Notes: This is the first hardcover issue of Moore and Lloyd's influential graphic novel, published by the Book of the Month Club (the commercially published version was a paperback). This is one of the most significant graphic novels of the 1980s, written beginning in 1981 as a response to Thatcherism in the United Kingdom. Its inspiration, Guy Fawkes, allowed Moore to explore themes of political repression and anarchism, unusual topics for comics and graphic novels at the time. This is the only edition of V for Vendetta in hardcover format until the 2005 movie tie-in edition.
Edition + Condition: First hardcover edition (stated "First Printing" on the copyright page with a paper label identifying the printer as Ronalds Printing; the name of the printer of the paperback edition is blacked out, as issued). A fine hardcover copy in a very near fine dust jacket with a tiny chip missing from the rear flap fold. Very scarce.
Publication: New York: DC Comics, 1990.
