Before the Rhetoric

One of the ads last night reminded me...

There's a movie coming out this summer, V for Vendetta, that (if done right) could stir up the hornet's nest. It's based on a graphic novel from Alan Moore and is a near-futuristic story about a terrorist/revolutionary who begins fighting back against an increasingly fascist government.

I doubt such themes are going to bring too many people warm fuzzy feelings...but before the rhetoric gets too heavy, I encourage you to sit down with the novel. Alan Moore's work (along with Gaiman's Sandman and Spiegelman's Maus) is at the pinnacle of the form.
