i just finished reading alan moore's "v for vendetta" and i was pretty blown away. one thing i came away with however is that after reading two of his works back to back (the bastard read watchmen last month) is that moore tends to obsess on fascist enemies that usually are the state itself. turns out that rob of the mano izquierda tells me that alan moore wrote these two books while thatcher was prime minister of england and the bastard has found that anyone who was liberal while thatcher was PM hates her with a hot heat. i wasn't there, i just remember that she gave argentina a good ass whooping in the 80's and iron maiden named their band after her.
anyway, the bastard got concerned halfway through the book. quite like "hitchhikers guide to the galaxy", it is something that needs to be true to the written work to be good, but, it's complicated to get that on a screen and make it popular. hopefully it will as good as hitchhiker was but, i don't think it will resonate with the red states. oh well, it was still good reading. i just hope to god that they never option the invisibles or transmetropolitan because they will be awful films.
