9781401223618: Absolute V for Vendetta

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 coloring from the 2005 hardcover in larger format for optimum enjoyment of the stunning art and story

Includes the original 10 issues plus never before reprinted bridging pages which are newly colored plus intros by Lloyd and Moore to the series plus Moore's extended history of its creation "Behind the Painted Smile" and a newly expanded sketchbook section by David Lloyd.
