So I just got around to reading V for Vendetta. I liked it. Not my favorite Alan Moore work by far, but it certainly is the primordial ooze from which all his other stories crawl.
Now, being the cheeky lad that he is, Alan says in the closing essay in the version I read that he "Isn't going to tell us who V really was", but it does imply that the character, irregardless to who he/she becomes or symbolizes, is an actual person who's identity can be gleaned by the clever.
