Product Description

From Amazon

C'est un étrange cavalier. Juché sur un drôle d'oiseau qui semble sorti tout droit de la préhistoire, il traverse des paysages intemporels. Son nom ? Arzach. Nul ne sait d'où il vient, ni quel est son but. Créé en 1975 dans le magazine Métal hurlant, le personnage est issu de l'imagination féconde de l'un des plus fameux auteurs de bande dessinée : Jean Giraud, alias Moebius. Giraud s'est fait connaître avec les aventures du lieutenant Blueberry, un western qu'il a commencé à dessiner d'après les scénarios de Charlier et qu'il poursuit aujourd'hui en solo. En parallèle, il a bâti sous le nom de Moebius une oeuvre personnelle originale, teintée de fantastique et d'onirisme. Avec Arzach, l'auteur a voulu "plonger dans des mondes étranges, au-delà du visible".

Le résultat est envoûtant. Bande dessinée muette, sans dialogues ni scénario, Arzach intrigue, amuse, déconcerte. Et fascine par la puissance du trait de Moebius. Un jalon essentiel de l'histoire de la bande dessinée. --Gilbert Jacques --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Moebius is no more physically, but he will live on forever through his legendary art, that makes him immortal.
i was amazed at unavailability of his definitive art book, for example, Dark horse's recent releases of works of Corben and Bernie Wrightson. I was lucky to buy this book from amazon.ca for 26 bucks, and as soon as i bought the copy, (i think that was the last available one), the price went up to 192 bucks, seriously, some book publisher must come forward and make this legendary artists work available to all the art lovers for affordable price.
this hardcover book i bought, was from a french publisher, so i couldnt understand what was written in the introduction, and some dialogues in the stories inside, but i bought this book for its art only, and i wasnt disappointed, its a large sized book, very nice colours, majority (80 percent) of the book is colour, remaining stories are in black and white, like i said, Moebius's art literally takes you away to his alien worlds, its breathtaking, i am so happy and contend, i finally have his second book at an affordable price in my collection, the first one being Silver Surfer - parable, by Stan Lee and Moebius. Get that one too, its available on amazon at very low price.

Qu'il est agréable de retrouver Giraud libéré, laissant sa fantaisie guider sa plume et le transformer en Moebius. Les planches sont magnifiques mais je m'attendais à plus que ce recueil d'histoires de quelques planches chacune. Mon seul regret pour ne pas mettre 5 étoiles est donc la brièveté de cette incursion dans l'univers onirique de Moebius.

Great print, colors look great. Size of the book does the art work justice. Nice starter book for new Moebius fans and a steal at this price. Arzach doesn't have any dialogue so it doesn't matter that this is in french. Great buy!

French translation, but mostly wordless Sept. 7 2012
By Andrew M. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I picked this up recently from the Canadian Amazon site (for much less than what it is being offered here for). Although there's not much by Moebius that is in print for English territories, the French publication of Arzach is not a bad choice for non-French speaking Moebius enthusiasts since much of the Arzach stories are completely without words. In addition to the Arzach stories, there is an early strip called "La Deviation" which has a lot of French dialog.

Moebius is Awesome! Oct. 19 2013
By murderbymedia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was frantically looking for affordable printings of his work. All the booklets and magazines that came out 20 and 30 years ago during the peak of his fame are now pricey collector's items, so I was very happy to find this compilation of his Arzach series. Some may be disappointed to find that since this is a French publication the text is in it's original French, but I don't mind that as it is his highly detailed ink drawings that I admire and are the main attraction here.
If you are an artist or just a fan this volume is an important addition for your art library!
Moebius was such a prolific illustrator back in the 70's I hope more of his work will be in print soon but I'm happy to have found this volume as this series is considered by many to be his best.
Spoiler-Free Review Feb. 4 2015
By Zac Hanscom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I first started to read Arzach, I had the funny feeling that I'd read it or seen it before. Of course, I had, in a myriad of movies, comics and now even TV shows. Moebius's influence is profound. I'm reminded of Bendis's introduction to The Incal, begging its readers not to rip it off.

I am certain that over time, Moebius will be remembered as Charlie Parker is, and that his imitators will be as forgotten to time as Charlie Parker's imitators have been forgotten despite their superior popularity when Parker was still alive. There's more French text than I expected, but it only spurs me further to get out my old French dictionary and get as much as I can get out of this wonderful volume, which costs less than $5 in Kindle format. *****
Enthralling images! April 13 2015
By David J. Kingman - Published on Amazon.com

I love Jean Giraud's (Moebius) imagery. I think being able to speak French might be a disadvantage in this case. It somehow makes the images more exotic, harking back to the Exoticism of the 19th century. But a pure Exoticism, not a re-imagining of racial stereotypes.
