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.

    Ah yes. The one form of typo there's no recovery from: when you've just outright read a name wrong for years.

    As I understand it, the peculiar dynamics of the Beano and Dandy strips were the result of the pecular dynamics behind the scenes. The writers and artists were gleeful in their portrayal of troublemaking kids as instruments of (often righteous, if you squinted) chaos. The people in charge at DC Thomson, however, were stern Dundonian presbyterians (you just have to read the Sunday Post to see how conservative DC Thomson can be) who insisted that moral order must be reimposed by the Powers That Be by the end of the story. (An exception was Minnie the Minx, possibly because even stern Dundonian presbyterians weren't comfortable with showing a girl being hit by her father.)

    I suddenly find myself wondering what part Viz comic is going to play in the War.

    the simultaneous cross-Atlantic births of "Dennis the Menace" is an amazing bit of coincidence, as if aided by some god of mischief.
