Avada Kedavra

While Moore, the author of the seminal graphic novels Watchmen and V for Vendetta, never uses the words Harry or Potter in Century 2009, he makes his allusions clear by portraying a magical school reached by a magical train hidden between platforms at London’s King’s Cross, according to reviewer Laura Sneddon, who blogs as Comicbookgrrrl and who got her hands on the only review copy. The magical school, however, appears nothing like Hogwarts: “There are flashbacks of psychotic adolescent rage and whimpering children pleading for their life, all strewn with molten corpses”, writes Sneddon in a review for the Independent on Sunday, while the antichrist figure himself is “overgrown and high on anti-psychotics, raging at the education system that let him down and sounding peculiarly like Harry Enfield’s teenage Kevin”. At one point he even kills someone with a lightning bolt from his penis, according to the review.
