Bad Signal is a comic book series created in 2003 by Warren Ellis and Jacen Burrows, and published by Avatar Press.
The series is a comic book in name only, as it actually combines Ellis' commentary on bizarre, obscure news articles from around the world (but mostly the US) with many and various artistic interpretations of those stories. The language is, characteristically, bleak and witty and the illustrations are either satirical or tragic, and occasionally a bit of both. Bad Signal is a tour through the strangest human obsessions that Ellis et al. could find and becomes, eventually, a meditation on the contemporary tendency toward obsessive behaviour in the first place.

“Good masters generally have bad slaves, and bad slaves have good masters.”
—Herodotus (c. 484424 B.C.)
“Mistakes, scandals, and failures no longer signal catastrophe. The crucial thing is that they be made credible, and that the public be made aware of the efforts being expended in that direction. The marketing immunity of governments is similar to that of the major brands of washing powder.”
—Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
