This is a graphic novel from Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean A film director from London is dying from cancer He refuses treatment which looks hopeless anyway and keeps working on his last movie sorry we are talking about Great Britain here so it is a film he works on There are actually two plot lines in here the one about the dying guy and the one about the people who exist inside his mind as a part of the film There are some interesting ideas in here and the drawings are always top notch The only reason I gave this 3 stars only is that I have the feeling the subject of a dying artist creating a masterpiece has been done do death sorry about the bad pun Still it is worth reading at least once

Twenty years ago I picked up an earlier edition of Signal to Noise in a comic book shop Before this book I had listlessly followed the trends in superhero comics like many indoor boys before me Robin died Now Superman s dead Valiant Comics are worth than other comics Image is really innovative Signal to Noise changed that This book featured regular people struggling with the death of a loved one and their own mortality about the reasons and nature of having an apocalyptic viewpoint the creative process and absurd circumstances like paying a parking ticket after learning you have cancer Philosophical themes biblical references historical speculation and artists racking their brains to humanely depict all three I had not heard of the author or the illustrator but I liked the cut of their jibThe comic panels are paintings nascent computer graphics and photo collages seamlessly blended into something filmic and Jungian The book opens with a film director answering uestions from an Actor s Studio like audience The audience members ask the director pointed personal uestions while their heads morph into animal and birds In two panels Dave McKean manages to capture the ordinary photorealism of someone asking a uestion followed by the primal undercurrent underpinning a rather vicious social situation In addition to the textual metaphors throughout the book there are brilliant visual metaphors that morph beyond comparing two disparate things into visual meta metaphors Signal to Noise represents so many firsts for me It was my first example of what several years later became popularly called graphic novels This was the first comic graphic novel book I read that explored thought experiments and historical contexts that humanity can only make subjective guesses aboutI did not know at the time that the intertextual noise in between the book s sections was generated by a software version of William Burroughs cut up techniue and also replicated the way David Bowie and Brian Eno sometimes create song lyrics ie feeding words into a computer and selecting stylishly jumbled strings they like I had not yet watched Breaking Bad and seen another thin scruffy bespectacled middle aged loner attempt something grandly artistic with his remaining time on another canvas I hadn t read Sandman and American Gods was a decade into the future I had not yet seen both Gaiman and McKean at play carving out characters who risk everything for an idea for their own survival or while merely going about their errands Gaiman is great at risking his characters Any of them could die Not in the obvious style of Joss Whedon ie the sweet and funny character who everyone adores finally falls in love and mid kiss is brutally stabbed by a demon Gods the middle aged pets wives husbands children Gaiman indiscriminately slaughters them Gaiman what a haphazard tyrant You may love them hate them or feel lukewarm about them You may know them for 300 pages or two every character may die at any moment in a Gaiman story This ingeniously heightens the dramatic tension since everything is at stake for most of the charactersThis edition has some new content a few prefaces a one page comic by Dave McKean that was the genesis of the book and a post scriptum that I don t remember which I suspect was subseuently added On one hand the PS provides a post millennial context unavailable in the 1990s and perhaps allows Gaiman McKean to comment on their younger notions of art creative process death fame etc On the other hand it detracts from the melancholy darkness and the final joke about titles Personally I don t like the PS because while it extends the absurdity of how someone s intentions can be forgotten revived misinterpreted and co opted it had the polish of a PR statement and a formulaic summing up that the original did not have Maybe this is the case of an oldster ranting about how it was better in his day and maybe twenty years hence on my third reading I will have fully integrated the PS forgotten the addition and love it Maybe it was always there and I forgot Who can sayI am happy to have reread Signal to Noise and found that it holds up to my memories of it that it now reminds me of other great artistic works that came before and after it I have been delighted to follow the subseuent career of both men enjoying much of their work and generally enjoying what is now known as graphic novels
