Has anyone else here read it, and if so, do you have any idea who that literally black guy with the huge head is?

The Golliwog as a balloonist is a reference to Florence Upton’s The Golliwog’s Air-Ship (1902), in which the Golliwog and the wooden dolls Sarah Jane, Peg, Meg, and Midget go on a balloon trip together. If the design of the balloon is a reference to anything in particular, I’m unaware of it, although the shark face on the front is a very Kevin O’Neill-like touch.

Police ain't supposed to have "black dossiers" anymore, they call that "racial profiling".

Does anyone else think that Alan Moore eventually is going to spiral out of control like Frank Miller? Although his madness will, in that case, take a slightly different form...

First League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series: References to a number of more or less well-known figures from victorian adventure/thriller novels. A little bit of sex when they first encounter Griffin.
Second League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series: References not just to more well-known characters, but also to some way more obscure pulp stuff (in the beginning at Mars for example). At the back of each issue there's the "travellar's almanac" that starts to freak out reference-wise. And more sex, both the parts with Mina and Alan getting it on with each other, and one of the most grotesque murders in comics.
The Black Dossier: Combining references to HP Lovecroft, Michael Moorcock, James Bond and a children's book about talking dolls. Loads of sex, including an extra comic book within the big book of Big Brother era porn, we get to know that the talking dolls are having orgies, the new adventures of Fanny Hill, etc.

Now, I challenge you to imagine what a fourth League book would look like...

alan moore went overly sex crazy when his two lady lovers left him and he spent that bottled up energy on "lost girls". that's right moore's an "orgy guy"

volume lll comes out in april- part one anyway. League of Extraordinary Gentlmen volume 3 :Century 1910 is the first part, 72 pages. crowley's the bad guy and it will supposedly covery the opera house fiasco < Fantomas, he comes!!!!!!!> plenty of Carnacki and AJ Raffles to round out the league, plus new Nemo!

part 2 is in the sixties- and they only have an outline on part 3 so it can be adjusted to the current world situation, is Obama the Moonchild? they did say that there's no league in part 3, and part 2 kind of a downer.

I love you Alan Moore

Okay... so the gollywog really IS Alan Moore himself then... as Kahljorn said.
Well, we'll see then if the current trends continue...
