3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Church of The Flaming Sword on April 4 2004
Format: Paperback
Written in the early 1980s, V for Vendetta tells of an England in the then near future of 1997-8. A limited nuclear exchange devastates much of the world while England is directly unaffected. However, the enormous economic and political ramifications of the conflict hurl the nation into anarchy. Out of the ashes arises the fascist Norsefire regime. Sure they restore order to the fallen country, but this is clearly a case of the serum being more lethal than the poison. This new government sends blacks, homosexuals, Jews, and other minorities to death camps. The culture of the pre-War world is now deemed as evil and subversive. A corrupt police force is implemented with the authority to murder suspects if they wish instead of adhering to ideals such as due process. The average citizen is forced to work for starvation wages, and sometimes to crime just to survive. Freedom, democracy, and privacy are as archaic concepts as the world being flat. Then comes V, whose motto is the title of my review. Translated from Latin it means: "By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe."
Replete with Guy Falkes regalia, V seeks to bring about an end to the Norsefire party through a series of assassinations, bombings, and kidnappings. At first, they appear to be revenge against everyone who worked at the prison camp where V was held. Instead, the plot turns out to be more complicated and planned out than anyone could possibly imagine. V doesn't strike the Norsefire at their body, he strikes for their heart - and never misses. He has a contingency plan in the form of 16 year-old Evey Hammond, a girl he rescues from corrupt cops when she is forced into prostitution by her intolerably low wages.

I love the movie, I must have seen it 15 times, but had never read the original graphic novel. My first kindle was just a regular kindle and would not support comics. When I got my 10 inch tablet it was perfect for comics. This is a well drawn well thought out story. It differs to a degree from the movie, but the same message is there. Its hard to argue with a 9.99 price as well. Good value for a superior product.

This is one of those must reads in the comic world. While you may love it, or not enjoy it at all, it's something for everyone to try at least once. Another one of Alan Moore's wonderful pieces from back when, if you're looking for something to read, or just want to get the premise of those mask's you see all over the internet, pick it up.

Loved it! You have to read it to understand because it's an index rifle feeling reading a book that is enlightening and terrifying all at once!

I already own a copy of this book, but was looking to purchase another one for art project. Not wanting to cut up my own copy, or pay the full price for a brand new copy, a used copy met my needs perfectly. The book I received had definitely been read several times over, and had worn corners and slight wrinkles but is more than usable for my needs, and is in good enough condition to be a feasible option for anyone just looking for a copy of the book to own and read.
