There went an indisputable visionary of three mediums, whose artwork of comic books and feature film storyboards exerted a nearly incalculable influence and evinced as much from sources as disparate as Ukiyo-e prints and spaghetti western flicks. Having succumbed to cancer at the age of 73 during the same week in which conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie (Star Wars trilogy, E.T., Cocoon) perished, he's the second and greater of two phenomenal visual talents who left the world of speculative fiction richer.

No comprehensive overview of Giraud/Mœbius/Gir's works can be executed in the constraints of this format, but...

Thank you so much! My review is but a footnote; I opted to showcase a sample of his work as a reminder of his supreme preponderance in the medium.

I'm a bibliophile, ailurophile, inveterate aggregator, dedicated middlebrow and anastrophizing syntax addict. My personality type is that of superlative INTJ.
