Alan Moore, master and
magician of storytelling, tears back the veil of one of the most arcane
of enchantments - the Magic of Television. Part grimoire, part grim
invocation of things that are all too ordinary, this beautiful 48-page
novella is stunningly painted by Felipe Massafera. Maureen Cooper is
not real. She is an apparition summoned to screens, into homes, into
the hearts and mind of the viewing audience by Carol Livesly.
But Carol Livesly is not the god that creates the illusions that
capture the mind and bind the soul. She is only a servant of a higher
power. A higher, hungry power, as old as the world and eternally new.
As, perhaps, are we all... Light of Thy Countenance, an
original story by Alan Moore, has been adapted to graphic novella
format by Antony Johnston preserving every word, and each page has been
painstakingly painted by Felipe Massafera to create this comics
masterpiece. This is also availabe as a limited edition Hardcover (limited to
just 2,000 copies) with a cover by Massafera.
