    For those interested in comic art, today is a sad one... just got news that one of the true visionaries, Jean Giraud, AKA Moebius, is dead.

    Best known for his epic work, Arzach, and a major influence on Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli, he was also a mainstay of the amazing French comic, Metal Hurlant, which totally wowed me as a teenager, not least for the frequent and very beautiful naked women...

    RIP Moebius.

    Thanks FM. I had never seen his work before now but just had a quick peek on Google. Quite amazing.

    RIP Moebius. M├ętal Hurlant made up for a lot of tedious dramas by Beaumarchais and kept my faith in the French language. The Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius!

    Ah, now I know who did the pictures on the wall of a friend's house. I have commented on them but I don't think she knew who Moebius was either!

    I'd assumed you were all talking about August Ferdinand Mobius, the mathemetician (and co-discoverer of the Mobius strip).

    That's a good point. His coffin would have no easily separable inside or outside...
