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 UK. 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 colouring here in the graphic novel sometimes blurs David Lloyd's fine drawing. But these are small concerns. Skilfully 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. The graphic novel contains all the V series plus two additional stories concerning V that were originally considered "interludes". This edition also contains an essay from Moore dating from 1983 explaining the creation process. For any comic fan it's a must-have. --Mark Thwaite -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

Total Film: Feb 2006: "Page-turningly paced- Moore and Lloyd suck you into V's warped world and you gawp as London burns..." -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

It is perhaps simplistic to declare that "V for Vendetta" is Alan Moore's version of George Orwell's "1984." Orwell came up with his "prophetic" title by reversing the last two digits of the year in which he wrote his book. Moore began his story in 1982, picturing a future that was around the corner and setting his tale in then late 1990s in a Britain that had become a fascist state. Moore worked from the assumption that in 1983 the Conservatives would lose the elections and that the Labour Party would remove American missiles from the British Isles, which meant that England would no longer be a target during a nuclear war. In the post-holocaust Britain of the 1990s, Moore posited a Fascist takeover. The title character of V is a one time victim of a concentration camp medical experiment who is now an enigmatic hero wearing a grinning Guy Fawkes mask; Fawkes was one of the conspirators in the Gunpowder Plot that was an attempt to assassinate King James I of England. In the opening chapter V sets his sights on The Voice of Fate, the official voice of the government's propagandistic lies. From that small but significant initial victory, the battle continues.
There is something decidedly "English" about "V for Vendetta," and not simply because of the setting. Moore can talk about Harlan Ellison's "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman" and "Fahrenheit 451" being among the elements he drew upon to create his own brave new world, but it is clear that he owes more to Orwell and Huxley, to Robin Hood and "The Prisoner," than American manifestations of the same impulse to freedom. V is not a superhero, even if the medical experiments have somehow made him more than human.

Alan Moore und David Lloyd haben mit „V for Vendetta" ein Meisterwerk der graphic novel abgeliefert. Besser hätte auch ein Roman dieses Thema nicht aufarbeiten können. Somit ist es umso bedauerlicher, dass dieser Geschichte allein aufgrund ihres Mediums nicht das Maß an Anerkennung zuteil wird, das sie meiner Meinung nach verdient hätte. Abschließend sei noch eine Empfehlung auszusprechen: Wer nicht davor zurückscheut, sollte „V for Vendetta" im Original lesen, da viele Zitate und Anspielungen im Englischen einfach nicht adäquat übersetzt werden können.

Format: Taschenbuch
One of the most chilling phrases of the last hundred years is, "It couldn't happen here." Which essentially makes the terrifying future portrayed by V For Vendetta all the more possible.
V For Vendetta is set in Britain a decade after a limited nuclear conflict, which thanks to the Labour party removing American missiles from British soil ensures that Britain is not targetted. However the climatic conditions caused by the war end up plunging England into famine and chaos. One party promises an end to anarchy and a return to order, 'Norsefire'.
They are supported by desperate citizens. After they gain power they round up all the blacks, all the asians and gays, all the beatniks and radicals... and kill them. For their belief is in a unified uniformity. Orders are given and followed, no deviations, with a little (very little) bread and circuses thrown in for measure. The horrible absence of any faces other than white faces and the eradication of all culture seen as unfit really shocked me. Moore has always been concerned about Britain's tabloid press and its undercurrant of racism and 'moral values'. It is a concern I share. At a time when hatred for asylum seekers is being whipped up to new extremes by the far right press this is a timely warning.
In this nightmare Britain about four years after the 'final soloution' a terrorist begins to wreak havoc in London. He wears a Guy Fawkes mask and calls himself 'V'. He is after blood. Who is he, or more importantly, what is he? V begins a struggle for the heart and mind of England, a heart and mind that have become complacent and corrupted under the horrible 'better the devil you know' complacency that we are sadly famous for.

Format: Taschenbuch
Naturally the inclination is to disbelieve in the power of the comic-book format to tell a socially relevant and emotionally powerful story, and most of the genre is cluttered with nihilistic power fantasies these days. But this is a brilliant exception, and that can be attributed to Alan Moore's powers as a writer.
You can read the rest of the reviews and find a lot of spoiling detail about the narrative, but the best aspect lies in an attention to the small and overlooked people whose feelings Alan Moore makes very much a part of the entirety. In what I think is the best moment of all, one of the characters imprisoned by the secret police of the English totalitarian state reads and envisions the final thoughts of a dead lesbian, written on toilet paper for some future prisoner to draw hope from. I felt an almost tearful admiration for the sort of bravery and faith in oneself that this prisoner discovers, and a more conscious recognition that Alan Moore is one of the best ever to write for the medium.
It's indisputably good, but it thumps the pulpit of the author's choosing - all government steals self-determination and liberty from its subjects, civilization and barbarism are close neighbors, the masses remain wilfully ignorant of the big picture to focus on television fantasies. It's a deliberately simple portrait of a dystopia, and its questions demand thought from their readers. You might love this as much as I do, but rest assured it won't be because of simplicity or polite avoidance of libertarian doctrine.
