Read full description of the books:
What terrifying force lives in the heart of your television? Hugo Award-winning author Alan Moore (WATCHMEN) introduces us to an entity created at the dawn of television, a man-made deity made more powerful every night we worship before the altar of the boob tube.
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. 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 is an original and breathtaking story by Alan Moore, adapted to graphic novella format by Antony Johnston, preserving every word.

Read information about the authorAlan Moore is an English writer most famous for his influential work in comics, including the acclaimed graphic novels Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From Hell. He has also written a novel, Voice of the Fire, and performs "workings" (one-off performance art/spoken word pieces) with The Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels, some of which have been released on CD.
As a comics writer, Moore is notable for being one of the first writers to apply literary and formalist sensibilities to the mainstream of the medium. As well as including challenging subject matter and adult themes, he brings a wide range of influences to his work, from the literary–authors such as William S. Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, Robert Anton Wilson and Iain Sinclair; New Wave science fiction writers such as Michael Moorcock; horror writers such as Clive Barker; to the cinematic–filmmakers such as Nicolas Roeg. Influences within comics include Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kirby and Bryan Talbot.
