"Jimmy has no handler, just a new partner, Nancy McEwan – probably my favorite character to write, who’s going to become very important to our hero in a way he’s not expecting."

"For some time now I've noticed the liberal left getting caught up in silly games of identity politics and social commentary, games that not enough other people want to play. They seem determined to hang onto the moral high ground no matter what the cost — depressingly familiar ground for the left, I'm sorry to say. I want them to win, but the appallingly pompous, humorless road they're stuck on seems to lead only to defeat."

"Running through the story is a lighthearted (ish) critique of current social and political commentary, wherein some of the ways in which the political left expresses itself comes in for a bit of a bashing. These are people I want to see succeed, but I worry they undermine themselves with the sometimes extremely pompous manner in which they respond to the world.

An obvious example would be the appalling phrase “politically correct”, which was horribly self-righteous to begin with but has now rebounded on its original exponents, who’ve ended up simply handing the bad guys a stick with which to beat them. Its modern equivalent seems to be the even more dreadful “problematic”. If you’re going to express disgust, don’t be polite about it."

Where this actually comes from is the old Swamp Thing epic, "American Gothic", and the notion of examining a character's mind-boggling true nature and origin story. I mentioned this to Alan Moore and he pointed out a couple of things about dogs and welding that I actually found very helpful.
