He was my favorite comic book artist, and his film design work was top notch. A tremendous loss to the artistic world.

He made enough contributions to the film and comic book worlds that I think it's appropriate to have a thread here and in that forum as well.

He was a rare talent. He had whole worlds inside his head, and he knew what they looked like.

Ralph McQuarie one week and Moebius the next. What a bunch of bad news at one time.

Moebius influenced two of my favorite films, Tron and Blade Runner, so rest in peace sir.
