Ha muerto la fantasía, adiós MOEBIUS

(*) Adoptó el seudónimo "Moebius", que tomó del astrónomo y matemático alemán August Möbius, aunque, como explica él mismo Jean Giraud "no tanto para ocultarme como para inventar algo sobre mí mismo que fuera más allá de mí mismo. Moebius no está detrás, sigue una existencia paralela a la mía."
Jean Giraud (8 de mayo de 1938Nogent-sur-MarneVal-de-MarneFrancia - 10 de marzo de 2012París, Francia1 )
PARIS - French comic-book artist and designer Jean Giraud, known as Moebius, died Saturday aged 74 after a long illness, an associate and work colleague said.

Jean Henri Gaston Giraud was one of France's leading cartoonists who also found fame in Japan and the United States.

Born at Nogent-sur-Marne east of Paris on May 8, 1938, he began after art school training as an illustrator for advertisers and the fashion industry before turning to comic strips.

He found fame when he created the Lieutenant Blueberry western character and adopted the pseudonym Moebius for illustrations of science fiction books and magazines.

As well as being published in top French magazines, he worked with Japanese manga artists and co-produced an adventure of US comic-book superhero The Silver Surfer with Stan Lee.

Giraud also contributed to a number of blockbuster movies, and in 2010 France's Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art staged a major retrospective of his work.
