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.

    As someone who mostly reads Marvel in the UK reprints, I have just encountered Bendis's Emma for the first time. Jeez, how hard is it to write Frasier Crane/Rarity from MLP style dialogue? Hint one: they don't say things like "gonna".

    I am now nervously reading his GotG, waiting for him to get Groot's speech patterns wrong as well. "I am, y'know, Groot."

    I know this is a comics article, but has anyone heard about the Ferguson, St Louis virtual police military state? You may think I'm joking, but innocent people are being teargassed, all media people are being told to leave, and the police are strapped like a Sontaran (full on military egar, to the point where even the military veterans are calling it insane). Whether or not you think the police or the civilians started it (and reports say started from the police cracking down on a originally nonviolent protest of a black boy shot by white cops), thing have gone too far. Here's the St Louis subreddit's live feed, so you can see for yourselves:

    Normally I wouldn't hijack your thread for this, Dr. Sandifer, but I consider this very serious. Frankly, the police in Ferguson are acting like the villains the Doctor would stop, and we'd call it "unrealistically evil baddies." But this is very real, very real rights are being trampled on, and very real people are being threatened and hurt. And this could get much, much, worse. So thank you in advance for letting me write this.

    I think everywhere is an appropriate place to discuss the appalling events taking place in Ferguson, this thread included.

    Ferguson has been all I've been looking at… I'd be very interested in hearing what you have to say on it, Dr. Sandifer.

    Its also been distressing that I've had to get all my news about it from twitter… Which ironically wasn't because journalists weren't trying to cover it. The arrest of journalists, and the tear gassing of an Al Jazeera America news crew (followed by the cops disassembling their equipment) just…. Ugh.

    ( I'm @arcbeatle on twitter if you've been following things on there.)

    Pretty big change in Ferguson now that the Local and County police have been replaced with State Troopers. There are still cruisers around but the fact that there's no longer open warfare is actually really heartening.
