Going online this morning, I was greeted with a deluge of sorrow at the world’s loss of the incredible skill and imagination of Moebius, as well as countless fans sharing their favourite works of his. I was going to collect some of the wonderful links being passed around – to documentaries, 2010’s Transe-Forme exhibition, a conversation with Miyazaki – but comicsbeat.com has already done it, so please do take a look at their wonderful overview here.
I must admit I became aware of Moebius’ work indirectly, through other artists he has inspired or films he’s worked on. There is a lot of his work I’ve yet to explore. I look forward to doing so.
