That bitch at Eruditorum Press
Anonymous asked:

Do you plan on doing print versions of last war in albion for volumes 2/3?

Yes.

Anonymous asked:

I'm interested in reading about the history of British television. Are there any books on the topic you read for Eruditorum you would recommend?

Honestly I mostly picked it up out of About Time and then did follow-up research as appropriate.

Anonymous asked:

Going by your tweets and writing on the topic it seems like queer content in contemporary SF/F is mostly sapphic and/or written by women. Is this just a reflection of your personal interests or are queer men / queer male content just not a big part of what gets talked about right now? (And I don't mean either of those as an indictment, to be clear)

My tastes do run more towards queer women, but in this case it's a larger bias: my reading has been mostly working outwards from the Hugo nominees, which have in fact been extremely sapphic.

Do you plan to touch upon 'Momentism' that has has become so prominent in mainstream cape comics?

Relatively unlikely actually, because the British Invasion were mostly all too smart to fall into that trap, save Millar, who has so many other sins to talk about.

How do you think Alan Moore and Grant Morrison would have reacted to Evan's coup, in the universe of "Britain a Prophecy" ?

I think they would both recognize that Evan is an authoritarian nightmare.

Who are your favorite curent comic's creators (writer, drawer, colorist, letterer or otherwise) ?

Kieron, Penn, Nechama, Penn.

More seriously, artistically I've been grooving on small scale indie stuff in aesthetics I could never write. Gloriously binged Emmett Hobbes's Royale the other day. Literally obsessed with @fend13th and their drawings of ordinary places like Waffle Houses. Miles from stuff I'd ever do, and I hunger for it.

Stupidly fond of Zdarsky's noir stuff. Psyched for him on Batman because it feels like twenty years ago when I was obsessed with Rucka's Batman—a rare trash superhero pleasure that's up my alley. Glad he's got Ram V on Detective to balance it. That's a hell of a lineup on the Batman books there. Desperately need to read Ram V's Swamp Thing, cause I'll love it. Loving Vita Ayala on New Mutants and need to follow them elsewhere. Stephanie Williams's Nubia stuff is groundbreaking and the best Amazons stuff in decades.

Tamara Bonvillan is my favorite colorist at the tier above "people I could plausibly work with short term." Bidikar, Otsmane-Elhaou, and Cowles are all great letterers.

What are the best virgin new adventures to read to get an understanding of that line?

Timewyrm: Revelation, Transit, and Lungbarrow get you the good and the bad, sometimes side by side.

What's your favorite Blake's work ?

Book of Urizen sure is great.

Anonymous asked:

Do you read webcomics ?

A handful, almost all chosen because I was reading them 15 years ago and haven't stopped.

Besides Watchmen and Sandman, do you think there is other LWiA related work that you could use as a framing for a book, with each issue corresponding to a chapter ?

Jerusalem

I've been rereading the early Eruditorum books, and I've noted a couple of errors, including several unrevised, self-misgendering pronouns. Do you want me to compile them in an email?

These are the editions without my deadname on the cover? If so, sure. I have no plans to go fix those books but such a list is always useful to have if I do. Be prepared for me to forget it exists by the time I try to deal with it, but I appreciate it even if I'm an ADHD disaster.

I know you've been following the X-Men comics over the last few years - which series (post-HoxPox) would you say are particularly worth checking out in trades?

I've been reading them more as a line than as individual books with arcs, but Leah Williams's X-Factor largely impressed me. Si Spurrier's stuff has been great. Hickman's stuff was fascinating but ultimately flawed. X of Swords was amazing dumb fun if you want trash superhero. Wolverine has been very good at being Wolverine, if that's your jam.

Anonymous asked:

Have you read some of the books of Alex Garland ? If yes, what do you think of them?

I've not. I probably should, given how much I like his three films, but I've long since hit the point where the things I'd really like to do in life greatly exceed the amount of time I have left in which to do them, so we'll see.

Do you think it's likely that they'll be a movie in the Epic Cold style that takes a leftist perspective or is the style to prestige/high budget to get away with that?

Dunno. Depends what Sam Esmail does next I suppose.

Metropolis, from the look of things.

Men, as it turned out.

Which, there's a lot to say about horror and its influence on Epic Cold, which is similar to romance and its influence on Tor Wave.
