Two choices for this classic collaboration between Moebius (Jean Giraud) and Alejandro Jodorowksy: an oversized deluxe hardcover with slipcase limited to 750 copies (Humanoids, Inc., 2010) and a forthcoming more affordable reprint (Titan Books, 2011).
Levitation, 2009. Giclee print.
When I was a preteen looking at Heavy Metal magazine, I instantly became an admirer of Moebius. He has just that right touch, particularly some of his line work, so efficient! He is a master of detail art, but the equilibrium between detail and emptiness has a metaphysics of its very own, the coeval junction of finitude and infinity. And his color choices are always surprising, sometimes in luscious washes with jewel-like sprinkles, sometimes in a more subdued but sublime palette.
Also, Katsuhiro Otomo's manga masterpiece Akira is in the process of being republished by Kodansha Comics/Random House, in six volumes as originally serialized. Volume 5 was recently released. The anime adaptation (1988) is also exceptional, and it closely replicates Otomo's brisk and breathtaking artwork. If you haven't already pored through its 2000+ prodigious pages in its various printings, here's your chance.
