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.

    As excellent as this is, I hope it’s not the last word on Pax Americana for now – will I have to wait until we circle back to Morrison?

      It’ll come up again in terms of Multiversity when we get there, I expect, although that’s so far off I’m not even really thinking about it.

    I do love meaty parts of the war like this…where one turns into and onto another.

    I’m kind of surprised you’re talking about Pax Americana this early on and not at, say, one of the Ozymandias back matter parts. Still, looking forward to chapter 3 and onwards.

      I only have two Ozymandias backmatter parts, which means the competition for what will make it into them is somewhat intense. In one case, it’s something that just can’t be dealt with at anything short of several thousand consecutive words and probably should go in Book Two and not Book Three (though I could justify either), and in the other it’s something that would be very hard to fit in anywhere else, and that really has to go in Book Two.

    “He inverted the infinite possibility, so that instead of symmetry endlessly fracturing outwards it is an ornately interior structure, the chaos ensconced as a fractal cut-up of recurring iconography. He replaced the teetering eight-panel grid with (etc)”

    Lovely.

    Looks like a beautiful book art-wise for me. Some great sentences in here and massively agree with Kit on the one above.

    Love also reading about the lines really being drawn on the land to mark out territories in the War

    There’s an obvious tie-in to Gillen’s UBER, where superhumans are nearly-explicitly replacements for nuclear weapons.
