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.

    Hi, this is a question out of genuine interest, so I hope it doesn’t come across as rude! As a patron of yours I would not want to cause offence. But I was interested in the criteria you use when deciding which comics to buy. I ask because if I had the same % of comics I buy that I actually enjoy as you seem to have from your reviews I might have quit reading comics by now! I used to read, e.g. Saga and a lot of Marvel like you do, but ended up having similar views on them as you express in your reviews so dropped them and switched to other titles, and now have a pull list where most titles I would review like the top two on your list this week. Guess I’m interested why you stick with titles that you don’t seem to enjoy. Is there an academic purpose to it outside of pure enjoyment? Thanks!

      I will tend to continue buying something as long as I intend to read it all when it’s wrapped up, mainly. Saga is an example of this.

      It’s also a month vs. overall thing. Only Saga and Chew are in any real danger of getting dropped, and Chew is close enough to the end that I’ll soldier on. All-New All-Different Avengers will at least get until the stupid Assault on Pleasant Hill crossover is done, at which point I may drop it and several things with it.

      Everything else I’m at least enjoying on a macro level.

    As far as Spurrier is concerned, I was in the same boat, failing to find anything to warrant his reputation in his work I tried (both licensed and original like, say, Numbercruncher), until I fell in love with the Six-Gun Gorilla miniseries from Boom. It is based on existing property, but only in the most technical of senses. And actually uses this fact to get very meta about stories generally, not the in the most original perhaps, but a very touching way.

    I believe it’d suit your tastes. Doesn’t hurt that it’s hilarous, and Stokely’s art is vibrant and fun throughout.
