Voila! Here is a story of a vaudevillian veteran, whom fate casts vicariously as both victim and villain, and whom you can call, V!
Summary of the Book
The graphic novel that inspired the super-hit movie, V for Vendetta, is a commanding story about loss of freedom and individuality. It is set in a futuristic totalitarian England - then a country with no political or personal freedom, and without any little faith in anything. The world is left aghast by nuclear war, and what was not blown up, was either wracked down by floods or crop failures. Out of the all the chaos and anarchy, there rises a man donning a Guy Fawkes mask to challenge the ruling party through his melodramatic acts of vandalism and violence. V, as he calls himself, is a man whose mission is violence, but inspiring, as he tries to bring down the government and make people see logic and sense in governing themselves. V for Vendetta is the ground-breaking graphic novel that defined sophisticated storytelling. Alan Moore's best-selling story is a brilliant depiction of totalitarianism and resistance, superbly illustrated by the renowned artist, David Lloyd. It's an enthralling tale of the hazy lines between ideological good and evil.

The Gunpowder Treason and Plot...Alan Moore is perhaps one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. And 'V For Vendetta' is indeed the celebration, or evidence more so, of that fact.

Remember, remember...V for Vendetta is one of the most memorable graphic novels ever written! It tells the story of a vigilante, known simply as V, who uses his 'terrorist' methods against a repressive fascist government in post-war England.

Great Graphic NovelThe experience of reading the book is several notches better than the movie. The plot is little different in the movie. The beauty of the dialogue was lost in the movie. Yes...the dialogues and the language in the book is far more gripping and exciting. It explores many more themes and ideas than the movie. It has several layers of interpretation which are generally lost in the pace of a movie.

Powerful, Detailed and EPIC!What shines through in this Graphic Novel is the sophistication and power of Alan moore's writing. The characterization is brilliant and the plot is gripping and strong. This is not any average graphic novel, it is a masterpiece...centering around the need for individual liberty and the battle against oppression. It brings forward contrasting views on Fascism and Anarchism. Highly recommended for all. Is sure to leave a lasting impression.

The Genius of Alan MooreTip 1: If you ever see a book on someone's bookshelf by Alan Moore, READ IT. This demigod of irreverence and transgression has danced with the Devil all his career, and has produced works of genius in so doing. From Hell. Watchmen. V for Vendetta. Just to name three of (in my opinion) his major, far-reaching works. V for Vendetta was written as an imagined dystopia. Once you read it, you'l see that its truths abound all around us, in many different ways and degrees. V for Vendetta is a warning. It is a prayer. And it is a glorious celebration of revolution, of humanity.
