Bring me my Bow of burning gold

I found nice pieces of V for Vendetta comics with the verses of William Blake poem written in 1804. These 12 comic books are definitely somewhere in between a pure work of art and a perfect political statement. Unfortunately more than suitable for Russia of today.

V for Vendetta

And did those feet in ancient time.
Walk upon England's mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On England's pleasant pastures seen!


And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?


Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Arrows of desire:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!


I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In England's green and pleasant Land
