Is it just the confinement in which we are placed after crime? Or is it something ? Can we become imprisoned without being aware of it? Can we even imprison ourselves? Perhaps even to the state? Alan Moore depicts these uestions in this scary graphic novel that is set in some crazy right winged London that reeks of fascism and corruption It’s a dark eerily real place; it is a place that might have actually been in an alternate history Just like in Watchmen Moore shows us an alternative past that is stark and weirdly possible The people struggle under an oppressive regime; they have no voice; they have no liberty or identity they are in a monumental prison of both body and mind And worse yet because of the mass propaganda campaigns intimidating armed troop patrols and lack of freedom in general the people are not fully aware of their own oppressive plight They’re ignorant and led along by the voice of power and authority They have no free will This is where V comes in In the guise of a shadowy villain the costumed rogue represents pure anarchy His way of thought as he himself admits would lead to nothing but chaos But anything is better than fascism right? Well you’d think so but V is far from the morale crusader he identifies himself as Despite his form of vigilante justice he is not morally good What he inflicts on his protégé is nothing but damn nasty; yes it opened her eyes to the prison of life but in order for them to be opened he had to inflict great cruelty Do the ends ever justify the means? Anarchy is the complete lack of authority over the populace which is what V is striving for but he is acting with the power and ruthless of the very thing he is trying to overcome Indeed what he exacts is a form of manipulative control which is the very thing he is trying to destroy through his wave of terrorism He is certainly a dark and complex character Perhaps his ethos is even slightly self defeating and contradictory I don’t think he’s any better that what he is trying to destroy but perhaps that’s the idea Perhaps Moore is trying to suggest that corruption is the very essence of human nature and that nobody is beyond it I think V is less a man than an ideal He represents something much bigger than himself which is signified by his legacy But what this thing is destructive and extreme; his idea is not necessarily something beneficial to mankind I much preferred Watchmen to this; it was less political and focused on human nature rather than the complex nature of politics I think the right reader could take a lot from this but for me I thought it was too bleak There's little in the way of redemptive themes here 25 stars

V for VendettaDemptive power of the human spirit which rebels against it Crafted with sterling clarity and intelligence V for Vendetta brings an uneualed depth of characterization and verisimilitude to its unflinching account of oppression and resistan I enjoyed the 2005 film V for Vendetta starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving and so my son bought me the book The BOOK turned out to be a graphic novel I asked if this was an illustrated version of the literature and searched to discover that this WAS the book So the graphic novel sat on my bookcase for months and months while I read other books traditionally published But then I learned that Neil Gaiman had published The Sandman series and I recalled fondly my high school days when I read Marvel and DC comics and I have helped to enliven in my youngest son a fondness for the comics as well and he and I have had fun as he discovered this exciting medium And then out of the blue I found the copy of Alan Moore’s well written and well illustrated story of hope growing like a rose amidst the imagination stifling autocratic theocracy that had become England and I found myself liking it very much And so Sam I am I WILL read graphic novels in a box and with a fox
