Set in an imagined future England that has given itself over
to fascism, this groundbreaking story captures both the suffocating
nature of life in an authoritarian police state and the redemptive
power of the human spirit which rebels against it. Crafted
with sterling clarity and intelligence, V For Vendetta
brings an unequalled depth of characterisation and verisimilitude
to its unflinching account of oppression and resistance...
For Vendetta is
one of Alan Moore's best loved creations
and will be given the Hollywood treatment next year (2006).
Originally published in 1990, it is a frightening and powerful
story about the loss of freedom and individuality in a totalitarian
England. Written against a background of third term Thatcherism
and tabloid rants against minorities, this is a work of startling
it draws obvious parallels with George Orwell's classic 1984
(some would even say that it rips off most of Orwell's ideas)
it represents a terrifying portrait of totalitarianism and
who is the strange masked man known as V? And what do those
in charge of England really know about him? Join Moore on
his journey as he unravels the past.
reissue is a must own collection for all comic fans. Savour
every page - this is a story not to be rushed.
