V For Vendetta

Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s powerful epic about loss of freedom and individuality.

Taking place in a totalitarian England following a devastating war that changed the face of the planet 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 or evil and details a world where political, personal freedoms are non-existent.

Along with Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns, V For Vendetta is often held to be one of the ‘holy trinity’ of modern, graphic novels which re-invented the medium for a mature, adult audience. Written as a response to the right wing politics of the 1980s it remains extremely powerful today. It may be set in the 80s but it speaks of the fight for personal and societal freedom in any era or culture.
