Influential artist Moebius passed away

Growing up, I always looked forward to getting my hands on comics and
stories created by Jean Henri Gaston Giraud aka Moebius. If not in
pages of Heavy Metal magazine, then in books like "The Elsewhere
Prince", I saw his genius over and over again. His artwork and ideas
influence me and my work to this day because it's a mix of science
fiction, fantasy and reality.

Take for instance, "The Long Tomorrow," a gritty, sexy, noir detective
story which is said to have inspired Ridley Scott, George Lucas and
others. Originally published in Heavy Metal magazine during 1976, you
can still track down a compiled graphic novel published by Marvel of
all people on Ebay.
