Created nearly 30 years ago V for Vendetta occupies a prominent place in comic art history and represents one of the highest achievements of the comics medium. The artist David Lloyd, who created V for Vendetta with writer Alan Moore, introduces a screening of the film of the same name and talks about its transfer onto the big screen (directed by Joel Silver and featuring Natalie Portman, John Hurt and Stephen Rea). This will be followed by a special sketching and signing session for the audience.
Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore and David Lloyd, V for Vendetta takes place in an alternate vision of Britain in which a corrupt and abusive totalitarian government has risen to complete power. During a threatening run in with the secret police, an unassuming young woman named Evey is rescued by a vigilante named V – a caped figure both articulate and skilled in combat. V embodies the principles of rebellion from an authoritarian state, donning a mask of vilified would-be terrorist of British history Guy Fawkes and leading a revolution sparked by assassination and destruction. Evey becomes his unlikely ally, newly aware of the cruelty of her own society and her role in it.
