Passing of Another Great Artist

The terribly sad news of the passing of another great artist, Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, brings me back to the blog.

I was in the middle of laying out a graphic tribute to him, when my deadlines pushed that project to a back burner. I bring forward the cover and title page at this time to pay honor to his prolific genius. Down the road I will post the full tribute.

Condolences to his family, friends and fans.
