“More gripping than the original story.”
— Alan Moore
“The pacing is so well-understood by Johnston that I really do think it becomes a much richer and more involving experience to absorb the piece in this format.”
Trash Film Guru
In 1995, Alan Moore wrote a disturbing and hypnotic piece concerning television for the anthology FORBIDDEN ACTS.
It was a freestyle beat poem, a polemic essay and historical treatise all in one, condemning both the bland, commercial and hypocritical disgrace that has usurped the medium's potential, and the sheep who accept such dross without criticism.
The LIGHT OF THY COUNTENANCE graphic novel brings this piece to life in comic form, adapted to sequential narrative by Antony and beautifully painted in full colour by Felipe Massafera.
