Description

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. As Moebius, he was one of the most innovative and influential comic artists of the 20th century.

This book was done in 1989, after Giraud had developed his career as Moebius, so Gir's style has become more simple, more Moebius-like.

Blueberry was my favorite series during my teen ages, so owning this piece of art from a comic master as Giraud/Moebius is a child's dream come true.
