Moebius remembered, a Sarah Connor Chronicles reunion and which of Buffy’s Trio was in the original pilot presentation? Find out in this week’s tweets!
It’s been a dark few days for the world of legendary sci-fi artists. Only last week we dedicated this section to the ground-breaking Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie, and now the equally influential Jean Giraud, aka Moebius, has also slipped from the mortal coil. Giraud worked primarily on French bandes dessinées, but his impact stretches much further. His design work on Alien , Tron , The Abyss , The Empire Strikes Back and The Fifth Element is unmistakable, while ripples of his twisted style echo throughout cyberpunk classics Blade Runner and The Matrix . The Twitter has been remembering one of SF and fantasy’s few true visionaries in the most appropriate way possible, by showcasing his art for the world to see. He will be missed.
@ GreatDismal RIP Moebius. Wonderful and inspiring works.
@ wossy Sad news. Jean Giraud aka Moebius has left the planet. One of the true masters of bande desinee. I have a pic he drew for me.Will tweet it
@ neilhimself RIP Jean Giraud who wrote and drew as Moebius. His art inspired me when I was 14, & his stories did too, because I didn't understand them.
And because a couple of people asked, my favourite of all Moebius stories was the Jodorowsky-written EYE OF CAT in Taboo.
@ davegibbons90 RIP Jean Giraud.
@ neveldinetaylor moebius :(
@ BRIANMBENDIS oh, my heart breaks! RIP Jean Giraud, Moebius a gigantic true hero of mine.

@ DamonLindelof Why is everyone so surprised JOHN CARTER is totally awesome? I went with high expectations and they were SURPASSED. Epic. Fun. SEE IT.
Clarifying, Buffy had an early, shorter version of its pilot filmed, called a "presentation". Jonathan (Danny) was in this presentation.
@ grumpygamer Almost got [into] a fist fight with the Limbo guys last night over my comment in the KS video where I said Limbo wasn't an adventure game.

@ wilw Anne and I are watching her first ever episode of TNG together. So of course it's Home Soil.
@ HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN Out of all psychic live action film, I like Cronenberg's "Scanners" the best but [I] also... like "The Fury" by De Palma. I even paid homage to Psychomantis in MGS1. Lately, I rarely witness this kind in today's film. I am dying to see psychic film that's already out in US, "Chronicle".
@ ManMadeMoon To all you lucky guys %26 gals playing Mass Effect 3 today, you BETTER appreciate the sacrifice Im making to get this script finished! ;)
