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.

    A1 was such a fun book; in a lot of ways it was the anthology people wanted Warrior to be. A couple minor points, though: “The House of Hearts Desire” and “A Quiet Christmas With the Family” were in issue #3, not #4. And "Our Factory Fortnight" was in black & white in the True Life Bikini Confidential special, without the red wash.

    "Song of the Terraces" is just an amazing little story; it's pretty much the only time I've ever actually felt like I've heard a song in a comic. Which doesn't stop others, and Moore himself, from occasionally trying and failing to convey the effect elsewhere.

    Man I remember A1 too – what a blast from my past! they were great volumes. Really enjoying reading about the Bojeffries saga, I am sure I would have read some of it back in the day but had little memory of it.

    Figure 705 is a pretty amazing piece of artwork.

    A1 is also, of course, one of the key early fronts in the war. In the 7 issues, not only do Moore and Morrison show up, but Neil Gaiman and Warren Ellis are also in there. Other than the almost impossible to find Food for Thought, which gets 3 of those creators in a single issue, it's hard for me to think of a more concentrated front of the war. (2000 AD gets everybody at some point, but spread out over a fairly wide range of progs.)

    (a fairly straightforward homage to Vyv of The Young Ones)

    A real stretch, I think – the typographical joke is the point, so the slight visual similarity is more likely a coincidence.

    Fantagraphics’ Dagoda

    Dalgoda. Possibly worth mentioning that the rest of the Warrior material (iirc) was colourised and run as backups in Dalgoda subsequently, as an example of how Moore was making his incursions into American territories on multiple fronts at this time? It seems clear that the ready lure of readies was all that distracted him back towards DC over and over, as the AH Preview Special listings for “Alan Moore’s Comic” and “Dodgem Logic” failed to deliver on the Fantagraphian promise of In Pictopia, year after year.

    I thought I could hear the loo-oony song in "The Killing Joke."
