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.

    Second, it's obviously in reference to the late 18th Century mystic and poet, William Blake…

    A bit of continuity nitpickery: I think by matching Strange with Thanagar, Moore's playing off a 1978 Showcase storyline which established a tense relationship between the two worlds (and was a loose inspiration for the more recent miniseries Rann-Thanagar War).

    I thought for a moment you were skipping over the second GL story, and then you give it to us as a cliff-hanger! Oooh. You've studied your comics well, sir.

    the planet on which Mogo is known to arrive

    I think you meant a different verb — perhaps "reside"?

    I'm surprised Loving the Alien only got 1 paragraph. It's one of my favourite issues of comics ever.

    Also, it's another important place to look at the Moore's bibliography's elephant in the room: rape.

    In this issue, Swamp Thing is raped. I'm not sure it comes up in any of the (many) discussions I've read regarding rape in Moore's work.

    Along with Rite of Spring and Windfall, Loving the Alien is absolutely one of favourites of Moore's run. An astonishing experiment which for me works – ok I'm coming at it from my perspective as a visual artist, but I really found it very immersive and meditative.

    All Flesh is Grass is wonderful too and features some great artwork from Rick Veitch and Alfredo Alacala who I think work superbly together as they create very living, writhing textures.

    ". For one, it is the story that Moore was referring to in later interviews where he accused DC of “going through my trashcan like raccoons in the dead of night.” "

    Not to mention Mogo is now a semi-regular Green Lantern character.
