Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

A powerful story about loss of freedom and individuality, V FOR VENDETTA takes place in a totalitarian England following a devastating war that changed the face of the planet. The inspiration for the hit 2005 movie starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving, this amazing graphic novel is presented for the first time in DC's oversized, slipcased Absolute format.

In a world without political freedom, personal freedom and precious little faith in anything comes a mysterious man in a white porcelain mask who fights political oppressors through terrorism and seemingly absurd acts. It's a gripping tale of the blurred lines between ideological good and evil.

Next to George Orwell's Animal Farm and 1984, V For Vendetta stands alone as one of the greatest and most significant pieces of political fiction, ever conceived. Everyone should read this book for how important its message is. Take a look at the Wall Street protesters. They have adopted the mask of the character ,V, as a symbol of their protest, or rather, an identity of those who suffer in this shallow economic struggle. Read this book. It will not be regretted.

This book is one of the great turning points in modern literature. The loss of freedom, tyrannical government and a world at its end all play a dark backdrop to an anarchist's revolution for the freedom of oppression. This book warns of a future that could be, if we let it.
