 – from Star Trek time travel and The Master’s conquest of Earth in Dr. Who to David Brin’s post-apocalyptic The Postman and the more recent monster movie Cloverfield.  Whoever did the graphics and layout did a great job on the design for the article, as is always the case at Fantasy.

You’re likely to see more nonfiction from me at Fantasy this year, so keep an eye out for it.

Latino Superheroes at Fantasy

In case any of you haven’t caught it, an expanded version of my post on the top Latino superheroes has been published online by Fantasy magazine, complete with pretty graphics and interesting follow-up conversation in the comments section.

And while you’re there, check out some of the other cool articles and stories there – it’s one of the best online fantasy magazines, IMO.
