A blog exploring the work of Jean Giraud, aka Gir, aka Moebius. Basically, there didn't seem to be any places online that gave a comprehensive collection of his work, so I made one.
[The official site of Moebius] - While there are very few 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 some love.
Vertigo published Ronald Wimberly’s Prince of Cats last week, an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet through the eyes of Tybalt, set in 80s graffiti culture New York. It’s gorgeously illustrated, depicting katana duels and sincere, intimate “summer of our youth” moments with equal skill. Its dialogue is a clever and ceaselessly fun mashup of Shakespeare’s original text with a casual “aw shit girl” street cadence. All these elements combine perfectly, and go down real smooth. Definitely one of my favorite books of the year, I can’t recommend it enough.
