R.I.P. Moebius

What a rotten week.
Another SF visionary leaves us and, again, one who's left an indelible print on fantasy filmwork.
Aside from the aborted "Dune" project, Moebius is well known for being a massive influence on Ridley Scott for the hardware look of "Alien" and you can see here with his pre-production work, Ridely sure stuck to it.
Besides that, of course, he was a brilliant draughtsman and comic book illustrator, a truely unique talent.
Such a loss.
