*DC: Originally serialised in the UK’s Warrior comic, DC took up the reins of V For Vendetta and published the full story (Warrior folded before the story was completed) in 1988/89. Subsequently filmed, Alan Moore’s dystopian politcal thriller is a story of facist state vs anarchism, portraying in metaphor the Thatcher government and Guy Fawkes as the antagonists. The imagery (by David Lloyd) of V’s Guy Fawkes mask has subsequently been made even more famous by the Occupy movement. Alan Moore’s harrowing storytelling at its best, combined with the moody art of Lloyd and atmospheric colouring by our old friend Steve Whitaker (among others). Most issues of this classic 10 issues series newly listed in NM grade.
