Description

Just the sound of it implies a stark, near-futuristic theme, much like the themes in V for Vendetta. It also has an implication of media. This is certainly true as the premise of Brian's first ever graphic novel is about how media can be an extremely powerful tool for propaganda.

Just the sound of it implies a stark, near-futuristic theme, much like the themes in V for Vendetta. Often times, the information given forth by media can and will affect how whole communities think. Also, it touches upon censorship and the subject of free speech in America. Any of these things sound deep and complex? It is.

He is a resident of Southend-on-Sea, England. Titles published by various British publishers include: Deadline "United We Fall" (with Nigel Dobbyn, Deadline Publications, 1990).

Warren Ellis (Goodreads Author) (Introduction). Channel Zero is your Brian Wood primer. Threads from this initial work can be seen running throughout his comics. But as opposed to the polished machine that is DMZ, Channel Zero is aggressively rough around the edges. Featuring a gallery of reproducible anti-Clean Act propaganda stickers and flyers, Wood evokes DIY underground ‘zine design and mentality.

Praise for Brian Wood & Channel Zero: "Wood's message is clear enough: apathy is the real enemy, and it is harder to fight than any totalitarian government. Someone's remembered what comics are for. Meet Brian Wood. -Warren Ellis, award-winning writer of Planetary. Controlled sense of rhythm.

Channel Zero. Just the sound of it implies a stark, near-futuristic theme, much like the themes in V for Vendetta. It also has an implication of media. This is certainly true as the premise of Brian's first ever graphic novel is about how media can be an extremely powerful tool for propaganda. Often times, the information given forth by media can and will affect how whole communities think. Also, it touches upon censorship and the subject of free speech in America.

Any of these things sound deep and complex? It is. It is deep and complex. It has so many political and social references to our current and future times that at the end of it all you will feel overwhelmed. The amount of information in this one is huge and you will find yourself having alot to digest along the way. Is this good or bad? To be honest, I have no idea. It touches on so many things that I'm not entirely sure what Brian was going for. Is it about censorship? Yes. Is it about consumerism? Yes. It is so many things and it feels pulled in too many directions, idea wise.

It all revolves around The Clean Act, which supposedly has killed freedom of expression and has caused America to become a sort of pseudo-communist country in which the government certainly knows best. So, no free speech and the things which were deemed 'unholy' by the higher powers are outlawed.

But as you know, the moment the government tries to stamp down on the people, the people start to fight back. In a sense, Jennie 2.5, a self styled media activist, was the one Brian has 'chosen' to represent them. The one who decided to do something, the radical.

The conflict establishes itself. The basic, age old idea of the people VS the government.

Take those ideas, make it as 'techy' and sophisticated as possible, that's what Channel Zero is. Brian has this very cool (sometimes too cool for its own good) style which lulls you into a semi-hypnotic techno geek journey down whatever spiral he spins out of his twisted mind. That's who Brian is, apparently.

If for nothing else other than being thrown head first into an array of political rants, read this book. I bet you will find yourself learning more about the society around you, even though, sometimes, the plot may leave you scratching your head.

the 1st story of Brian wood. 100% raw, pure passion project. dense, wordy. a bit more novel then graphic at times but beautiful none the less. a must have for Brian wood fans. comes with a lot of great extras, early sketches and candid commentary. very politically charged and much like 1984 is very dry at times with the oppressive political aspects that rule the world. the unglorious life of a rebel leader is on full display as well a great look at how media changes the meaning of not just our actions but also ourselves.

1984 is coming folks.... educate yourselves...

bought this book for the kindle. it was very hard to read since the type is small on certain pages. on the kindle i was unable to stretch the page to read the text. i bought the book (again) from apple and was able to stretch the pages to read the small text.

I've never read a book as ambitious as this before. There was every chance for Brian Wood to totally fall on his face, and he flew instead. This, and its prequel, Jennie One, make a FANTASTIC story. Get this NOW, before it's gone.
I borrowed this from my local library. The art work looked impressive, and I was intrigued by the media manipulation aspect. If I would have read this when I was a rebellious teen, I would have proudly displayed this comic in my collection. We see now, more than ever, a resistance to shut down a view point that goes against mainstream media (news outlets and Hollywood). It did not foresee today's current events because it was staring in the opposite direction with hope that an angry mod could not be manipulated into striving against foundations that could heavily improve our society. To Brian's credit, he had the core of distorting news, just through the eyes of teenagers who focus on one aspect while missing the bigger picture.
