Absolute V For Vendetta

DAVID LLOYD will be signing the Absolute edition of the classic V for Vendetta at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 24th September 6 – 7pm.

V for Vendetta, by Alan Moore and 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 fresh material including never-before-reprinted, newly-coloured full-page illustrations, an expanded sketchbook, the original series back cover art, and the re-mastered colour 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 Sla├Čne and Hellblazer and bringing to visual life the work of Alan Moore, Jamie Delano, Garth Ennis and Grant Morrison. His own crime-noir thriller - the critically-acclaimed Kickback - has been published by Dark Horse.
