RIP Jean "Moebius" Giraud

The legendary French comic book artist Jean Giraud, better known by the alias Moebius, passed away today at the age of 73.

Here's the write-up we did for him when we had our Top Comic Book Artists poll back in 2010:

Jean Giraud was in his early 20s when he began to work with writer Jean-Michel Charlier on the western comic book Fort Navajo. The character of Lieutenant Blueberry became so popular that he eventually spun off into his own magazine...

Moebius was the name Giraud took for his comic book work having to do with science fiction and fantasy, and those ended up becoming perhaps his most well-known works (although Blueberry is still pretty darn famous).

During the 1980s, Marvel (through their Epic line) reprinted translated versions of pretty much all of Moebius' most classic works, and that's what I'll be presenting here.

First, with writer Alejandro Jodorowsky, the Incal series...

plus Moebius' most notable works as writer/artist - Arzach...

and the Airtight Garage...

Plus, in 1988, Moebius did a famous Silver Surfer one-shot with Stan Lee, titled Parable...
