I read about this a few hours ago and I'm feeling really sad. He made a part of my childhood.

Au revoir, maître.

I have this crazy theory about science fiction. I think all science fiction movies are inherently nostalgic. I think Blade Runner is one of the most nostalgic movies you can think of. Gattaca is incredibly nostalgic somehow. So with this nostalgia, they become weirdly personal. And that got me back to where we were starting which was by going as far away from humanity and Earth as we possibly could in this movie. Every moment needed to remind us of who we are or question of who we are or make us an ache for who we left behind. - Hans Zimmer

In my teenage years, when I was immersed in the comic book world, trying my luck on the otherwise small comics business in Portugal, Jean Giraud was a major influence. I loved his "Incal" series.

For those who didn't know this, Moebius was very influential to Ridley Scott and most notably Blade Runner.

RIP...

And that panel is from a 16-page story with Dan O'Bannon, The Long Tomorrow.

However I think all this posting of pictures only shows what was part of his talent. The guy was a brilliant storyteller.
