A MOEBIUS APART
Revered French illustrator Jean Giraud dies.

Sad news just off the wire—unique, prolific, and influential French illustrator Jean Giraud has died aged 73 after a long battle with cancer. Giraud broke onto the art scene in 1965, won his first awards by 1973, and by 1975 had adopted the pseudonym Moebius and developed into a graphic arts master. He worked in the comics medium quite a bit as both a writer and artist, and in addition to nine Marvel/Epic graphic novels, and work on longrunning Marvel characters like the Silver Surfer, was also a regular in the pages of the seminal French sci-fi magazine Métal Hurlant—known in the U.S. as Heavy Metal. Aside from all that, he also worked extensively in motion picture production design, and his efforts helped shape films such as Alien, Willow, Tron and The Fifth Element. It’s been a rough week for the art world—Ralph McQuarrie died less than a week ago. We’ve gathered up a few Giraud/Moebius pieces below so those who don’t know this master can get a sense of his singular style.

METAL STORM
Influential French comic magazine paved the way for today’s graphic novels.

Métal Hurlant

Métal Hurlant was published in France by artists Jean Giruad, aka Mœbius, and Philippe Druillet, with the help of writer Jean-Pierre Dionnet and financial director Bernard Farkas. These four became known as Les Humanoides Associés, or United Humanoids, and their magazine focused on serialized sci-fi and fantasy stories paired with high-quality art by geniuses such as Richard Corben, Milo Manara, and Alain Voss. These efforts helped bring comics into the adult mainstream, where they were finally taken seriously as art. So next time you buy a graphic novel like Watchmen or 30 Days of Night, give a nod to Les Humanoides Associés and their creation. More covers below.

The New York Times begins publication of the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret U.S. Department of Defense history of the country's political-military involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967. The papers reveal that the U.S. had deliberately expanded its war with carpet bombing of Cambodia and Laos, coastal raids on North Vietnam, and Marine Corps attacks, and that four presidential administrations, from Truman to Johnson, had deliberately misled the public regarding their intentions toward Vietnam.

David Berkowitz, the New York City serial killer known as Son of Sam, is sentenced to 365 years in prison for six killings.

1963—Buddhist Monk Immolates Himself
In South Vietnam, Buddhist monk Thich Quang Duc burns himself to death by dousing himself with gasoline and lighting a match. He does it to protest the persecution of Buddhists by Ngô Đình Diệm administration, choosing a busy Saigon intersection for his protest. An image of the monk being consumed by flames as he sits crosslegged on the pavement, shot by Malcolm Browne, wins a Pulitzer Prize and becomes one of the most shocking and recognizable photos ever published.
