The TradeWaiters 22: “V for Vendetta” by Alan Moore and David Lloyd

Voila! Let us next volunteer V for Vendetta, the volume by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. But are they visionaries viewing behind the veil, or vandals giving voice to violence? Join Jonathon, Jeff, Angela, and kgros as we debate the merits and shortcomings of this dark and gritty and deeply political graphic novel. The discussion ranges from violence against women and anarchy as a lifestyle, to a movie with the same name and an internet movement with the same face. But don’t worry, we still have time to talk about the fan fic possibilities and our favourite spiral staircases.

Also mentioned in this episode:
Watchmen, Swamp Thing, From Hell, Tom Strong, AARGH, and The Mirror of Love, also written by Alan Moore
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
Angel Catbird by Margaret Atwood and Johnny Christmas
Full Metal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa
and Lunar Maladies by kgros.

Music by Sleuth.

Our next episode will cover Cul de Sac: This Exit by Richard Thompson.
