(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #230 - Classics of subversion: Alan Moore and David Lloyd "V for Vendetta" (fr) [machine translation]

In England, where fascism has become more social chaos caused by a third world war, it is certain that were not resigned to the authoritarian system. V for Vendetta is a story of revenge, but not only. It is also an ode to the strength and freedom. After eliminating his former torturers, V, a survivor of a concentration camp, has the ambition to destroy the centers of power in order to make room for the people to revolt and rebuild any other company. --- V is clearly a figure of antiheroes: sometimes crazy, sometimes sadistic, wearing a mask frozen smile when killing enemies (reference to Guy Fawkes who was on the verge of making the Palace of Westminster in 1605 explode). He opposed in all respects to the heroes of traditional comics: he does not defend the nation and the authority but anarchy, freedom, justice and equality.

The narrative is interspersed with dialogue between V and Evey, kid bursting slab he collected while she was about to be killed by cops. V explains what anarchy and removing the stigma attached to the term " Anarchy means "without a master" not "without order" , "" Anarchy has two faces: creator and destroyer. The destructive shade empires, prepares the carpet ruins where the creator can build a better world . "

Far from being a real political work, V for Vendetta has the merit to speak of revolution and anarchism through a gripping storyline and stunning designs. Alan Moore and David Lloyd thought this story during the Thatcher years, imagining the evolution of England to a fascist regime. The personification of a political ideal through the hero can sometimes be disturbing but the speech it defines anarchy as the building society by the people and not leaders or leaders. As a result, the hero launched a sacrificial cause and disappears to make room for the collective construction. It appears marked by the reading of this fresco science fiction. Alan Moore and David Lloyd will not compromise either in the script or drawing, the story is dark, violent, sometimes creepy, like the society they seek to portray. The authors have chosen to use only the dialogue and drawing, which purifies the books of any element of contextualization and narration.

The "moral" of the story is that freedom and equality can not be confiscated forever people: " The noise is proportional to the silence that preceded it. More calm was absolute, plus thunder shock. Our teachers have not heard the voice of the people for generations . "
