Originally published in 1990 V for Vendetta is a frightening and powerful story about the loss of freedom in a totalitarian England. Written against a background of third term Thatcherism and tabloid rants against minorites this is a work of startling clarity and intelligence. Everything that comics weren't supposed to be. Returning to print after a long absence fans of Alan Moore, old and new can now enjoy this remarkable piece of storytelling - a true classic of comic literature.

 Far, far better than the movie, great book

I bought this after seeing the Wachowski brothers mediocre movie, and it was amazing! The graphics conjure up a bleak forbidding future of neo fascism. The characters are all well rounded and believable, both villains and heroes. Great story, poweful and original, puts the movie and its classic americanised liberalism to shame with its message of anarchy and terror. Couldn't put it down, and its easily as brilliant as Watchmen (which I loved). Buy

 interesting exciting cool

I agree with other reviewers Alan moore is a genius and this is one hell of a comic theres stuff in here that they missed out for the film.This comic is the better version though i would also reccomend the film.

Like Estein 10 I saw the film first. Friends of mine insisted I read the graphic novel. Wow! If ever a film scratched the surface. Hard edged, thought provoking and full of great metaphors - this story of the V legend is far more in depth and intricate and thus far more rewarding for the reader than the one the film presented (despite Hugo Weavings brilliant portrayal). The web woven by V is a work of art and the questions it raises about personal freedom and our own self realisation (a thread I am picking up from Moores Watchmen at the moment)are to be commended. The support notes about the creation of V were a great addition- I now appreciate David Lloyds massive contribution even more- it was he who stumbled upon the Guy Fawkes idea-If you liked or even disliked the film you must read this book!!!

 WOW!

Alan Moore is a literary genius, there is no doubt about it. This book is an incredibly powerfull look at what happens if a government is given too much power and the inevitable backlash that must occour. If you've seen the film, you needn't worry as that was so addapted that it is practically a seperate entity. This book is easily up there with the Watchmen (another Moore classic, I highly recommend) and is a great buy.
