    Default Did China Mieville Have A Little Dig At Alan Moore?

    From the new Dial H, out this week... looking at previous Dial H incarnations and inhabitants.

    In 2007, DC Comics published League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier, which featured the Golliwog. Which caused quite the fuss.

    Could that have been... a dig from Dial H writer China Mieville? Did his editor, and previous editor of Alan Moore's work, Karen Berger, catch it?

    Good grief, Rich. Try to spin some more controversy out of absolutely nothing, why don't you?

    OR... (as is far far faaaar more likely) is it a dig at RACISM and Alan Moore doesn't (GASP!) factor in at all?

    Yeah, the top page above is so poorly-written that it is hard to tell if they are trying to get in a dig at somebody

    Nod maybe, not sure what the dig would be though.

    I don't see it either. I was fucking astounded to see a golliwog hanging from someone's rear view mirror recently though, I haven't seen one in real life since they were still on marmalade jars.

    No. They're just talking about the same, not really that obscure, subject. It's like claiming they're making a reference to Extras, which also featured a gollywog.

    If it's intended, Jeff Lemire should take notice—this is how you take a clever, subtle pot-shot at someone.
