Eruditorum Press

Don’t look at the future. We drew something awful on it.

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 have some ethical concerns about the "haunted comic book" idea, especially given the particulars of the magical system in which Morrison works

    Can you explain this a bit more? I'm not clear on how putting a haunted comic book in a comic would be unethical..?

    "Wicked + Divine" is the first comic i've real in issue-by-issue format since the early '90s. It's been fun picking up the issue every month, but the frustrations start to mount.

    so issue #3 is basically two underworld gods bitching at each other (which is great), 1 amazing page w/Laura + her family scene & the rest of it's turned over to Exposition Cassandra to advance the plot just a bit + then we get a cliffhanger. In sequence w/6 other chapters this would be fine, but it feels frustrating and lumpy in installments. Maybe i'm just spoiled by mainly reading comics in trades. Still it's a brilliant book, though: this is a minor complaint.

    As I understand it (IANA occultist) Grant Morrison's magic system is based around the symbol becoming the fact, or something like that. He also thinks of his comics as magical rituals based on this principle.

    So by creating a comic in which (from what I've heard; my local comic shop is apparently going to get back to something resembling a schedule next week) You The Reader are a character, he actually does place You The Reader inside the ritual. Or something.

    Any criticism of Grant Morrison's Multiversity must be balanced against the fact that…

    IT SERIOUSLY HAS CAPTAIN CARROT AS A CHARACTER!

    Sorry to shout but surely that's enough to forgive him anything.

    Completely with you on Blue Rose. No idea whatsoever what Ellis is up to, but I am champing at the bit to find out.
