Nemo: The Roses Of Berlin (Spoilers)
A Germany that combines Charlie Chaplin's parody of Hitler with the film Metropolis.
Ayesha beheaded! - and by Nemo's daughter. This is like the earlier Nautilus versus Martians in the Thames.
A reference to Ingsoc and to the corresponding Mike Thingmaker regime in the US. The latter is not in 1984 but in a Russian sf trilogy.
I have recently read some Jules Verne but not got into him. However, Alan Moore puts Verne characters and their descendents to good use in LEG history.
