  1. Although Giraud’s work is more famous in Europe, and particularly France and Belgium, where comics tend to get more of the artistic esteem they deserve, his influence on contemporary American comics and sci-fi film design should not be underestimated.
  2. Jean Giraud lives one of the most interesting double lives in comics history. Under his own name, he is the artist of the legendary 'Blueberry' western series, and under the pseudonym of Moebius, he is one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century.
  3. Hailed as a visionary talent for his work on such projects as The Incal, Blueberry, The Airtight Garage, Arzach, Métal Hurlant and much, much more, it is practically impossible to overstate Giraud's influence on modern comics and science fiction.

  4. Jean Giraud, AKA Moebius, passed away today. He was an absolute giant in the fields of comics and science fiction and I was saddened to hear of his passing. This is a drawing I did this afternoon as a small tribute. Personal work, 2012
