The authoress, examining the film (Quadrophenia) by Franc Roddam and the comic (The Originals) by Dave Gibbons, tries to explore the question of subcultural identity. Although the action of the film is set in London of the 60s, and the story told by Gibbons in the dark future ('The Originals' is sometimes called a retro-futuristic story), both refer to the subculture of mods. Mods, as modern dandies, concentrated on exceptional image that would lift them in the hierarchy of social order, were the rebels using the style as the form of Refusal. Both film and the comic book mirrors specific style typical for this group - it is visible not only in the looks of the characters, but also in the aesthetics of the film and the book. Trying to descript the new vision of subculture as a whole, the auyhoress uses the ideas of Dick Hebdige and also the opposing concepts developed by David Muggleton
