The lasting cultural impact of V for Vendetta is discussed by its co-creator David Lloyd. DAVID DESIGNED THE V MASK and the look of the V character after rejecting the first incarnation which was meant to resemble a French Gendarme policeman. Along with writer Alan Moore and David as the artist for the book they created a modern cultural and design Icon back in the 1980s for the British magazine WARRIOR.

In the video David highlights V for Vendetta's encroachment into popular culture and the media . He likens it to the Che Guevara photograph. A photo, that became t-shirt graphic art ,which has now become a sort of short hand for "counter culture" of all kinds. That is what has happened to the V Mask. The Mask is now being worn at Halloween joining the ranks of other traditional Halloween characters. And at bonfire night ( 5th November ). As well as Being worn by political protesters of all kinds of many DIFFERENT movements which are seen on TV screens around the world.


THE BOOK VS FILM DEBATE:

The Vendetta Book has also become a Film. Starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving and directed by the Wachowski brothers who made the Matrix starring Keanu reeves. The Film adaptation vs Book debate has been sharply dividing fans, and David Lloyd gives his personal opinion where he stands on this in the video.

ACQUIRING V FOR VENDETTA:

V for Vendetta (absolute edition) . the DEFINITIVE COLLECTED EDITION .with the never seen MISSING PAGES David Lloyd discusses in the video being put back in, can be bought here:

The ORIGINAL WARRIOR MAGAZINE from the 1980s with the original black and white V stories published in Britain which were then bought by American DC comics,collected together, and Coloured (a change too far for some fans) are RARE and very hard to get the complete set. A complete set would cost you lots of $$$$. One or two are floating around on Ebay. But not a complete set. Perversely this fact makes them even more desirable to collectors.

Warrior magazine was created and run, and edited by DEZ SKINN (sometimes called the "British Stan Lee"). An incredibly influential man, who nurtured the careers of many Writing and Artistic greats from the UK inlcuding David Lloyd and Alan Moore:

BUY THE ORIGINAL V FOR VENDETTA ART? YOU BETTER HAVE A BIG WALLET.....


David Lloyd has sold pages of the ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF V FOR VENDETTA, most of which have gone on display in Europe on national exhibitions before being sold. These will cost cost you Thousands and Thousands of $$$$ per page !!! And the price is only going up, as the global cultural relevance sinks in, a full 30 years after they were made.These are the originals, not print's. It's like J K Rowling selling the original handwritten manuscript of her Harry Potter Books. A page at a time.

APATHY IN THE WORLD?


At the end of the video interview David shares his thoughts on the current state of political APATHY in the world even though there are some very serious global problems coming up compared to the previous generations. considering this interview was done in late 2008 and it was about his art and career, DAVID LLOYD PREDICTS WITH INCREDIBLE ACCURACY, EXACTLY HOW THIS APATHY WOULD END.
