A blog exploring the work of Jean Henri Gaston Giraud(1938 - 2012), aka Gir, aka Moebius.Career Timeline by year: 1958 1959 1960 1961 1962 1963 1964 1965 1966 1967 1968 1969 1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
[The official site of Moebius] - While there aren't many of his works available to an English-only audience, the last thing I want to do is take away from potential sales by hosting his work here. If you speak French and can enjoy his books the way they were originally meant to be enjoyed, please click over and show him and his publishers some love.
One last story from the Quenched Consciousness panel at the Stumptown Comics Fest that I forgot to mention:
I had never heard this before, but Dave Scroggy spoke about how Moebius almost did an X-Men comic after Silver Surfer: Parable. He said that Chris Claremont was very eager to work with him, and that Marvel offered him a handsome amount of money to do it, but he had to decline because he had another Blueberry book to do. Blueberry is where Giraud received most of his income, and Marvel had a hard time trying to understand why he would turn down X-Men to draw a western comic. He also said that these illustrations of Marvel characters(that were turned into posters for comic shops) were done as a sort of apology on Moebius’ part for not being able to draw more comics for them.
So yeah, Moebius+Claremont+X-Men. That almost happened.
