Abstract:

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. V for Vendetta first graced the pages of the British comics anthology series, Warrior, in its flagship issue in 1981. The series continued there until 1985 when Warrior ceased publication. Left in limbo for three years, the series was eventually picked up again in 1988 by DC Comics, one of the world's largest comic book companies, where the story was completed. Artist David Lloyd provides the art for the majority of the series, though artist Tony Weare contributed to a few issues. Originally in black and white, DC reprinted the original pages in watercolors, and continued to do so until the series came to fruition. One of Alan Moore's first attempts to pen a continuing series, V for Vendetta helped put Moore's name on the map. Moore wrote the series as a response to Thatcherism, the form of conservative government in power in the England at the time of the story's creation. The title's popularity lead to Moore becoming more prominent across the pond, which opened the doors for other British comic writers to find new popularity in North America, such as the likes of Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman, among others, all titans of the industry in their own right. Today, the book enjoys a great deal of popularity and critical praise, especially in the wake of the 2006 film adaptation starring Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman, which has earned over $132 million. It has also gone on to have a deeper significance, with protesters donning the Guy Fawkes mask popularized by the title character, especially in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
