Dark Horse to release Mœbius Library in an upcoming Hardcover Series

Independent Comic book company Dark Horse (home to Hellboy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and dozens of other popular licensed and independent titles) has just announced that they will be releasing the library of Mœbius in a series of hardcover volumes available for the first time in nearly 20 years!  Mœbius (real name Jean Giraud) was a highly influential artist whose work has helped to define the landscape of science fiction and fantasy comics. He was also frequently showcased in film, with his work being used or inspiring movies such as Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element and more (he has also helped with  set and character design for Alejandro Jodorowsky's infamously unreleased treatment of DUNE.)  The legendary artist passed away on March 10, 2012.

Mœbius has been a huge inspiration for illustrators everywhere, so this is a monumental announcement to say the least!  “As a true visionary in the comics medium, it is a pleasure to once again publish collections of Mœbius’ work,” said Dark Horse president and publisher Mike Richardson. “His influence on contemporary comics is undeniable, and it’s a true honor to be working with Isabelle Giraud, his wife and partner, to help ensure that his legacy will continue to live on for a new generation of readers.”

 More information on The Mœbius Library will be available soon, so check back for updates.
