I still need to read that tbh. I saw the movie and it was meh so I think that's put me off buying the V for Vendetta comic just cause I know the plot.

I generally ask if someone has read Miracleman/Marvelman as it's amazing and I want to spread the word but I now know the modern, easily accessible copies of the comic to be recolored travesties like trying to watch Star Wars Special Edition.

You should definitely read V for Vendetta. The movie kind of ****ed up the ending but it's well worth reading. Of course; what am I saying? It's Alan Moore.

Also these 2000 AD titles:
Ro-Busters (two robots help clean up disasters. They're called Ro-Jaws and Hammerstein!)
DR and Quinch
Rogue Trooper (didn't like it myself but I'd say you would: future soldier has the personalities of his dead mates put on chips in his weapon, helmet, backpack etc)
The Ballad of Halo Jones

Oh, and of course you know Lost Girls....

Can any movie do that type of graphic novel justice? Ya, read the novel. Movie gets the general vibe (like Watchmen) but.... well, you know.

Some parts of the movie are scary good though. The flashbacks to the hospital where V was made were very especially well done imo.

My friend has a Re:Zero fitted cap and didn't even know what Re:Zero was until I started making fun of him for the hat and then had to explain why I was making fun of him.

Watching all of the talking heads salivating over the live testimony tomorrow.

The 4 official RNC talking points are pretty freaking weak.
