Elizabeth Sandifer

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.

    Should that not be "largely sank without a trace" rather than "sunk"?
    (If you remove the bit about Morrison, the sentence would read "One largely sunk without trace" which sounds wrong – to me, at least!)

    Looking forward to this chapter immensely.

    "Looking forward to this chapter immensely" EXACTLY the sentence I clicked through to comment!

    Will you be covering Before Watchmen, the Absolute recolour, or the Zack Snyder movie? Or are you trying to forget that stuff happened like the rest of us?

    Sooo looking forwards to this! I even dug some of my old comic collection out of my parent's attic partly so I could retrieve my copy of Watchmen.

    Quick question- this isn't a badgering "you should be writing this" sort of post, but I'm curious what happened to the Super Nintendo Project. I was really enjoying it, but it stopped abruptly. Was there an announcement somewhere?

    Maybe you only announced it to your backers, which is fair enough. I don't use patreon simply because I really hate the idea of a month to month payment. But if there's any way I can just drop you $20 all in one go and set an alarm for six months or so, please point me to it?

    It's in the Patreon slot, which means it will resume after Brief Treatise on the Rules of Thrones season 2 ends (meaning, presumably, from Monday 3 August). It will then rotate out again after the new Doctor Who season starts (5 September), when episode reviews will take over, unless people put enough money in the meter to keep them both going at the same time.

    What Aylwin said. It'll be back with Lemmings on August 3rd.

    These things are part of how I'm getting twelve chapters out of the book.

    Also the motion comic, and Warner Bros decision to get one actor, Tom Stechschulte to do all the voices, both male & female which comes across as quite cheap for a multinational media conglomerate's dealings with one of their most prestigeous properties (although it does include a new piece of Gibbons art, of the Minute Men IIRC)

    I would not bet on that one.

    You had me at "lemmings".

    As an aside, can I vote for a future Who story that involves our hero crushing pointless advertising fakes? We could call it "The Spambots of Doom". And of course, Phil, I realise you can't do much to stop them.

    …and yet we are to bet on Snyder? Quite the sucker-punch to completeness, you've got there.

    Snyder's film is interesting in its flaws.
