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.
In 1976. Les Humanoïdes Associés co-founder Jean-Pierre Dionnet started a female-creator-centric magazine as a companion to Metal Hurlant. It was called Ah! Nana, and all content was created by women, except that one man was invited for each issue to contribute. Issue 2 was published in the beginning of 1977, and had a controversial 4 page strip called The Apple Pie that was drawn by Moebius and written by Claudine Conin, his wife at the time.
The Women in Comics Wiki has more information about Ah! Nanahere, including a nice gallery of its 9 covers.

Nice, I love all of these sweet delicious apple pie’s!!
Thanks so much for all the sweet Moebius finds!
Okay, this will be the last submission I’ll be taking for the Apple Pie Covers thing. I’ve been meaning to pick another Moebius piece for people to cover, because this whole thing is fun to have going, and Brandon Graham picked one for me. More on that later.
Thank you to everyone who submitted! Please feel free to submit to the next one. If you do, your work will be viewed by, at least, the 3,500 followers of this tumblr. HOW’S THAT FOR ENTICEMENT? As before, all submissions will be credited and have links to the artist’s place of online residence.
i’m a big fan of the blog. been influenced by Mobius since i was a kid. i got a blog called DAY ONE 2012 on tumblr where i post a piece of art i’ve done each day. for a good few weeks i’ve been posting old art i’d scanned in advance from my archives but this Apple pie project gave me a much needed shot of inspiration to work on something new. thanks! and keep up the good work~ L
