Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s powerful epic about loss of freedom and individuality gets the Absolute treatment for the first time in this new, oversized slipcase edition! Taking place in a totalitarian England following a devastating war that changed the face of the planet, V For Vendetta was the inspiration for the hit 2005 movie starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving.
This amazing graphic novel spotlights a mysterious man in a white porcelain mask and his young protégé as they fight political oppressors through terrorism and seemingly absurd acts. It’s a gripping tale of the blurred lines between ideological good and evil and details a world where political and personal freedoms are non-existent.
This new edition features the improved production values and colouring from the 2005 hardcover in larger format for optimum enjoyment of the stunning art and story that the Portland Mercury called, “Perhaps Moore’s most powerful work.”
Along with Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns V is often held to be one of the ‘holy trinity’ of modern, graphic novels which re-invented the medium for a mature, adult audience. Written as a response to the right wing politics of the 1980s it remains extremely powerful - Moore’s story of a political anarchist, Codename V, illustrated by David Lloyd as a cloaked man in a Guy Fawkes mask attacking a totalitarian, fascist British state may be set in the 80s, but it speaks of oppression and the fight for personal and societal freedom in any era and culture.
