Moebius, who passed away last week, was one of the most influential comic book artists of the 20th century and beyond, but you could be forgiven for not knowing it. While he contributed to works as mainstream as The Fifth Element and Alien, much of his work was pretty surreal and niche for those not immersed in the world of comic art. If you're curious about the legacy left behind by the artist born Jean Giraud — or if you're already familiar and simply want to revisit a glittering career — a 2007 documentary charting his life is available to view on Vimeo below. Directed by Hasko Baumann, Moebius Redux: A Life In Pictures does a wonderful job of bringing Giraud's work to life through animation, with thoughts and reflections from industry luminaries such as Stan Lee and Philippe Druillet.
