REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER

Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy: a world of the not-too-distant future, in which freedom was not lost, but surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime that rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses.

This is the setting for the parable of Evey, a young woman who is saved from death by a masked man calling himself only V. Beguiling and dangerous, V ignites the fuse of revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to wake up and shed the blanket of tyranny and oppression in which they have permitted themselves to be cloaked.

While those in power take steps to neutralize the threat, the police pursue the mystery of V, unaware of the terrible truth that awaits them at the end of the trail. It is Evey, however, who, with V as her enigmatic guide, sets out on the most painful path of all: a journey of deception and self-discovery, deconstruction and re-creation, vindication and vengeance.

Synopsis:

A new trade paperback edition of the graphic novel that inspired the hit movie!

A powerful story about loss of freedom and individuality, V FOR VENDETTA takes place in a totalitarian England following a devastating war that changed the face of the planet.

In a world without political freedom, personal freedom and precious little faith in anything comes a mysterious man in a white porcelain mask who fights political oppressors through terrorism and seemingly absurd acts. It's a gripping tale of the blurred lines between ideological good and evil.

This new trade paperbackedition features the improved production values and coloring from the 2005 hardcover.

remember, remember the fifth of November...why not remember every day that has been going by, every day they feed us lies and we believe them, it's time to seize the day "carpe diem" and act on our own...save yourselves from eternal damnation, don't be slaves

Excellent stuff. At times it feels almost a little self-consciously groundbreaking/weird, but not in a bad way.

Everyone should read this! It is timely for our current situation in the United States, like 1984 and Animal Farm. Just open your eyes to the reality of the current situation and you will see what I mean. Alan Moore could not have told the story better. But is it fiction.... or a non-fictitious analogy? You be the judge.
