Bio: Greg McElhatton has written reviews about comics of all shapes and sizes since 1999 after an ill-timed, "Sure, I'd love to write a review or two" snowballed horribly out of control. He originally wrote 1000 reviews for for iComics.com, then in mid-2006 launched his new review site for Read About Comics. He is also part of the new review team for Comic Book Resources.
Greg was been involved with running the Small Press Expo (SPX) from 1997 to 2012, including taking the role of Executive Director from 2001-2003, and the head of the Ignatz Awards from 2007-2010.
Last but certainly not least, he wrote two years of the Things To Come for Ninth Art, was an Eisner Awards judge in 2002, has co-edited two of the SPX anthologies, and contributed an essay to the 2005 edition of Year's Best Graphic Novels, Comics & Manga from St. Martin's Press.
In his spare time, he runs marathons.
