Comment

En 1990 Moebius fit une commande de Stan Lee pour un one shot du Silver Surfer.
Pour realiser les cover, Moebius fit divers dessins preparatoires dont celui-ci.
J'ai ete accroche tout de suite par ce dessin aux couleurs vertes par ce qu'il me faisait penser a une de mes cover preferees de Strange, le Strange #3.
Cette cover #3 ne faisait que reproduire la cover us du Silver Surfer #8 mais avec des dominantes vertes et jaunes.
L occasion de remarquer qu'a l'inverse de Buscema, (et d'autres dessinateurs us ) Moebius ne joue pas des " mains" pour faire des raccourcis typiques des superheros.

About Moebius

Jean Henri Gaston Giraud was a French artist, cartoonist and writer who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées (BD) tradition. Giraud garnered worldwide acclaim predominantly under the pseudonym Mœbius and to a lesser extent Gir which he used for the Blueberry series and his Western themed paintings. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki among others, he has been described as the most influential bandes dessinées artist after Hergé. His most famous works include the series Blueberry, created with writer Jean-Michel Charlier, featuring one of the first anti-heroes in Western comics. As Mœbius he created a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative, surreal, almost abstract style. These works include Arzach and the Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius. He also collaborated with avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky for an unproduced adaptation of Dune and the comic book series The Incal. Mœbius also contributed storyboards and concept designs to numerous science fiction and fantasy films, such as Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element and The Abyss. Blueberry was adapted for the screen in 2004 by French director Jan Kounen.
