BBC Video: Moebius Redux: A Life in Pictures (2007)

Above: a 1979 issue of Jim Steranko's MEDIASCENE, with ALIEN concept art by Moebius.

Below is the complete BBC documentary, "Moebius Redux: A Life in Pictures," filmed five years before Jean Giraud's death.

One of the most influential cartoonists of the 20th century, Jean Giraud, who also drew work as "Gir" and "Moebius," talks about his life and influences. Included are interviews with Alejandro Jodorowsky, Philippe Druillet, H.R. Giger, Stan Lee, Jim Lee and Mike Mignola. Some wonderful moments here, and so many terrific quotes from Moebius and his collaborators and admirers.
