Exhibit for Alan Moore's 'Vendetta'


The Cartoon Museum in London has an exhibit of Alan Moore's  V for Vendetta: Behind the Mask. The exhibit will be available until Oct. 31; £8.50; £5 concessions; £3 students. 

"Presenting 36 original comic artworks alongside storyboards and costume designs from the hit Warner Bros movie, V for Vendetta: Behind the Mask charts the rise from comic to graphic novel, Hollywood film to iconic symbol of protest," the museum says. 

"Featuring exclusive never-before exhibited works, including an original prototype mask from the film, this new show also explores the voices of protesters in the real world and asks you to explore your own beliefs about big ideas, from protest and rebellion to freedom and justice.

"Exhibition organised by The Cartoon Museum in collaboration with David Lloyd. Presented with permission from DC Comics and supported by funding from Arts Council England."

V is for Vendetta won the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award in 2006; an appreciation is available, written by Michael Grossberg.
