Anarchist's Assemble

Anarchist's Assemble
or: V For Very, Very, Extraordinary

This weeks grab bag reveals V for Vendetta. Once upon a time, there was an anthology magazine from the UK called Warrior. I picked it up for the work of John Bolton but it was V for Vendetta that kept me coming back. V is a perfect example of lightning in a bottle where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The high contrast, chiaroscuro, noir look was tailor made to appeal to a Ditko fan like myself.

The lovely and talented V

Happy Trails

Simply gorgeous "V" -- and I share your appreciation for John Bolton's work (loved his Marada the She-Wolf work in Epic Illustrated)!

Beautiful. But isn't it actually David Lloyd who you are channeling here?

<p>Absolutely.</p> <p>I&#39;d just never seen David&#39;s work before that point.&nbsp; While it was my familiarity with John that caused me to pick up the book, It was, after reading, David&#39;s work on V that kept me coming back.</p> <p>Not picking sides between John and David but, V was lightning in a bottle.</p> <p>Smitty</p>
