    It sounds pretty one-sided to me.

    When I was 15 and such, Moebius had me thinking he was God half the time and then the other half I found myself distractedly swatting question marks that were swarming around my brain housing group.  Once I found that my brother was secretly dosing me with LSD, I locked up my copies of Heavy Metal and wouldn’t let him near them.  I mean, right?  What an asshole. Once that was resolved, Moebius still had the same effect on me.

    Thanks so much for linking to that Cory, so fantastic.  What a great soundtrack, too!

    Moebius’ ability to create texture and surface with tiny variations  in the quality of line is incredibly inspiring.  I don’t think there’s likely to be another draftsman like him.

    I read Heavy Metal magazine in the late 1970s. Moebius’ monthly serial, The Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius, which ran for quite a few issues was what I looked at immediately after giving the newsdealer my $1.50 (a lot for a magazine in the days when a gallon of gasoline went for as much as 75 cents!) . I agree with another commenter that not only his drawing style but his imagery were both mind-blowing and altering (the word “psychedelic” misses the mark).

    I also remember a strip of his depicting a loosely-organized Klan-like fraternity who hunted down and beat to death any immigrants from countries they didn’t like. As I recall, he drew this strip in response to an anti-immigrant law his native France’s government was either considering or had passed into law.

    Goodbye, Moebius.

    Perhaps I’ll smoke some Basorel in his honor.

    actually, this video is available in 3 segments on youtube….i posted them over the weekend on my face book account. Moebius really inspired me as a graphic artist….I read so muych of the work he did in Metal Hurlant when I was first learning French….I loved The Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius…then I realized that the dialogue really wasn’t supposed to make any real linearly logical sense…and I loved it even more….
