Unpublished V for Vendetta offered in charity auction

David Lloyd is offering V for Vendetta fans a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a one off, never published page featurng the character originally created for Warrior by him and Alan Moore.

Offered on eBay, this is a silent “last page” from the series, especially drawn for an auction to benefit the family of a fallen Phoenix police officer and Army National Guardsman.

“I wanted to something special for this cause – so I thought I’d do a whole page,” says David. “It’s the only sequential action page to be drawn since I completed the last page of the story itself – and I’ll never do another.” says Lloyd.

Rendered in brush and ink, the silent scene depicts the iconic V giving an untitled book to Evey in the Shadow Gallery. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to see a page David’s physical art, you’ll know his work is absolutely stunning and this piece is sure to be much sought after.

On 3rd October 2009, Staff Sergeant Tom Rabjohn was deployed in Afghanistan as an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team Leader. Tom was killed in action when he shielded two soldiers from the blast of an Improvised Explosive Device.

Tom served the United States of America in the Arizona National Guard and with the Phoenix Police Department. You can learn more of his story below:

100% of the proceeds for the auction – the current bid is $1000 – will go to a college fund established for Tom’s three daughters.

International bidders welcome: the art will be shipped directly from David Lloyd.
