V for Vendetta Book 2 Question

As this is my first graphic novel to read, I have had some difficulties in following the plot, the character development, and sequencing of events (especially in book 1). By book two, I now feel like I have a much better grasp on how to read a these novels. And I am enjoying them quite a bit.

I have gotten caught up on a lot of phrases in the book and found a web site that explaines a lot of them. It is: http://theory.lcs.mit.edu/~wald/v-for-vendetta-index.html After taking a look at this website I have a better idea of what is happening in the story. One annotation that caught my attention was on the Kitty-Kat Keller.
It says on the website: The Kitty-Kat Keller The name of the night club is possible a
reference to the similar burlesque club, the Kit Kat Klub, from the film _Caberet_, which is
set at the dawn of Hitler's rise to power in pre-World War II Germany. Both stand out as
having the initials KKK, which carries an inevitable association with the infamous white-
supremist organization, the Ku Klux Klan.
What other associations in the novel relate to the Ku Klux Klan? What significance does it have in the story plot?

We learn a lot about V throught the character of Evey. How does her characteristics help tell the story? How does her relationship with V help tell the story?

Media plays a large role in the development of the story. Through radio and television the people hear and see what they need to hear and see according to the people in charge. In book one this this through the voice of Fate. What are the similarities and the differences of the use of media in the novel and in our world today?
