Alan Moore and his unfinished Gen 13 story

Leah Moore Tells Us All How Comics Broke Alan Moore

I have been an admirer of the work of Alan Moore, before I knew who he was, that he was the one who wrote my favourite Captain Britain and 2000AD stories. When I picked up Warrior Magazine and was reading it for V For Vendetta and Marvelman, they mentioned his name and what else he wrote, […]

The Great British Bake-Off has clearly had an impact, in that stories like this exist. But a Birmingham-based cake decorating competition has entered the foray of international politics for the 5th of November.

Why DC's Infinite Crisis and Superboy Prime are Very Relevant Right Now

Much has been made of some of the current titles being released at the moment, and how they mirror or relate to our current world and political climate. Many comics seem to have metaphors for Donald Trump, or stand in Trump characters, or look at the whole politics of the situation, such as Nick Spencer's […]

Remembered, Remembered, The Fifth Of Novembered

Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder treason, should ever be forgot. The Million Mask March happens today across the world. Protests by Anonymous and other groups against increased security, globalisation, capitalism, taxation, basically, whatever you've got. And Warner Bros gets a royalty from each mask […]

Swipe File: V For Vendetta And British Unity

This is Nick Griffin. He used to be a leader of the BNP, the British National Front, a fascist political party. I am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that six million Jews were gassed and cremated and turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also once held that the world is flat That's the fellow. […]

Remember Remember Everything Wrong With V For Vendetta

The folks from Cinema Sins are back and just in time for Guy Fawkes Day the have done: Everything Wrong With V For Vendetta. It's interesting taking a look back at the Wachowski's adaptation after over a decade. This was well received by fans at the time, but the true test is how well a […]

Google Play Deems Comics Fit For Consumption (UPDATE)

By Tony Wolf While watching the new AMC show Halt & Catch Fire On Demand on Monday night (I was too traumatized by Sunday night's Game of Thrones to brave a pilot of an entirely new show that same evening), I was struck by something.  Many of you have by now seen the new Google […]

Anonymous Vs Martha Gill Over V For Vendetta

Back then, they were just a promotional item… Two days ago in The Telegraph, Martha Gill wrote; Anonymous have been exposed as hypocrites. Watch them try to wriggle out of it […]

Could Occupy Comics Face The Wrath Of Warner Bros Lawyers?

This is the cover to the Occupy Comics trade paperback, featuring the V For Vendetta version of the Guy Fawkes mask which has been appropriated by Anonymous, Occupy and the Arab Spring movements. It hadn't appeared on the covers of the issues, though used inside. Because while one could be considered comment and fair use, […]

Avengers AI And V For Vendetta? Separated At Birth? (Spoilers)

From today's Avengers A.I. #2 by Sam Humphries and André Lima Araújo… Dimitrios, downloaded into one of the old Iron Man suits, indeed on that had a history of sentience. And who, fully masked, makes a proclamation on TV sets across the land. But did it feel a little familiar? More of a reference than […]

The Sting Of V For Vinegar

You may have seen on the news that around two weeks ago, Brazil was host to widespread protests against government corruption and wasteful spending, prompted by a hike in public transport fares.
