Notes: This is the first hardcover issue of Moore and Lloyd's influential graphic novel, issued only 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 themes of political repression and anarchism helped to redefine the graphic novel as a political statement. This is only edition of V for Vendetta in hardcover format until the 2005 movie tie-in edition.
Edition + Condition: First hardcover edition. The book is slightly musty; the jacket has spotting to the back (verso) of the jacket, which is not visible from the front. The jacket has very little wear.
Publication: New York: DC Comics, 1990.
Item No: #4155
