How much of our brain we use is an often-debated matter, but artists, truly iconic ones, seemingly tap into parts of it that many of us didn't know existed. That's what it's like looking at the work of late French artist and writer Jean "Moebius" Giraud (The Incal, Silver Surfer: Parable), whose transportive art has captivated audiences for decades. His art has influenced the world of comics, cinema, and literature and will continue to do so for many generations.
Moebius completists have been enjoying the production value of the Dark Horse Comics’ Moebius Library, which is a deluxe, dedicated commitment to present Moebius' International work into definitive, shelfworthy, English-language editions. In 2017, Moebius Library won the Eisner Award for Best U.S. Edition of International Material. Currently, Dark Horse is translating Inside Moebius, the lovely self-exploration of Moebius' mind with his creations. This past May, Inside Moebius Part 2 was released. Now SYFY WIRE has the exclusive 8-page preview of Part 3, which will hit comic book shops and book stores on October 3.
Inside Moebius is a deconstruction of the artist's mind, his creative process, and his characters, such as Blueberry, Arzak, Steel, Atan, and Major Grubert. This latest release, which collects and translates the original fifth and sixth chapters of Inside Moebius, is considered the trippiest of them all. In addition to finding the man face to face with his creations, Moebius encounters multiple versions of himself throughout the years to argue with them about art and creativity.
Inside Moebius Part 3 is 280 pages in 8 3/8” x 10 7/8” hardcover format, priced at $39.99, and will find its way to your local comic shops on October 3. See our exclusive preview below to get a taste of that mind trip, which readers and fans are sure to get lost in.
