Just want the record to reflect that I bought and read the graphic novel V for Vendetta--about a terrorist blowing up buildings in a near-futuristic but Thatcher-like England--a couple of years ago, was impressed and creeped out by it, and have been dreading the movie adaptation since the Alan Moore adaptations to date have been bad. James Wolcott gives the Wachowskis' V for V a solid advance plug.

I sure hope it is good, I first read V for Vendetta in the mid-90s, re-read it after 9/11... awesome.
I just finished re-reading Watchmen, (first read in 89 I think), I got so much more out of it this time, I found Viedt's "fake-terror" plot to kill half of NYC in order to scare everyone into utopia to be really creepy & resonant with current events on many levels.
