Tweets Of The Week

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.

@ ManMadeMoon All the great sci-fi artists are leaving us... :( RIP Moebius.

@ 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

One for the #Moebius fans. He was one of the greats.

@ 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.

@ somebadideas Jean Giraud aka Moebius did this drawing of Nausicaa for Hayao Miyazaki. A titan of the imagination, RIP

@ jock4twenty I was lucky enough to meet Jean Giraud twice, both times at #ficomic in Barcelona. An amazing artist. R.I.P.

@ davegibbons90 RIP Jean Giraud.

@ neveldinetaylor moebius :(

@ BRIANMBENDIS oh, my heart breaks! RIP Jean Giraud, Moebius a gigantic true hero of mine.

@ 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".
