  2. Vertigo Comics Executive Karen Berger Is Leaving DC Entertainment

    million dollar lady

    Vertigo Comics has been the more serious, adult oriented arm of DC Comics since 1993 and at the very start was Karen Berger. Getting Neil Gaiman's The Sandman published was just one of this editor's countless accomplishments at the company, you can also put Hellblazer and V for Vendetta in that group, so it's with a great deal of disappointment we must report she's leaving the DC Entertainment altogether.

  4. 6 Movie Posters That Think Outside-The-Box

    eye candy

    Movie posters tend to fall in the same, boring design scheme. The stars looking off into the distance or a simple logo with a lame tagline. What we wouldn't give for Hollywood to search the internet and hire some folks who really know how to design with inspiration. Here are a few such examples.

  5. V For Vendetta Creators Are Proud The Guy Fawkes Mask Has Become A Protest Symbol

    Submitted For Your Approval

    Some celebrities wear a Guy Fawkes mask at comic book conventions to walk the floor unnoticed, some people wear it as a costume but the mask made popular by Alan Moore and David Lloyd in their 1980 comic series V for Vendetta has also become a symbol for the masses, something the creators are particularly proud of.

  6. It’s Guy Fawkes Day! So, What Does the Mask Really Stand For?

    Olden Lore

    If there was ever an image from the Occupy Wall Street protests that was the most recognizable by geeks -- of both the comic and history varieties -- it's the Guy Fawkes mask. Today, November 5, marks the annual celebration that originated in England, Guy Fawkes Day, when on this date in 1605, Fawkes and a group of conspirators hatched a plot to blow up the House of Lords and assassinate King James I. Some interpret this as a statement of the regular person -- the 99%, if you will -- taking a violent stand against the ruling establishment. Okay, easy to see the comparisons. Until you find out that Fawkes wanted to return England to Catholic rule by killing the Protestant king.

  8. Washington State University’s Projectors Hacked To Play November 5th Message

    An unknown Washington State University student took control of two-dozen in-class projector units this November 5th, causing them to play a pre-recorded spoof of the televised speech given by the protagonist/antagonist/terrorist/anarchist character V of the movie V for Vendetta, exhorting his fellow students to rise up a year hence against a terrible threat encroaching on their school: Squirrels. (England, I'd like to apologize on behalf of America for the comical extent to which we have misinterpreted your holiday about anti-Catholicism and the defeat of violent fringe elements.)

  9. Allow Us To Explain: Alan Moore’s Anti-DC Interview

    There's been a lot of hubbub this weekend over an interview published on Bleeding Cool, where Adi Tantimedh, a writer of comics and film, interviewed Alan Moore, a writer of a great many different things, over a subject that was bound to get Moore to say some inflammatory things: Watchmen, who has the rights to it, and his current relationship with DC Comics. It should come as no surprise that Moore said some pretty inflammatory things. The post interview commentator debate seems to be between two camps: those who believe that Moore is a paranoid weirdo, and those who believe that Moore is a justifiably paranoid weirdo. Allow us to explain.

  10. The Alan Moore Interview You Have to Read

    Alan Moore no longer pays any heed to superheroes. In an interview with British music newspaper The Stool Pigeon recently, the creator of the watershed comic Watchmen spoke about the works which made him an international superstar in the comics industry. Despite his stature, Moore is a noted recluse and has insisted strongly on distancing himself from the numerous film adaptations of his work (From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Constantine, V for Vendetta, and Watchmen), which have all fallen short of the nuanced originals. The eccentric writer has now also distanced himself, apparently, from the comic book superhero, "[suspecting] that a lot of superheroes now are basically about the unfair fight." We've collected just a few of his particularly interesting quotes, including his thoughts on the Internet, the iconic Guy Fawkes mask showing up at protests, and real-life superheroes:
