Signal to Noise (ISBN 1-56971-144-5) is a graphic novel written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Dave McKean. It was originally serialised in the UK style magazine The Face, beginning in 1989, and collected as a graphic novel in 1992, published by Victor Gollancz Ltd in the UK and by Dark Horse Comics in the US.
The story examines the relationship between images of an imagined World Apocalypse and the experience of one man's personal, individual apocalypse. In it a film-maker learns he is suffering from a terminal illness, and imagines a last film which he will never have time to make before he dies.
There have been two adaptations of the graphic novel into other media: in 1996, Gaiman adapted his own story for a BBC radio broadcast, with music by McKean; and in 1999, a stage adaptation written by Marc Rosenbush and Robert Toombs was mounted in Chicago with Gaiman's cooperation.
