Tchaikovskys 1812 overture

Cover to V For Vendetta. Art by David Lloyd.
The film's story was adapted from an Alan Moore comic originally published between 1982 and 1985 in the British comic anthology Warrior. These comics were later compiled into a graphic novel and published again in the United States under DC's Vertigo imprint and in the United Kingdom under Titan Books. (+wiki)

Viola! In view a humble vaudevillian veteran,

cast vicariously as both victim and villain

by the vicissitudes of fate.

This visage, no mere veneer of vanity,

is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.

However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone

vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to

vanquish these venal and virulent vermin

vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious

and voracious violation of volition.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta,

held as a votive, not in vain, for the value

and veracity of such shall one day

vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers

most verbose, so let me simply add that

it's my very good honor to meet you

and you may call me V.
