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.

    Hi El, I believe some of Morrison’s outdated pronouns slipped through the editing on this one?

    A rare and unusual accomplishment: Morrison killed Hamed Ali so thoroughly that in 30+ years, nobody has tried to revive him. So I guess he was removed from the continuum.

      I think he’s only appeared once since in the Grayson story for that Robin Special from last year.

    Anyway: I would bookend the Apartheid issue with “The Nukeface Papers”. British author of American comic takes an unequivocal stance on a hot political topic and makes it central to the plot! So in that sense, Morrison is still in his Moore manque phase.

    There’s a tonal difference, though. “The Nukeface Papers” offers no hope. It’s not about fighting or solving the problem. Nukeface exists, he’s a monster (albeit a confused and well-meaning one), and he’s going to keep on spreading horror and death. Freedom Beast, otoh, offers… well, imaginary hope? There’s not actually a superhero who’s going to beat tyrants. But this looks forward to “Supergods” and superhero-as-hopeful-ideal.
