For the first time in English, Dark Horse Comics will release the Moebius Library: The Major featuring the work of Jean “Moebius” Giraud, with translation by Diana Schutz, and Adam Pruett.
The Major is a psychedelic, sequential romp created by Mœbius between 1997 and 2009, following a production principle that embraces graphic spontaneity and improvisation. The lead character of this pseudo-story, Major Grubert, evolves in a humorous yet philosophical manner, echoing how Mœbius’ creations are treated in the Inside Mœbius series.
Join the Major on his last trip to the nebula of The Airtight Garage, where Mœbius rules as the playful Trickster of legend. What begins as a comical jaunt into unusually profound philosophical questions regarding the nature of existence, eventually winds up as a penetrating examination of the relationship between the author and his creation, the latter of whom must necessarily suffer at the heartless whim of his creator, despite the Major’s passionate desire for real life—and even freedom—beyond these comics!
The Moebius Library: The Major hardcover will arrive on February 6, 2024 with a cover price of $39.99.
