RIP Jean Giraud, aka Moebius

Not that many young US or UK comics readers will know who he is... Suffice to say this is big sad news for the comics industry and SFF genre.

Along with McQuarrie that's quite a blow to artistic visionaries.

He was one of the greatest and most influential comic book artists ever. Very sad news that he's passed. Rest in peace, Jean Giraud.

Just finished writing an orbituary for a German website. He was one of the greatest artist, period.
