To clarify, he assisted the PD team by providing some artwork for the creative process-

He is also a close friend of Miyazaki, naming his daughter Nausicaa even.

Among his works are Blueberry, XIII, a Halo graphic novel and Azarach.

May he rest in peace.

Sacrebleu! I shall raise my glass in honor of a true master as I eat my Brie de Meaux and escargot!


#3

Huge loss for the fantasy world. And it’s weird how games like Ico/Colossus are championed as VG works of art (which they are) but Panzer Dragoon gets swept under the rug.


#4

Sad news. He was insanely good.

Dave Gibbons just tweeted that Moebius was the only artist he ever asked to do a con sketch for him.


#5

I’ll have to dig out Orta tonight and give it a play in his honor.


#6

Great man who gave us good memories


#7

Holy shit this man is like my fucking idol…

I can’t believe he’s dead…

2012 fucking up and killing all the wrong people…
