V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta is a ten-issue comic book limited series, later collected as a graphic novel, written by Alan Moore and illustrated mostly by David Lloyd, set in a dystopian future Britain where a mysterious anarchist works to destroy the fascist government and profoundly affects the people he encounters.
V for Vendetta was originally published between 1982 and 1985, in black and white, in Warrior, a British anthology comic. The strip was one of the most popular in the title and featured on several covers during the 26 issues of Warrior.
Moore and Lloyd initially conceived the series as a dark adventure strip influenced by British comic characters of the 1960s, as well as Night Raven, a Marvel UK strip which Lloyd had previously worked on with writer Steve Parkhouse. The name V for Vendetta was editor Dez Skinn's idea, as an homage to the IPC comic strips of the 1960s. Moore credits Lloyd with the idea of dressing V as Guy Fawkes.

V for Vendetta Movies

A film adaptation was released in March 2006, directed by James McTeigue (first assistant director on The Matrix films) from a screenplay by the Wachowski brothers. Natalie Portman stars as Evey and Hugo Weaving as V (replacing James Purefoy) alongside Stephen Rea, John Hurt, Sinead Cusack, Tim Pigott-Smith and Stephen Fry. Originally slated for a 5 November 2005 release in the UK, to coincide with Guy Fawkes Night, it was postponed possibly due to the 7 July 2005 London Bombings, although producers denied this was the reason.
The Swedish production company Stockholms Blodbad staged a live theatrical adaptation of the graphic novel in 2000 under the title Landet där man gör som man vill, which translates as The Land of Do-As-You-Please. This contained pre-recorded video clips of scenes from the graphic novel, such as the bombing of the Houses of Parliament, a scene from the racist sci-fi TV show Storm Saxon, scenes of torture at Larkhill, and Finch's revelation at the camp.
