V for Vendetta is a Comic

    3 August 2005, evening time

Dave lent my V for Vendetta, a graphic novel that will soon be turned in to a major motion picture. Alan Moore has had some bad luck with adaptations of his books, and has disavowed himself from all further adaptations of his work, but this new film looks like it will be quite good. The comic is amazing. The story is set in a totalitarian British state. V is the protagonist, a man dressed up like Guy Fawkes, who is attempting to bring down the government. I would say the comic is an excellent introduction to fascism. This is definitely a graphic novel worth reading, probably considered a classic by people who read more comics than myself.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
