What makes Channel Zero so significant is that it is unapologetically experimental; The result is a graphic novel whose form and content could not be more perfectly matched.

It’s about anger as a positive force of creation . . . Someone’s remembered what comics are for.
Meet Brian Wood.
— Warren Ellis
[Channel Zero] quickly came to occupy the same space that books like The Sandman had done for years — highly cherished, heavily defended, and if you hadn’t read it, you just weren’t that cool. It was original, blatantly prescient, and ahead of its time.

it met several very important criteria for comics activists: self-contained and intelligent, with a female protagonist who absolutely destroyed comics stereotypes.

It was unsurprising, then, that Wood went on to help define the aesthetic of comics activism. If it can be said to be an actual movement, then Wood is without a doubt its official propagandist.
