1. Jean "Moebius" Giraud died yesterday, one of the cornerstones of my personal theology. This was the first piece of his art I remember seeing, though I'm sure it probably really wasn't. It was the piece that certainly inspired me to seek out as much of his work as I possibly could, though - the cover art to the second volume of the Epic reprints, from 1987, if memory serves.
2. Here's Cliff Chiang's tribute to the man, from the What Not sketch blog.
his reaction to the news made great reading. I hope publishers realise the hunger out there for Anglophone versions of Moebius's works, and cash in greedily on the wave of inevitable interest.
4. I read this at Tony "Riot" Wright's Tumblr and felt righteous fury rising: Brett Ewins is an unwell man being victimised by the Metropolitan Police, and we can't idly stand by.
