James Means, at the Northwestern State University of Louisianain the spring ofand revised in the summer of His opening comments refer to the typical scene from any given science fiction convention, where hoards of usually young fans pack hotel convention rooms to hear their icons the writers, actors, directors, and thinkers behind science fact and fiction speak a few words: We lampoon and ridicule the sniveling little oaf before his peers We imply that even to have voiced such a question places him irretrievably in the same category as the common pencil-sharpener The reason why we do this is pretty straightforward.
Firstly, in the dismal and confused sludge of opinion and half- truth that make up all artistic theory and criticism, it is the only question worth asking. The task has been unbelievably arduous, not because any of the sources were too difficult to find, but because Moore covered so much ground.
I found myself walking from one end of the library to the other, consulting science dictionaries, rose-naming serials, history books, films, and musical compact discs.
I even explored some of my questions on the Internet, sending inquiries about such topics Son of Sam and Aliester Crowley, and receiving answers from around the world! Moore has apparently learned that his questioners want to know about his ideas; at the present Moore is working on a graphic series called "From Hell" which features as its main character Jack the Ripper.
I was unable to locate any issues of this work, but I am told that it is entirely annotated by Moore Coates, personal communication. This is certainly unusual for a "comic book" but Moore is clearly addressing the issues of origin more clearly, perhaps for himself as well as for the reader.
In developing the originalV For Vendetta series, Moore and Lloyd "wanted to do something that would be uniquely British rather than emulate the vast amount of American material on the market," Moore Both were political pessimists, and decided that the in world they wanted to portray "the future would be pretty grim, bleak and totalitarian, thus giving us a convenient antagonist to play our hero off against," Moore The list was something as follows: Phibes and Theatre of Blood.
The writings of the New Worlds school of science fiction. The atmosphere of British Second World War films. Moore cites that the Conservative party would "obviously lose the elections.
In his introduction to the American DC comics edition of the book, Moore addressed his earlier comments in light of actual political history: There is a certain amount of political inexperience upon my part evident in [the] earlier episodes.
To the best of my current knowledge, this is not the case. Naivete can also be detected in my supposition that it would take something as melodramatic as a near-miss nuclear conflict to nudge England towards fascism The simple fact that much of the historical background of the story proceeds from a predicted Conservative defeat in the General Election should tell you how reliable we were in our roles as Cassandras.
A Note on the Style of This Annotation In annotating this work, I have adopted a system that will allow the reader to follow each entry easily. The first number indicates the page on which the original entry may be found.
The second number indicates the row, numbered from top to bottom; most pages have three rows of art, while some have fewer. Finally, the last number indicates the column, numbered from left to right. The prologue to Book Two is "sideways" but the same system applies if the reader turns the book as he or she would normally do to read the words.
In formatting the file for the web, I have replaced the text-only convention of underline-spaces to indicate books, movies, and any case of underlining in a quote, and asterisks to represent bold and italics in quotes, and now use HTML-provided underlines, italics, and boldface text. In a few places, I have edited the original content slightly to provide links in context of the text.
Additionally, some web-based content and any addendum sent in by readers is noted in grey-backgrounded text. This content was not originally included and varies from the text-only versions of this document available elsewhere online.
Attempts to link annotations to relevant pages on the web ongoing.
