I come from a school of wanting my art to look a certain way. Growing up following the likes of Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri and others, I shouldn't like this. But a strange thing happened while reading V For Vendetta. I absolutely love David Lloyds art. The guy knows how to draw a picture that pulls you in. It's never going to get the accolades that today's artist get from fans, but that should absolutely have no bearing on picking this book up.

But lets be clear about one thing, you are picking this up for one reason and one reason only: Alan Moore. This book is one of his all time best and should be required reading for everyone. The story of Vendetta takes place in a dystopian future (well at the time it was written it was in the future) where Britain's society is under the rule of a totalitarian government. Enter the man known only as V, who is on a revenge mission against those that wronged him in his past, while also giving the people of England...hope, to rise up against the government.

V also has one of the coolest looking costumes accentuated with a Guy Fawkes mask. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just look at the book cover. Cool **** indeed.

I highly recommend getting this book. Just don't get the Trade Paperback as it's printed on cheap paper that doesn't do the art or the colors any justice. Go with the Hardcover Edition. There are a lot of reprints out there so make sure you're getting a copy of the highest quality before laying down you cash.
