Jean Giraud, Moebius 1938-2012


I don’t have much to say. He was truly an amazing illustrator. I used to stare at his lines, forgetting whatever story he was illustrating. The lines on the rocks, the lines on the hands. He was a master who will be remembered until well after the medium has published its last page.

I sat with my French schoolbook and a copy of some Moebius comic, probably ‘Les Maîtres du temps,’ hoping to understand something. I gave up and managed well enough to follow the story.

I’ve collected links to some of the articles about his passing. There is an excellent documentary at the bottom.

Moebius' design for the He-Man movie were a little cooler than the final product
