Moebius, a.k.a. Jean Giraud (b. 1938), is the magus of French comics, ruler of the descriptive line and open landscape. He began work in the mid-1960s and, having mastered an impressive breadth of styles, Moebius has proven adaptable and adorable to comics nerds young and old with classics including his Blueberry series, Arzak, and The Airtight Garage. In 1975 he was a co-founder of the seminal anthology Metal Hurlant, which begat the mag Heavy Metal in the U.S. He also did production design for films including Alien, Tron, The Abyss and Alexander Jodorowsky's since-aborted Dune movie.
