Jean Giraud / Moebius, 1938-2012

We at The Beguiling were very sorry to hear the news that the artist Jean Giraud, best known under the name “Moebius”, passed away this weekend. We have long been fans and supporters of his work here at The Beguiling, and we have long carried as much of his work as we could get his hands on. It is truly unfortunate that there is so little available in English by this talented creator, in either of his artistic identities.

We have taken the opportunity to prominently feature all of Moebius’ work on our main table downstairs, and we have dozens of back-issues of Heavy Metal magazine that feature his work on the second floor. Please ask at the main counter if you’d like a recommendation on where to start enjoying his work.
