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.

    Saga is one of those books that I can appreciate the craft on, but that has utterly and completely failed to engage me in practice. It's not that I haven't given in a fair try; thanks to the humble bundle a little while back I've read the first two collections.

    I think it's possible Vaughan just doesn't work for me, although I really can't understand why. I was absolutely amazed by the first issue of Y and actually kept going on that until somewhere in the 30's, at which point I realized I hadn't actually read an issue in a year and dropped it.

    Anybody else have someone like that? A creator who you recognize as very good, doing books that you should love based on your normal interests, who almost always falls flat for you.

    I'm having trouble getting behind Kieron Gillen's stuff, to be honest. I tried a trade of Phonogram and while I recognize a lot of things in it I theoretically dig, I just didn't see a lot of there there. I'm dutifully buying The Wicked and the Divine and while it's worth it for the art alone (always a key point for me with comics), I'm left hoping the story hooks me more once it's done introducing its characters.

    I'm 100% on board with Saga, though. On balance I dig Vaughn — I loved Runaways and I thought Ex Machina was brilliant. Y the Last Man didn't do much for me, though, except as a joke around the house ("why the last man?" my girlfriend and I would say to each other).

    I know the feeling you're talking about. It's super frustrating.
