About the Author: Alan Moore

Alan Moore is an English writer most famous for his influential work in comics, including the acclaimed graphic novels Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From Hell. He has also written a novel, Voice of the Fire, and performs "workings" (one-off performance art/spoken word pieces) with The Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels, some of which have been released on CD.

As a comics writer, Moore is notable for being one of the first writers to apply literary and formalist sensibilities to the mainstream of the medium. As well as including challenging subject matter and adult themes, he brings a wide range of influences to his work, from the literary–authors such as William S. Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, Robert Anton Wilson and Iain Sinclair; New Wave science fiction writers such as Michael Moorcock; horror writers such as Clive Barker; to the cinematic–filmmakers such as Nicolas Roeg. Influences within comics include Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kirby and Bryan Talbot.

Distopia futurista na linha do 1984, de George Orwell, V de Vingança imagina uma Inglaterra sob domínio de uma ditadura fascista, com campos de concentração, e câmaras de televisão que vigiam todos os movimentos das pessoas. Hoje em dia com a actual omnipresença de câmaras de vigilância e a forma como as comunicações electrónicas são monitorizadas, mostram que, neste caso, a realidade ultrapassou a própria ficção.
