Cementing Alan Moore’s reputation as comics’ foremost writer, V for Vendetta, illustrated by David Lloyd, now returns in a gorgeous, oversized Absolute edition with new material. Originally published in 1990, the story is both frightening and powerful, dealing with loss of freedom and individuality within 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. With new material including never-before-reprinted silent art pages, an expanded sketchbook, the original series back cover art, and the re-colouring of the 2005 deluxe hardback edition – this is the ultimate edition of a modern comic masterpiece.

Foremost comics illustrator David Lloyd has a bibliography that spans from V for Vendetta to Slaìne and Hellblazer and bringing to visual life the work of Alan Moore, Jamie Delano, Garth Ennis and Grant Morrison. His own crime-noir thriller, Kickback, was published by Dark Horse in 2006.
