R.I.P. 'Moebius'

http://www.allocine.fr/article/fiche...=18611597.html

R.I.P. Great One, and thank you for all of the entertainment and imagination for all the years.

I do not know how popular he was in America, but if you see Tron or Alien or some other famous movie his artistic talent is present.

Regards,

I grew up with his art, reading Heavy Metal in the 70's and early 80's. He was a visionary and helped inspire my young imagination.

His work was mostly in color, as I recall, whilst lesser mere mortals' work was relegated to B&W...

For some reason I found this fitting. RIP

Once you said that, I knew why it sounded familiar.

RIP

His Iron Man and Silver Surfer were to become icons in their own right:



But his work for Heavy Metal was what most folks associate with him:



Yes, he was VERY influential, and will be missed.

Extraordinary Barracks Rat reading

Whilst stuck in IRF in Italy, on the back of a deuce and half in <fill in the blank>, Europe; and broke Sundays drinking beer in the room listening to Yes. Wild ass imagery, broken & strange characters and the reason I want to spend a day at the G. Pompideau Museum (it was freakin' closed the last time I was there )

Heavy Metal was a class act back in the day... they should do a better movie now - a B&W animation segment of his style would be world class.
