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.

    It's nice to see Alan Moore thought well of Archie Goodwin, although hardly surprising… It's been suggested that Goodwin was the only editor in the history of comics that nobody even disliked, never mind hated. I'm sure he'll come up again at least briefly when you do "Love Doesn't Last Forever", which I believe is the only time Alan Moore worked on a non-charity book for Marvel US.

    Yeah, whenever I think about Archie Goodwin, I'm reminded of the Threatening Three, a villain team from Batman Adventures based on the then DC group editiors. Mike Carlin was Mastermind, a conspiracy theorist who came up with ridiculously convoluted plans to do the simplest things. Dennis O'Neil was the Perfessor, an absent-minded veteran with past experience of just about everything, and "so it goes" attitude to match. And Goodwin was Mr Nice, who was just a really nice guy.

    I don't know how accurate the other two were (although since I was reading the Carlin-edited Superman titles "ridiculously convoluted" has a ring of truth to it), but everything I've heard suggests "Mr Nice" was dead on.

    "Indeed, it’s a reasonable hypothesis that a substantial portion of the larger plot surrounding the Warpsmiths…. "

    Great stuff Phil, especially love the massive parenthesis paragraph exploring the connections between V, the Warpsmiths and Marvelman, etc. I had not idea that there was some kind of shared universe intended between the stories and I've really been enjoying this section of The War.
