Graphic Novel GAW
« on: January 11, 2019, 10:40:24 AM »
I find myself with two copies of V For Vendetta, the dark distopian story of totalitarian Britain. It's a beautifully written and drawn book that sits alongside the greats of the genre (Watchmen, Dark Knight Returns, Sandman, Hellblazer etc). If you'd like my spare copy add your name to the list and I'll pick a winner on Feb 1st.

I'll start as an example (hope I don't win it - that would be embarrasing  :D)

000 - Mags

'Use the force Harry' - Gandalf

'Derail a thread and we'll come at you like a block of cheese'. Captain Mags and Sergeant Fuzzbucket of the Anti Derai.... mmmmmmm cheese

Nice one, already got a copy, so I'm sitting this one out.
Also pretty fond of the movie adaptation with Hugo Weaving and John Hurt who goes from the guy being watched (1984) to the guy watching. You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain :D

I'm fond of the movie too, despite what Alan Moore says about it  :D I thought they did a good job.

I'll sit this one out as I've had the hard copy,and have it in digital format, but awesome GAW Luke!

Aside from DR and Quinch,I reckon it's the best thing Alan Moore ever wrote,and a brilliant example of what can be achieved with graphic story telling

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

As DR says: A kiss on the wrist maybe quite continental, but tactical thermonuclear weaponry is a boys best friend!

S'Right!

Alan Moore is the Shakespeare of comics. And a Wizard.......... Add your name Pabs - if you win it and read it and don't enjoy it, pass it on.

Oh Pabs! Think Hollywood...

Watchmen
League of Extrodinary Gentlemen
From Hell
V for Vendetta

All big Hollywood movies based on Alan Moore comics

Also,catch up on 2000ad comic...birthplace of so much comic book talent over the last 40 years
