It's no Watchmen. But it's pretty good.

"Roses are red. Violets are blue. Everything's possible. Nothing is true."

One of Alan Moore's earliest works. In an alternate history Earth, England has gone full-bore WWII Nazi fascism. A nutter in a Guy Fawkes mask takes on the oppressive regime single-handedly.

I loved V for Vendetta the first time I read it. My second time through, the cracks started to show. It's heavy-handed and over-earnest in a way that is commonly seen with teenaged writers. Moore is free about conflating order with fascism and disturbingly infatuated with anarchism. That said, it's adventurous, clever, well-paced, grand. The "V" symbolism runs rampant throughout the book and is quite slick at times, though it's occasionally a bit forced.

The pixelly six-color art looks dated, but it's probably not fair to hold that against it; it is a product of its time.
