DARK HORSE AND MOEBIUS PRODUCTION ADD TO THE MOEBIUS LIBRARY!
Dark Horse is thrilled to announce the third volume in the Moebius Library with Moebius Library: Inside Moebius Part 1. Moebius Library: Inside Moebius Part 1 is preceded by New York Times bestseller and Eisner award-winner Moebius Library: The World of Edena and Moebius Library: The Art of Edena.
Dark Horse is working closely with Moebius Production in France to produce the beginning of Moebius’s intensely personal project in English for the first time. Moebius Library: Inside Moebius Part 1 follows Moebius as he explores both his mind and the beautiful, expansive desert of his own creation. Moebius draws himself encountering some of his favorite characters—creations like Blueberry, Arzak, and Major Grubert—and also meets a younger version of himself as some hard realities from life encroach upon his reveries. A six-part study, Moebius Library: Inside Moebius Part 1 collects the first two chapters in this fantastic exploration of a creator meeting his own creations. Dark Horse will release all parts to this exceptional, intimate series in 2018!
Praise for Moebius Library: The World of Edena:
“The whole of Moebius is laid bare… It features nearly all of the cartoonist’s aesthetic and intellectual concerns: gargantuan spaces, mystic crystals, and the play of the masculine and the feminine. Here, the natural and the artificial overlap and converge, and science fiction and fantasy are blended together.”—AV Club
“Glowingly illustrated in the elegant clear-line art and rich colors for which Moebius is justly revered, the book careens spectacularly through science fiction, fantasy, allegory, pop psychology, and psychedelia.”—Publishers Weekly
“Although many American publishers have petitioned Moebius Production for English licensing rights, it is a testament to Dark Horse’s relationship with the Giraud family and the stellar, commendable work of editor Philip R. Simon that this new The World of Edena collection now exists.”—ICv2
“All of this illustrated by the simple and masterful pen of the artist, colored in near psychedelic vibrancy at times, with muted beauty at others, always in strikingly balanced compositions. Moebius… remains one of my favorite artists, and Moebius Library: The World of Edena traces his development for nearly two decades within its covers.”—Bookgasm
