Jean Giraud, better known as Moebius, is one of the comic medium’s few truly deified creators, and Dark Horse’s hefty Moebius Library series might as well be considered a public service at this point, preserving and sharing work that’s rarely seen print in English. The next entry in the collection, out February 7, is Inside Moebius Part 1, which collects the first two volumes of Moebius’ famous study on his own creative process. Throughout the six installments of the original series, Moebius playfully, critically depicts his creative mindscape as a vast desert populated by his most famous characters—and a younger iteration of himself. Paste has an exclusive peek at Inside Moebieus Part 1 below, along with Dark Horse’s official solicitation text for the volume.
Inside Moebius Part 1
Working closely with Moebius Production in France, Dark Horse presents Inside Moebius Part 1, the next volume in the Moebius Library. As he explores a beautiful, expansive desert that represents his mind, Moebius draws himself encountering his favorite characters—creations like Blueberry, Arzak, and Major Grubert—and also meets a younger version of himself! A six-part study, Inside Moebius Part 1 collects the first two chapters in this fantastic exploration of a creator meeting his own creations to discuss his artistic process and the real world issues that encroach into his thoughts.
