'When I wrote "V," politics were taking a serious turn for the worse over here. We'd had Margaret Thatcher in for two or three years, we'd had anti-Thatcher riots, we'd got the National Front and the right wing making serious advances. "V for Vendetta" was specifically about things like fascism and anarchy. Those words, "fascism" and "anarchy," occur nowhere in the film. It's been turned into a Bush-era parable by people too timid to set a political satire in their own country [...] It's a thwarted and frustrated and perhaps largely impotent American liberal fantasy of someone with American liberal values [standing up] against a state run by neo-conservatives — which is not what "V for Vendetta" was about. It was about fascism, it was about anarchy, it was about [England] [...] So perhaps it would have been better for everybody if [the Wachowskis] had done something set in America, and instead of a hero who dresses up as Guy Fawkes, they could have had him dressed as Paul Revere.'
--Alan Moore, MTV.com interview, 2006

Both of these things seem to apply -- in the first instance, clear and linear worldbuilding that spins out new projects. In the other, a rich and complex story that creates a broad fabric of a story universe. -- Warren Ellis
