V for Vendetta
It’s time for episode 97, in which we discuss a film and comic that were seriously foundational for us--Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s V for Vendetta! Does the film hold up over a decade after its release? Does the comic hold up over 30 years after its release? How do we feel about it now that we’re (hopefully) older and wiser?
If you want to get right to the V for Vendetta conversation, skip to 00:22:00.
Warning: We went ahead and cussed in this one. Not a little bit, a lot.
