Moebius

Wong told me this afternoon that the great Moebius (Jean Giraud) passed away yesterday after losing his battle with Cancer… he was only 73.

Ever since Wong introduced me to his work over twenty years ago now, I’ve been captivated by his beautiful drawings, and I wrote recently about his wonderful work and specifically Arzach, the silent pterodactyl rider. I am very saddened to hear that he will draw no more..

His most recent publication in the UK was The Incal, which collected a series of works from the late 1980’s early 1990’s, and is in my opinion, a very fitting high on which to bow out..
