I found this to be a very interesting graphic novel. It's about a writer/director who gets diagnosed with cancer and decides to forgo treatment and finish the film in his head instead. It's about the turn of the first millennium (999 AD) and a village that expects the end of the world. Both the story about him and the story of the villagers are very interesting. Since this is so short, I'd highly recommend that people read it. ( )

I might have liked this more as a printed book--the pdf was supposed to be "high-res" but actually had a lot of compression artifacts that made some of the text difficult to read, especially the pages where the art style already made it hard. But I didn't especially care for the art--perhaps it isn't fair to judge something 20 years old this way, but the noise and jumbled word art seemed dated and cliche, and the story didn't really resonate with me.

Signal to Noise New Edition by Neil Gaiman (2007) ( )

Signal to Noise is a story about a director who is writing a film about the apocalypse, about the end of the world at the turn of the first millenium. This is kind of fitting, since he himself is dying of a terminal disease and so it's a race against time. A race full of self-reflection and introspection, thoughts about life and death and art and human character.

Pretty good all in all, but I do regret that we don't find out a bit more about the film he's writing, as I found scenes from it - mostly about a clan of believers who sell everything and ascend to a mountain-top in wait of impending doom - to be both visually and story-wise among the most interesting things in this graphical novel.

Illustrations and text are beautifully paired in this examination of mortality. In a story that elegantly parallels the end of the world with the end of an individual, we are asked to consider if the patterns we see are real or are imposed by our own fears and desires. And in the end, how much does the answer to that question truly matter?

Signal to Noise is an exquisite example of the best that graphic novels have to offer. It defies those who fail to recognize the power of the form to reach the highest levels of art and literature. ( )
