Comment

Ce portrait "crepusculaire" de Blueberry montre un Blueberry plus tellement jeune (c'est plus qu'un euphemisme, c est une litote !) les cheveux gomines, pas rase et au regard chaleureux et bienveillant.
On croirait lire dans son regard qu'en vieillissant il a acquis une forme de sagesse, de maturite et d'experience qui ne sont propres qu'aux hommes de son age. Et que si, en fait , "la valeur attend surement le nombre des annees".
Il y a aussi ce cote mexicain qui ressort. Surement que Blueberry a du sang chicanos dans les veines !
Sans doute est ce un des derniers portraits intimes de Blueberry qu on verra jamais sur la toile.
Adieu Giraud ! Adieu Blueberry .

About Jean Giraud

Jean Giraud had one of the most interesting double lives in comics history. Under his own name, he co-created the legendary western comic 'Blueberry' with writer Jean-Michel Charlier. He also used the shortened signature of "Gir" for this series. This cowboy series was noted for its highly realistic artwork and more gritty, complex and adult storylines, which had a tremendous impact on several other European western comics from the late 1960s on. Giraud also created another western series with Charlier, 'Jim Cutlass' (1979), but later wrote the stories himself while Christian Rossi provided artwork. As Moebius, he was one of the most innovative and influential comic artists of the 20th century. Text (c) Lambiek See also Moebius
