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.

    And, you get my “I’m not on Twitter” votes here, even if they don’t count:

    V/ Halo Jones: V. No contest.

    Phonogram/ Miracleman: (flips coin) Phonogram.

    Sandman/ Animal Man: Animal Man, but it’s a fight where either one winning makes me happy. I do like that this fight is getting recreated here, I vividly remember some discussion back in the day saying that it was good Sandman had a 1989 cover date so we didn’t have to argue over which was the best new book of the year.

    All-Star Superman/ Swamp Thing: All-Star Superman. I’ve been saying all along Swamp Thing was seeded too high; here’s where I start thinking it’s not even close.

    Watchmen/ Transmetropolitan: Transmetropolitan.

    WicDiv/ From Hell: WicDiv. Only one week until it’s back, woot!

    American Gods/ Neverwhere: As much as it would amuse me to see two TV shows fighting for the division, I have to go with the book here.

    Voice of the Fire/ The Doctor’s Wife: I should probably not vote here, as I still haven’t read Voice of the Fire. But, particularly since my vote doesn’t actually count, I’ll go with The Doctor’s Wife.

    Eric, looks like it’s you and me against Twitter. Okay here’s my results.

    V/ Halo Jones: I want it to be Halo Jones but in fairness it has to be V

    Phonogram/ Miracleman: I like Gillan but Miracleman for its game-changing legacy is the better work.

    Sandman/ Animal Man: Tough. A somewhat overrated and overlong piece of purple prose from the dream weaver versus the Scottish one’s first tentative toe-dip in hubristic meta narrative. I’ll give it to Animal Man for its vegetarian credentials.

    All-Star Superman/ Swamp Thing: I’ve never got into Swamp Thing ( I know!) so it’s A.S.S. by default.

    Watchmen/ Transmetropolitan: A seriously unbalanced match. Watchmen.

    WicDiv/ From Hell: From Hell. See my comments on Phonogram/Miracleman above.

    American Gods/ Neverwhere: Neverwhere is a reasonably good book spoiled for me by various terrible adaptations in other media so – American Gods.

    Voice of the Fire/ The Doctor’s Wife: I haven’t finished Voice of the Fire. It’s flawed but not as bad as Nightmare in Silver I’ll go with The Doctor’s Wife.

      Nope; last issue was a week or two ago, though.

        My mistake. Forgot that my LCS got a lot in late this week and last.
