I was a friend of Moebius;
He always did his best to entertain me with fantastic stories, I will miss him.


ARZAK!
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

I remember reading the incal at my local library when I was a kid, I was fascinated by the complexity of the societies he described and its similiarities with our world.
He was a Master of his craft, which meant he influenced so many directly or indirectly.

I shall miss his stories too.

I was a friend of Moebius. The "Blueberry" series taught me a "comic" is like a movie at times.

      I was a friend of Moebius. I met him once 3 years ago in Poland. He kindly signed my 3 printed characters from Dune without any questions. I remember that there were over 100 fans in this room waiting to talk to him for a few seconds.

      I would have waited a long time just to say thank you to him, you were lucky indeed :)
