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 love 'Ms. Marvel'. I have nothing further of substance to add here.

    If bandwidth proves to be an issue, I recommend using Plus they can be grouped together there so people can easily find all the commentaries.

    [Comics I've been reading 5]: MPH #5 (Image) — I didn't see the main reveal of the final issue of this mini series coming. Mark Millar's latest additions to his intellectual property portfolio — Jupiter's Legacy, Starlight and MPH — are well-done, I think. Unfortunately, Starlight as well as MPH suffer from tepid conclusions, insofar as Mr. Millar checkboxes his plotlines too predictably in order to fulfill the conventions of Hollywood storytelling. I have nothing against happy endings (quite the contrary) but MPH piles it really on in this regard.

    You could always upload them to your Youtube channel, to live on in perpetuity?

    Have downloaded, but will be a while until I listen – I'm still reading through the brilliant Library entry!

    I know they announced Fables 150 was going to be 150 pages way back in March of last year. Which doesn't excuse the poor planning that means it's going to be months before we finally see it; but I don't think it's really a surprise. (And I agree, as much as I've enjoyed large chunks of the run I'm ready for Fables to be done.)

    And just listened to the commentary. Quite fun; are you planning on doing all of these with Jack or are you going to rotate your guest as you go along?

    I jumped off Fables (which I had been enjoying until that point) during the "Great Fables Crossover" when all the main cast treated Jack's taking the virtually comatose and withdrawn Rose Red as his fuck toy like it was a consensual relationship, and for which there appeared to be no consequences.

    So many Marvel and DC comics are now winding down to their respective company relaunches. All except the ones that are still stuck in big stories that are desperately trying to obscure the fact that nothing that occurs in them actually matters. I was slightly disappointed that Uncanny actually fixed everything. It would have been so much more entertaining if they'd gone ahead with "yes, Cyclops is really dead and professor X is back" because ultimately it doesn't matter. Plus it would have been fun when X caught up with his time-lost X-Men.

    Looking at your tumblr feed I'm amused to see that the banality of Jonathan Jones' art criticism for the Guardian is such as to be noticed from the other side of the Atlantic. (No, I haven't read the piece that triggered your latest remark. I only ever read him when I forget to look at the byline.)

    I just want to thank you for the commentary. I have to say, I absolutely loved it, and can't wait for more. I hope this series of commentaries continues past those already funded by the kickstarter.

    And I say this as someone who rarely has time for commentaries. I find some rare commentaries compelling, but almost never play the DVD commentary track because I find they really drag for me. I'd usually rather hear the insights of the contributors in more concise form, such as in the documentaries and interviews.

    But you and Jack managed to fill every minute with genuinely compelling and insightful discussion. I can't wait for part two.
