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.

    Was Crafty’s world the best art Chaz Truog did for Animal Man? Is it possible he was just totally mismatched for superheroes whilst still having skill at other elements? Or am I just misremembering the issue?

    I posted a long comment about Truog on the installment before this. TLDR, I think he’s an underrated artist who actually did some good-to-excellent work on this series — mullet haircuts notwithstanding.

    But yeah, this particular issue is a high point. And not just Crafty’s world! Look at the resurrection sequence, and the final splash panel with the wild-eyed Crafty and the wheeling vultures. Then look at the panel above, with his subsequent resurrection several pages later. The parallelism is very well done. There’s a bunch of stuff like that in this issue.

    Oh Ell! that is both an amazing parallel between Urizen and the coyote, and the transition between the paragraphs when it happened! Love it.

    I think I rather like Truog’s artwork too, I can see how it really sings in the panels above and in Crafty’s world. I love the phrase in panel 1202 that describes how the dead eyes looked like how they were “glazed like pots”.
