10. V For Vendetta
The setting of Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta — a dystopian United Kingdom under the rule of a corrupt police state — isn’t the most original plot, but the themes and character study behind this series are what make it such a classic publication. The main character V makes you question the theory of an antihero, and whether his actions are honorable or selfish. On one hand, he sets out to encourage the community to take control of their lives, but it’s ultimately at the cost of setting off a war that might be worst than the current nuclear playground. Overall, V for Vendetta provokes thoughts about real-world issues while also offering astounding artwork and one pretty cool Guy Fawkes trademark.
