Following yesterday’s leak of embargoed press materials, Dark Horse has released official word of their Moebius reprint plans, with confirmation that it’s being done in conjunction with Isabelle Giraud, Moebius’s widow. DH had previously reprinted some of the materials, so doubtless this prior prelationship helped get this much sought after license.
Among comics reprints there are few holy grails left. We’ve finally got Miracleman (and no one cares) we’re getting Master of Kung Fu, and now, perhaps the last great library. Via Dark Horse media partner Bleeding Cool comes word that DH has gained the rights to put out a “lavish series of hardcover volumes” reprinting “the library of Mœbius.” Terse but cherce.

He’s a key influence in the “global fusion” style of comics that is all the rage these days so you’d better get acquainted if you aren’t already.
