V for Vendetta

Surprisingly good, and surprisingly close to the graphic novel. There are a few significant changes, but I don’t see nearly enough reason for Alan Moore to take his name off. This still feels very much like his baby. I don’t think it’s nearly as naive, muddled, or pretentious as some people seem to think.

    My other source on this was a thumbs down. I look forward to seeing it for myself.

    What did this mysterious source not like? In a way, I thought this was better than the comic book–or maybe it took me a second go around to digest the story properly, hard to say. With every thing of his I read, my appreciation for Alan Moore deepens–although “Watchmen” is probably still my fave.

    Actually, I take that back. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Promethea are every bit as good. I haven’t read From Hell. Tom Strong is great fun, Top Ten is amazing–V might actually be the one I was least impressed with. The piece in the Sunday Times about him was very interesting, too. The guy’s pretty far out there.
