It’s been a while since I saw the movie and a long time since I read the comic, so this should be interesting to do. :smiley:

Just read the comic, very strong reactions to it, both positive and negative. So, more on that later. Have never seen the movie, this will be a first watch WAL for me.

I’m the opposite. Watched the movie a long time ago, never read the comic!

Cool. I think, I have some issues in a box in the basement. A sold off boxes of comics years ago, but kept just a few, think V is in there.

That’s cool! I wish, that I’d bought a set back in the day. I’ve always kicked myself that I didn’t. I have the Absolute Edition, but I haven’t read it in awhile. I don’t like to read the Absolutes that often, to try and keep them nice. But since this is a special occasion, I might need pull it off the shelf. I’m looking forward to the WAL. I own the movie, but haven’t watched it in years.
