Book Description
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, "Light of Thy Countenance" - an original and breathtaking story by Alan Moore - is adapted to graphic novella format by Antony Johnston, preserving every word, with each page painstakingly 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.

    This is a truly wonderful comic. Felipe Massafera's artwork is just gorgeous, in some places it is truly stunning. Alan's prose is also beautiful almost every line is gorgeous. A book about the evils of television where television is a deity for the 20th century. It's done perfectly. The beauty of the language and the art turn it into modern myth not a preachy lecture. I totally loved this. I need to find more comics drawn by Felipe Massafera, I think I've seen him before and really liked him then too.
