Incredible artist, both in comics and film. He will be missed.

Oh man. I've never read any of his stuff, but he was really, really amazing. I really loved a program that Sky had on about him a few years back. And he contributed to two of my favourite films, too. We're definitely worse off without him.

MULTIPLE media have lost a genius today; from beautiful graphic novels, to his contributions to movies like Tron, Alien, Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland, The Abyss and even Masters of the Universe.

RIP Monsieur Giraud, when you get to the great beyond, I hope it's even half as cool looking as your designs...

Gaming too. His artwork was a major inspiration behind the look and world of Panzer Dragoon, for which I'm eternally grateful.

Hearing about Moebius reminds me of that bit in Crimson Tide.

Rivetti: It's really too silly to talk about, Sir. I'd really just forget about...
Hunter: I don't give a damn about what you'd rather forget about. Why were you two fighting?
Rivetti: I said, the Kirby Silver Surfer was the only real Silver Surfer. And that the Moebius Silver Surfer was shit. And Bennefield's a big Moebius fan. And it got of hand. I pushed him. He pushed me. I lost my head, Sir. I'm Sorry.

Hunter: You have to set an example even in the face of stupidity. Everybody who reads comic books knows that the Kirby Silver Surfer is the only true Silver Surfer. Now am I right or wrong?
Rivetti: You're right, Sir.
Hunter: Now get out of here.
Rivetti: Yes, Sir.

He truly was a gifted, amazing artist. My condolences to him and his family. It looks like he had a really full, fulfilling life. :)

The guy was one of the giants of comics. I'd say that about half of Dave Gibbons' work in Watchmen was heavily influenced by him (with the other half by EC Comics).

Yeah, we talked about it at the "Bande dessinée" library (our equivalent to you guys' comic stores)...
Such sad news...

RIP Mœbius
This legendary French comic book artist is sadly no more.

Long live Blueberry and Arzach!

Now he's gone, and the comic books world is already feeling much smaller now...
