Jean “Moebius” Giraud

I’ve had a few moments of epiphany in comics, and one of them was when I discovered the artist Moebius, who died at the weekend. There’s never been anyone with his vision; I’ve sometimes (whimsically) even thought his art was evidence that there was extra-terrestrial life, as his imagination was never earth-bound and far out of reach of anyone on this planet.

If anyone says “there’s no such thing as a new idea”, tell them: look at the work of Moebius.

Paper Science 7

I should have posted about this a while ago: Paper Science 7 is out now, and I’m delighted to have been asked back to contribute a comic for it. I love the newsprint format for comics and PS has been a particularly impressive example. I talk a bit more about it in a short interview with editor Matt Sheret that was published on the Forbidden Planet blog, and there are further interviews with contributors Marc Ellerby, Josceline Fenton, Philippa Rice and His Majesty the King of Things.

All the editions of Paper Science can be bought from here, or at good comic shops. Very much recommended.
