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 liked the Rabum Alal reveal mainly because Doom vs The Beyonder is one of – no, the only iconic moment in the original Secret Wars series, and also because it reduces the number of moving parts in the story at a point when, with six issues or so to go, the story needs to be doing that (same goes for the Strange/Black Priests thing, though I liked that one less). But then on the other hand knowing Secret Wars is coming is a curse too – it means the twist I presume is behind the reveal, that Alal is working to save bits of the multiverse not destroy it, has less impact (because we already know someone has to be creating Battleworld). I think it's a good twist, though – Hickman has been extremely fair about repeatedly pointing out how unreliable Black Swan's information is, and I get the feeling fandom has been entirely failing to take that hint and continued to take "Rabum Alal caused the inversions and is the baddie" at 100% face value.

    Is it the best Star Wars comic in recent memory?

    Well, no. But I suppose that also opens up a big question about what Star Wars is.

    "Star Wars #3

    … this is a book I'm only reading because Kieron Gillen is writing its counterpart."

    I wacky-parsed that as Karen Gillan at first, so for a few seconds I was like, I didn't know she wrote much of anything and I'm amazed they're not playing up the Star Wars meets Doctor Who angle more.

    "…what I'm pretty much willing to call the best comic book currently being written by an American." Which is proof that you're not reading Sex Criminals. 🙂

    The shock final page reveal is the appearance of the character on the cover.

    is it Daleks or Cybermen?
