When I heard that Moebius had pasted I was working hauling rank garbage for 22hr and did not have the faculties to totally process how felt about it. Is it callous and inappropriate to say I thought the dude was already dead? In my defense I'm not the fanboy I should be, I rarely research the lives of some of my life time favorites. Or is it a simple mistake that a bitter hipster such as I, who only venerates the dead, would assume a hero in my person pantheon does not walk among us. Well I guess he doesn't anymore, and we have lost a unparalleled magician. Along with impossible knockers, Ghost in the Shell, Star Wars, Moebius drew me to Sci-Fi and I kept coming back. So few contain a mind for image and story like him, I rip him off daily and would be much less the scrawler I am if it weren't for him.
This blog Monster Brainshas been posting lots of examples of his awesomeness. I suggest we all take time out of our day to fly around in our own impossible ships, deny time and distance, and melt a beast like candle wax.
