Description

"V for Vendetta" - the inspiration for the controversial movie smash hit - is one of the accomplishments that cemented Alan Moore's reputation as comics' foremost writer, and now returns in a stunning new edition.Originally published in 1990, "V for Vendetta" is a frightening and powerful story about the loss of freedom and individuality set in a totalitarian England. Written against a background of third-term Thatcherism and tabloid rants against minorities, this is a work of startling clarity...everything that comics weren't supposed to be.It is a terrifying portrait of resistance and the power of the individual. Superbly illustrated by artist David Lloyd (Kickback), this edition includes early sketches and art by Lloyd.show more
