Jean “Moebius” Giraud, cartoonist extraordinaire, has died. While his name may not be widely known outside of comics circles, his artwork has had a wide influence on the broader culture – from his designs for Tron, The Fifth Element, The Abyss, and Alien, to his extensive comics work in such magazines as Heavy Metal (and the film of the same name), his unique blend of sci-fi futurism with a wild west motifs will live on. Here’s hoping all of his work will find its way to print and stay there.
