V For Vendetta - the Absolute edition!

Today the definitive edition of V For Vendetta was released by DC / Vertigo in their over-sized Absolute edition. Alan Moore is my favorite writer as anyone who's read this blog for any length of time knows, and V For Vendetta is my favorite book and I'm happy to report that the Absolute edition of V For Vendetta exceeded my expectations and I'd put this Absolute edition at the very top of DC's Absolute editions (New Frontier is also has a great Absolute edition)

Besides the new cover images (this top image is the exterior cover of the slipcase for Absolute V For Vendetta and the image to the left is the image on the dust jacket), this hefty volume (almost 400 pages) also has new images before every chapter. Seriously, there's not just a few pages, there's a lot of new pages (well the art isn't entirely new, but the way it's used to enhance the story is incredible) and needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. I've always wished that there was a black and white version of V For Vendetta, but here in this larger format, even my minor "problems" with the color aren't evident. I'd say definitely put Absolute V For Vendetta on your gift wish list because this is the very top of the line story, with great art and deserves this deluxe presentation.
