Signal to Noise

Overview

Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean present their masterpiece, Signal to Noise! Somewhere in London, a film director is dying of cancer. His life's crowning achievement, his greatest film, would have told the story of a European village as the last hour of 999 AD approached — the midnight that the villagers were convinced would bring with it Armageddon. Now that story will never be told. But he's still working it out in his head, making a film that no one will ever see. No one but us.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
12/09/2013
Originally serialized in The Face in the early ‘90s and wearing its age handsomely, Gaiman and McKean’s collaboration feels ahead of its time while also resembling something from another era—less like a comic, more like storyboards for a heady teleplay. Gaiman’s story follows a filmmaker facing his own mortality, in the form of a tumor that heralds a quick end. Previously preparing to make a movie about the turn-of-the-millennium dread in the year 999 C.E., the director is now working to create it in his own mind before expiring (he believes that his mental version would be purer than anything he could bring to the screen). Gaiman’s typically multiplane narrative shifts between the thoughts and emotions of the man during his final days and the historical drama unfolding in his head, asking questions about what art is and what is merely its shadow, as well as examining the meaning of death and the possibility of immortality. McKean’s signature mix of photorealism and an often-abstract surrealism, which can disconcert the reader (in a good way), expands the psychological and spiritual scope of Gaiman’s script. (Dec.)
