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.

    ****Pedantry warning****

    Strictly speaking, Sting's character in Quadrophenia is not "Ace Face", he's "the Ace Face". A Face was a particularly stylish, well-regarded Mod; the coolest Face in a given place, group or gathering was the Ace Face. The alpha male, basically, as defined in a subculture where status rested on style. Such, at least, is my understanding.

    Is this the end of the book? Cause there's no [Continued].

    I never knew Moore created Constantine!

    Consider me schooled.

    I didn't know Hellblazer had been cancelled. So sad.

    Of course, I haven't read it in years (nor much of any other comics). But it was a formative comic in my life.

    Speaking of Constantine, will you be covering "Twilight of the Superheroes" in this at some point?

    If you're a Hellblazer fan (especially Delano-Hellblazer), you'd do well to start reading Moore's Swamp Thing around now — Constantine comes to be almost the co-star of the book for a while, soon.

    Yeah, cancelled in the latest DC continuity reboot. Which is actually sort of an appropriate ending, given what Constantine's story touches on in Swamp Thing.

    While unpublished works are not always guaranteed coverage, for obvious reasons, something like Twilight of the Superheroes where a by-Moore document has leaked to the public is, like "Fossil Angels," Big Numbers #3, and the outline for Big Numbers #4-12, something you can basically guarantee is going to get covered.

    Second correction accepted. First one, given that the Bissette quote calls him Ace Face, as opposed to the Ace Face, I am inclined to treat this like Batman/the Batman where either form is acceptable, and will thus err on the side of simplicity for a bit concept like this.

    (Although I was sorely tempted to include an image of Luci from WicDiv with a matching caption to the Quadrophenia/Brimstone and Treacle screenshots alleging she was played by Sting.)

    What do you think of the HUUUUGE Blake shout-out in the title of U2's latest album, Phil?

    It's the best Blake reference since Neil Penswick's The Pit.

    It is very importent site for easy writing paper. Imaginary analysis papers are written to help students learn more about the actual electronic books many people examine. Research papers are made to push the actual scholar to see some sort of new really and to write my paper down with regards to many level or debate in their picking. Tkanks.

    "Figure 455: Swamp Thing's jaw rots off.'

    The "plup" sound along with the artwork always gets me, I really can hear the actual event. Other brilliant uses of sound include the phrasings used when Swampy later forms his body.

    Ah, John Constantine, my gateway drug into the Swamp Thing world and basically one of my favourite comic book character creations.
