Jean Giraud dead at 73

Artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud has succumbed to illness at the age of 73.

Giraud was perhaps most famous for drawing sci-fi series like "The Inkal" and "The Airtight Garage", but I was most fond of his work on the "Blueberry" graphic novels. They remain some of the greatest western comics to ever be published.

Even people who don't know who he was have probably had their lives influenced by his artwork, as he also worked as a concept artist on many widely known sci-fi and fantasy movies, including "Willow", "Alien", and "Tron".

  1. What a fantastic artist. RIP indeed. I just recently re-read a Silver Surfer graphic novel he and Stan Lee did together - it was impeccable.
