(W) Alan Moore (A/CA) David Lloyd
In the near future, England has become a corrupt, totalitarian state, opposed only by V, the mystery man wearing a white porcelain mask who intends to free the masses through seemingly absurd acts of terrorism.
A powerful story about loss of freedom and individuality, V FOR VENDETTA takes place in a subservient England, in the wake of a devastating war that changed the face of the planet. In a world without political freedom, personal freedom and precious little faith in anything comes a mysterious man in a white mask who fights political oppressors through terrorism and other questionable acts. It’s a gripping tale of the blurred lines between ideological good and evil.
This new trade paperback edition of the classic series from writer Alan Moore (WATCHMEN, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN) and artist David Lloyd (HELLBLAZER) collects the epic miniseries and features the improved production values and colouring from the 2005 hardcover.
