Weird Superheroes

Here’s a link to my Alluvium article on identity and consciousness in China Miéville’s superhero comic series Dial H. I love this series, and it never ceases to surprise me with the most wonderful plot-twists, literary cross-references and meta-commentary on the genre of superhero comics. It’s a shame that it was cancelled, and there will be no more issues after #15 (which will be 48 pages long). Let’s hope that the series will return some day (as it’s done before). In the meantime, I’ll run around enthusiastically recommending it to everyone around. Seriously, take a look at it. It will blow your mind.
