Continuing the horrid trend of 2012 of loosing amazing contributors to the 9th art… we just lost Moebious!
His real name was Jean Henri Gaston Giraud, and was born in Nogent-sur-Marne east of Paris on May 8, 1938.
He reached international fame with his classic western series, Lieutenant Blueberry, but also had forays into movies and american comics, collaborating with Stan Lee on the Silver Surfer.
The world of the arts is now poorer and smaller with the passing of this humble but magnificent artists.
You will be missed.
