Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later.Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    “It would be an exaggeration to say that Simpson anticipated the aesthetics of early-90s superhero design perfectly – New Flynn is still firmly a creature of the 80s. But nevertheless, it’s a design that wouldn’t have been entirely out of place in the early 90s.”

    I actually felt the need to google Rob Liefeld’s career to confirm that this grimacing, mulleted figure came two years before his first published work. Astonishing.

      Well, there’s a reason that Valentino thought it necessary / morally appropriate to bring Simpson in to do parodies of Image within their first year or so; as an older, and actual reading creator, he saw the way in which his partners’ work looked like a triangulation between DESTROY!!! and Megaton Man.

      Prior to this collaboration, Simpson was “cast” to be the artist on the long-gestating Convention Tension issue of Fantagraphics’ Dodgem Logic.

    Definitely gonna hunt down In Pictopia in some form as it really does sound worth a read and the kind of piece I would get nostalgia from reading now. Really have enjoyed you covering it. Wondered when Cerebus would get a mention – and just noticed that the In Pictopia section was in parentheses!

      In Pictopia is one of the things salvaged by Padraig O Mealoid over at glycon.livejournal.com

    Been really getting into the current sections in The War. Still one of my favourite pieces of writing on the web. Will miss it but have a good break and hope the writing goes well Phil!

    Is this still the most recent entry? Any chance you will be resuming Last War this fall?
