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.

    I seldom have anything to comment on here, since I'm mainly a DC fan, and your affections clearly lie elsewhere. But I've got to agree about the Convergence: The Question issue, which was a delight. I actually really enjoyed all of the Convergence tie-ins so far: the weakest of the lot was probably the Justice League issue, and I wouldn't call that bad so much as underwhelming. Which just makes the poor quality of the main Convergence series all the more confounding. Two issues into that and we've got basically a half-issue's worth of story, most of which is presented via overblown exposition that seems curiously self-conscious about the entire premise. It's as if the writers felt it was all far too complicated for the reader, which, frankly, it isn't. At all.

    The weird thing, for me, is that I've really been enjoying a lot of DC's "events" lately: the Multiversity is stellar, and, notwithstanding my problems with the Convergence flagship series, that event is shaping up to be a lot of fun. But with Swamp Thing ending (Charles Soule's recent run was incredible: probably the best since Alan Moore's departure), my pull list of monthly DC series is down to Batgirl. There are one or two new books coming out once the dust from Convergence settles this summer (like Bat-Mite), but there's honestly not much on the horizon from either DC or Marvel that appeals to me.
