    Yes, Jean Giraud finally lost a long battle with bad health. He was 73, way too young if you ask me.

    For those not familiar, here's a sample:

    [Actually, I would love to put up a sample but I don't have enough posts yet:(]

    Search Google images. There's plenty.

    RIP.

    I saw a documentary about him a few years back, and then bought a collection called Arzarch. He was certainly one of the more original artists. And yes, 73 is too young these days.

    I knew him as Moebius from his contributions to Heavy Metal magazine. Jean Giraud's graphic tale ARZACH was an inspiration for one of the stories in the animated movie Heavy Metal (Taarna).

    I watched a few French documetaries highlighting Jean's work, from his early days drawing a western series called Blueberry, and wonderful Native American Indian art, to some of his later work including Marvel Comics Silver Surfer series which he won an award for.

    Indeed he had his own unique style of art, I will miss him too.

    Rest in peace Moebius.

    Two separate threads merged, in case anyone's confused.

    I was really saddened by this news, i have only read his art in Blueberry and seen little of his other works. He is one of those rare,original comic artist that make the comic book art look like real art.

    73 is way too young these days. Selfishly you want the legends to live longer.

    Sad news. His arts and designs influenced me a lot in the past, i.e.: Time Masters.

    As I mentioned earlier, the late great Moebius,
    has illustrated for Marvel Comic's SILVER SURFER.
