We’d do a “your mom” strapline, but honestly with Christine here it’s a bit weird

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.

    The sudden realization that Alan Moore was in any way connected to "B.J. and the Bear" is astounding to me. You might as well have dropped in a paragraph alluding to his brief career as a male stripper or an astronaut, either of which would have been as jarring.

    That said, I do have to credit the otherwise ridiculous "B.J. and the Bear" for teaching me at the age of 9 what sexism was. I did watch the show when it was on because, well, there were only three channels and the other two counter-programmed with "grown-up shows." I don't remember a single episode with any clarity but I vividly remember one in which Audrey Landers had been captured by bad guys and B.J. was on the way to rescue her. The bad guys had ordered her to strip and, so help me god, the camera showed an extreme close-up of her ample bosom so that it completely filled the screen. She was wearing a very tight sort of half sweater thing held closed by three buttons, and I'm pretty sure no bra.

    1. Close up of Audrey Landers bosom as she undoes first button.
    2. Cut to B.J. racing to the bad guys' hideout.
    3. Close up of A.L.'s bosom as she undoes second button.
    4. Cut to B.J. still racing to bad guys' hideout.
    5. Close up of A.L.'s bosom as she reaches slowly for final button. Dramatic music swells.
    6. B.J. kicks in the door and beats up all the bad guys, thereby preserving the sanctity of A.L.'s bosom.

    And at the age of 9, some part of me said "Wait-a-second! That whole scene was morally and ethically wrong for reasons I can't articulate because I'm 9 and don't know what the Patriarchy is!"

    Pram of Shit presumably is a reference to Cradle of Filth – which I'd always assumed was just a made up band for the IT Crowd (Noel Fieldings goth character Richmond was a fan) but apparently it was/is a real band.

    "It also, more than any other Bojeffries Saga story, gives Steve Parkhouse the extended opportunity to draw architecture, given that it is set in the street, such that a row of terraced houses is the backdrop for nearly every panel.”

    I love drawing architecture, and I adore strips such as this where buildings and a sense of place are as strong a set of characters as the people within the stories.

    That's not a bear on the right, it's a chimpanzee. A common mistake.
