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.

    8 out of 10 as these sorts of books go. You can still do better.

      Absolutely – thanks from me too. I’ll be interested in the next volume for different reasons, because I am much less familiar with Morrison’s work.

    “And yet both casually shrug this off, deciding that while Seymour picks Rorschach’s Journal and the New Frontiersman does expose the scheme, nobody believes it and everything continues as Ozymandias intended.”

    I generally agree with your take on the HBO series, but this is, I think, a little unfair to it and glosses over two of its better notes.

    Rorschach’s diaries were read and believed, but they were read and believed by exactly the sort of people who would find a slush pile piece run in the back of a fascist-adjacent tabloid newspaper to be compelling: in short, Nazis. “The Rorschach Diaries” clearly held the same place in that universe that “The Turner Diaries” ended up holding for the same cohort in ours — a joke made explicit in the FBI briefing in the second episode.

    Likewise it’s made pretty clear later on that whatever influence Adrian had over the Redford administration in the immediate aftermath of the squid has waned substantially by the time the events of the series commence: Ozymandias’ would-be utopia has spun off a few notable reforms early on but its internal contradictions are straining as other actors (Trieu and the Cyclops) work in the space created by them. Meanwhile Adrian is alone at Karnak and nobody will take his calls…

    How did Morrison respond? Did they talk any about whatever work of Morrison’s had impressed Moore enough to pass his name along to Karen Berger? Did they talk about future works?

    I wonder if book two will ever see print like the first one …
