Description

  • Vertigo
  • V for Vendetta is, like its author's later Watchmen, a landmark in comic-book writing. Alan Moore has led the field in
    intelligent, politically astute (if slightly paranoid), complex adult comic-book writing since the early 1980s. He began
    V back in 1981 and it constituted one of his first attempts (along with the criminally neglected but equally superb
    Miracleman) at writing an ongoing series. It is 1998 (which was the future back then!) and a Fascist government has
    taken over the U.K. The only blot on its particular landscape is a lone terrorist who is systematically killing all the
    government personnel associated with a now destroyed secret concentration camp. Codename V is out for vengeance ... and
    an awful lot more. V feels slightly dated like all past premonitions do. The original series was black and white and
    that added to the grittiness of the feel while the coloring here in the graphic novel sometimes blurs David Lloyd's fine
    drawing. But these are small concerns. Skillfully plotted, V is an essential read for all those who love comics and the
    freedom, as a medium, they allow a writer as skilled as Moore. --Mark Thwaite
