V for Vendetta Unit

One of the most well-received graphic novels of all time is V for Vendetta; like Watchmen, this graphic novel was made into a film (although not without controversy).

To prepare to teach or for students studying the work, two outstanding resources include The V for Vendetta Shrine and a site including annotations for the graphic novel.

Students can explore adaptations, especially concerning the controversy surrounding the making of the film.

Further, this is a sophisticated work of satire aimed at British politics and society—although it rises above that direct satire to raise issues about all politics, social norms, celebrity, and morality.
