    This is a thread dedicated to what is possibly the best comic artist ever.
    Moebius is the man, his art may not be very realistic but it is amazing non-the -less.

    The intricate details of his work always remind me of Winsor McCay, which is never a bad thing. :up:

    I did not know that, but that's awesome. Also, it reminds me that I meant to check Netflix for that. :)

    I love Moebius' work....it was one of the few reasons to buy Heavy Metal mag.

    This thread has the second mention of Winsor McCay I've seen today (Noir mentioned him in another thread)....about time his name got out there again.

    I bought Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend a little while ago in this big order of trades and graphic novels from Amazon. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but I'm looking forward to it. :)

    My exact thoughts. I was always infatuated with Moebius' work because it was like LITTLE NEMO IN SLUMBERLAND invading familiar characters from the modern era. His Surfer stuff could have been from Slumberland.

    Well, that 16 year old Wired article is a bit out of date :p

    Since then there's been a few things based on his work...

    Renegade (2004) starring Black Swan's Vincent Cassel is based on the Mike Blueberry stuff. I also know there's been a few animated things, like Thru the Moebius Strip.

    I have never really been able to get into Moebius, but I like his Giraud side. Very classic Franco-Belgian comic:

    I had completely missed that he died yesterday the first time I read this thread.

    It is sad. Honored be his memory.
