China MiƩville on Dial H

Omnivoracious features a short essay from novelist and Diah H writer China MiƩville, wherein he discusses his history with the DC Comics property Dial H For Hero:


“For a long time, Dial H for Hero and its successors have been my comics obsessions. No other title, I’ve long explained to any of my poor friends who’ll listen, combines childlike joy in superhero-creation, a neo-surrealist faith in the aleatory, a post-Vertigo focus on the erosion of identity, and an opening into one of the few utter mysteries left in the history of the DCU.”
