Moebius a.k.a. Jean Giraud has died

Comics artist Jean Giraud, a.k.a. Moebius, died at age 73 on March 10.

According to the Los Angeles Times obit, the Parisian-born Giraud was admired by an eclectic group of famous people, including Hayao Miyazaki, Federico Fellini, George Lucas, Rick Carter, James Cameron, Paulo Coelho, Stan Lee, and Ridley Scott.

Moebius helped to create the look of Scott’s sci-fi/horror classic Alien, in addition to Steven Lisberger’s TRON, Ron Howard’s Willow (based on a story by George Lucas), James Cameron’s The Abyss, and Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element.

Upon announcing Giraud’s death, his publishing house, Dargaud, said the comics world had lost “one of its greatest masters.”

Steven Lisberger concurred, telling the Times, “It’s one thing to be talented and work hard enough to put your spirit and soul in your work, and it’s a totally other thing to have a spirit and soul that is so beautiful and wise that it deserves to be put into art.” Giraud, Lisberger added, was “a very rare man, a true master, and his life’s work is a masterpiece.”
