V for Vendetta- A to Z

Do you remember the 5th of November?

V for Vendetta was an amazing comic and also a pretty good movie.   It is set in an Orwellian England.  Ruled buy facist pigs, everything and everyone is corrupt.  Everyone except a man named V.  Once a tortured prisoner, V escapes with the goal of raining down Vengence on the totalitarian regime.

Along the way he picks up sidekick Evey.  He educates her before giving her the final exam of imprisoning and torturing her.  This brings her around to his way of thinking.  I hate to think what would have happened if she would have chosen collaboration over death.

If you are unfamilliar with V, I would suggest watching the movie and then reading the graphic novel in order to garner the most enjoyment from both.  Natalie Portman is in the movie and shaves her head for the role.
