No need to spend any words on the book. It's a classic.
But I'm still trying to figure where's the deluxe finish or the collector's level in this pityful set that I've just received. To make it simple, it is not the one in the product pictures. The mask seems to be one of those that kids get for free in birthday parties. It is made of a cheap plastic, full of stickers in the inside. Besides that, you can easily notice how it was poorly handcut, probably with common scissors and by someone that don't have steady hands. It also comes with a hanging tab that, guess what, it wasn't shown in product pictures.
The box is also not the one in the pictures. A cheap cellophane completely loose and unglued at the time it arrived. The box was full of smashed edges. Well, not just the edges, it was all smashed. Even the book could have a better quality paper.
There's anything deluxe in this set, and anything for a collector. It was cheap, indeed, but customers deserve to know what they are buying, no matter what price they are paying. If I knew, I would have bought any other hardcover version of the product.
Right now, I feel deceived and disappointed. Dont buy this, go for any other version.
P.S.: Sorry for any grammar mistakes, my english is a little rusted.
The good, the book is great, but you can buy a comparable edition for a few dollars less on Amazon by itself. I repeat the book is great 5 stars, too good for this set.
The mask is a flimsy thin plastic number complete with hanging tab. Garbage. I will return and buy the deluxe rubies mask, it has to be better than this one. The worst part, the packaging. It is so flimsy my first set was dented, and my replacement set was worse, the cellophane tearing out of the front. The box looks completely different than what is shown here. I will upload images to show what I mean. What a waste of potential.
If you don't care about the quality of the mask or the condition of the box you may like this.
Split into three books, V for Vendetta begins after a nuclear war has ravaged most of Europe. Although England "prevails," she is a mere shadow of her vibrant self, with a despotic regime stifling all dissent and making privacy impossible. Police are given sweeping powers and discretion to keep things under control. It is in this society that we meet 15-year-old Eva, forced into prostitution to survive. Rescued by the terrorist known only as V, she learns about the music and culture destroyed by the new rulers, rescued and preserved in the Shadow Gallery. With rip-roaring action, psychological terror and chills, this story is one for the generations to pass down. There are a few flaws that made portions of the comic a chore to read, most notably the forced accents of some characters. Not only did this pull me out of the book's illusion, but it made the experience considerably less enjoyable.
Book two focuses on the consequences of an iron curtain that attempts to police thoughtcrime, and how even the most secure dictator will never receive true adoration or respect. The conclusion is among the most gripping I have ever encountered in a comic, and is well worth the effort (the mask is fun too).
