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 really like Alan Moore, but his treatment of Alan Davis regarding this is pretty shabby.

    BTW when is the parenthesis you opened last week’s installment going to close?

      You’re talking about the {, right? I use those to bracket the chapter-ending essays corresponding to the text pieces. This one runs for two more parts, making Chapter Four a six-parter in total. (Chapters 1-3 had all been seven-parters.)

      And yeah, I agree, that’s decidedly not Moore’s finest hour.

    It always bugged me that you could pretty much show as much graphic violence as you liked in (non-Comics Code) comics, but showing birth caused a huge ruckus. What does that say about our society?

    Yeah certainly agree not Moore’s best moment at all. Still love the work produced though, but what a mess all of it!

    Totally with you John above that it is such a huge shame that people can freak over the beautiful act that brings us into the world, but glorify violence, especially violence towards women in the media. As you say, this says a lot about us.
