5.0 von 5 Sternen Alan Moore's most provocative graphic novel
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...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Story 5 Sterne - Druck und Papier 0 Sterne
Der Comic und die Story sind klassiker - Alan Moore enttäuscht definitiv nicht. Das Künstlerische sowie das Storytelling bekommen 5 Sterne.

Was hingegen sehr enttäuscht ist der Print dieser Ausgabe: absolut billiges Löschpapier (wie bei den alten Lustigen Taschenbüchern von Disney), nicht wie es sonst üblich ist ein versiegeltes...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta (Taschenbuch)
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. Sometimes we forget that a lot of our heritage, both culturally as well as politically, comes from England, and on one level this work reminds us of our English roots.
It is ironic that Moore tells his story as a graphic novel because traditionally your comic book superhero is essentially a fascist vigilante. However, Moore succeeds in finding the perfect context to turn the traditional approach on its head. Most people have no conception of what is meant by the term "Fascism." They equate the idea with Hitler, although it was coined by Mussolini, and Hitler means Nazis, Anti-Semitism and Concentration Camps. Of course, Moore knows better. Fascism is based on the "struggle" for "order" wherein the ends justify all sorts of means. This dynamic clearly runs counter to the democratic ideals of "liberty" and "property." Historically, then, we are confronted with the monumental irony that although the Fascists lost World War II, the Cold War was on one level the triumph of Fascism, a period where we allowed all sorts of travesties, from the McCarthy witch hunts to Nixon's executive orders in the name of "national security." Moore brings the idea of fascism home. If you cannot recognize it in England's green and pleasant fields then you are never going to recognize it when it walks down Main Street in your hometown, U.S.A. Don't you think you should?
David Lloyd is the artist for the "V for Vendetta" series, although Tony Weare did the art for "Vincent" and some additional art on "Valerie" and "The Vacation." Notice the pattern? All of the chapter headings in each issue begin or at least include the letter "V." Lloyd's peculiar style is particularly well suited to this particular storyline. It is odd and a bit off, just like the world it is depicting. Lloyd, Siobhan Dodds and Steve Whitaker did the coloring, and I give them special mention because there is a carefully constructed style that also fits the mood and tenor of the tale.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wunderbare graphic novel mit Hintergrund, 28. März 2006
Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta (Taschenbuch)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It could happen ANYWHERE., 24. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta (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. It is however ordinary people who will decide this conflict, he has just to show us the way.
This is one of the most chilling and enthralling books I have ever read. One of the biggest points of the book is that most people don't want to be evil, but they will go along with it if it leads to a quiet life. This view is hammered home relentlessly. It also incredibly manages to be a ripping yarn at the same time. The look and style of a future Britian under a totalitarian dictatorship is wonderfully rendered by David Lloyd who draws everything in a wonderful gritty, harsh, sleezy style. This is arguably Moore's greatest work, it is certainly his most vicious and pointed. An important thing to take into account though is that Moore was primarily directing this at English audiences, the comic only got an American distribution later. As such there may be several cultural characteristics that may cause to the unfamiliar reader several vicious points to fall short. No matter, this book was intended to show Britian how it could happen here, and by implication how it could happen anywhere. Do not be complacent. England prevails!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pushes boundaries of storytelling in comic books, 18. Juni 2000
Von 
John M. Thompson (Albuquerque, New Mexico) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta (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.

Interest in this graphic novel should increase as the release of James McTeigue's film version becomes imminent. Certainly they are getting some nice free publicity from Natalie Portman showing up with her head shaved at the "Revenge of the Sith" premier because she is play Evey Hammond. Hugo Weaving is playing V, Stephen Fry is Gordon Deitrich, Rupert Graves is Dominic, John Hurt plays Bishop Lilliman and Stephen Rea has the part of Lewis Pothero. Given what happened in London last week, this will be an interesting time for this movie to come out.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Genial, 30. Dezember 2007
Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta (Taschenbuch)
Bisher habe ich noch keinen Comic(bzw. graphic novel) gelesen und ich bezweifle, das es einen vergleichbaren gibt, der so literarisch, so gut, so weise ist wie v for vendetta. die geschichte ist so realistisch, die graphisch umsetztung so GENIAL wie in keinem anderen werk diese genres. das beste stück comic-geschichte, das es gibt. Haben sie je in einem comic eine aussage wie: "unfreiwillige ordunug erzeut unzufriedenheit, die mutter der unordnung, ahnherrin der guillotine. Autoritäre gesellschaften sind wie formationstänze. kompliziert, mechanisch genau und vor allem instabil. unter der dünnen kruste der Zivilisation schäumt das kalte Chaos...und an manchen stellen ist das eis trügerisch dünn" gelesen? so philosophisch ist nur Alan Moores und David lloyds V.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta New (New Edition TPB) (Taschenbuch)
"V for Vendetta" auf Englisch zu lesen ist die logische Schlussfolgerung, ich habe es nicht bereut und hatte keine Verständnisprobleme. Nur im Original werden die Dialekte der Charaktere korrekt wiedergegeben und nur im Original sind die Dia- und Monologe so kraftvoll.

Ich bin kein Fan von Mangas und dieses neumodischen Pseudo-Mangastils a la Kim Possible. "V for Vendetta" ist in seiner Farbgebung düster und in der Darstellung realistisch und zurückhaltend.

Beim Lesen des Comics fielen mir die Paralleln zu unserer gegenwärtigen gesellschaftlichen Lage auf. Wir treiben auf einen - weniger totalitären - aber dennoch beängstigenden Überwachungsstaat zu, der die Rechte seiner Bürger beschneidet und der herrschenden, wohlhabenden Klasse eine ungerechte Macht an die Hand gibt.

"V for Vendetta" füttert die revolutionären Tendenzen in jungen Menschen und wird wahrscheinlich gleich nach Orwell verboten, sobald erst einmal neue Termine für Bücherverbrennungen angesetzt sind ;-)

Der Comic ist ziemlich anspruchsvoll' für einen Comic. Man sollte schon mal von Goethe und Shakespeare gehört haben, sonst macht das Buch nicht halb soviel Spaß.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Alan Moore Strikes Literary Gold Again with "V for Vendetta", 22. Mai 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta (Taschenbuch)
British writer Alan Moore earned his place in the comic book writers' pantheon with his seminal turn on Swamp Thing in the 80s, part of the triumvirate of Frank Miller, Neil Gaiman, and Moore who transformed lowly comic books into a respectable artistic medium.
And, like Miller and Gaiman before him, Moore found that the only way to carry on once you've thoroughly changed your industry is to do do it again and again in new and novel fashion.
Thus, I give you "V for Vendetta," the absolute furthest thing from "Swamp Thing" and "Watchmen" imaginable.
Moore almost singlehandedly restored the creepy cool of EC horror comics with his run on "Swamp Thing." He redefined the superhero genre with "Watchmen." With "V", Moore abandoned the conventions of both genres and embraced gritty Orwellian scifi.
"V" is set in a Britain which has embraced Fascism following a nuclear conflict which left the nation intact but badly bruised. Mirroring Hitler's ascent over the ashes of the Weimar Republic, the Norsefire party seizes power in Britain and restores order at a horrible price.
That is, until a stylish terrorist in a Guy Fawkes mask codenamed "V" appears on the scene to tear the new order down.
"V for Vendetta" marks a major departure from comic book style. David Lloyd's cinematic style plays like a storyboard for a film; gone are the motion lines and Batman-esque sound effects so familiar to comic readers. Lloyd also dispenses with one of the comic writer's main crutches for exposition---the thought balloon. The story is thus relayed entirely by motion and dialogue, deepening the inherent mystery of the plot as we try to comprehend the master plan of the inscrutable antihero "V".
As with "Watchmen", Moore has layered his tale with enormous depth, making subsequent readings a must to truly comprehend all that's going on within the plot.
If you're interested in seeing what the comic art form is capable of when geared toward an adult audience, rush out and grab a copy of "V for Vendetta" today.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: V for Vendetta New (New Edition TPB) (Taschenbuch)
Zum Inhalt und zur Bedeutung des Comics haben sich schon viel Wissendere geäußert.
Daher nur zum Erscheinungsbild:

Diese englischsprachige Ausgabe ist im Gegensatz zur mir bekannten deutschen Fassung auf billigerem, leichteren Papier gedruckt, greift sich daher nicht so hochwertig an (-ich hatte gleich das Bedürfnis, es einzubinden ggg). Das schlägt sich aber auch im Preis nieder.

Ich empfehle außerdem wärmstens den Roman zum Film von Steve Moore!
