V For Very Nice

This is a review of the quality of the hardcover, not judging factoring my review of the series, which can be found HERE
V For Vendetta:  The masked man who predicted the current state of Britain and what should be done with it.
Pro:  It is one of the Alan Moore crown jewels.  This political thriller was more then just a great story, it predicted at least one thing to happen in London in the future.  The "eyes" of the government are now present in modern day Close-Circuit-Televisions that now are all over on the streets.  These Visionaries view are now presented in an Absolute format.  The bonus features are nice and it looks like the Bridging page that David Lloyd created have finally been restored.   The art on the slip-case is fabulous.
Cons: It is not a cheap book and there is no Black and White (Original Version) presented as a second book. Having two versions for the $100 ticket price would make it more far, but it being one book makes it quite expensive. It would of been nice to have both versions presented, the pastel coloured version we all have grown to know and the original Black and White version the way it was presented in the Warrior Magazine.  I also think that David Llyods art is not really improved in this over-sized book.
Verdict:  4/5  It is a great book, but it doesn't matter the format.  If the trade is prefered stick with that.  But if you enjoyed the story is ia nice to have it in the bigger format.
