• Jean Giraud (Moebius) Major Fatal, Le Garage Hermétique 1976

Le Garage Hermétique: Original Art, Story Page 12 - Jean Giraud (Moebius), 1976 // SOLD: $118,750.00 in 2022

Perhaps the most iconic pages of Moebius' Airtight Garage. The motionless bird, which occupies barely a hundredth of the total surface of the splash page, occupies it, to tell the truth, entirely! 

In Moebius' universe this bird has aroused immense interest and analysis. Frozen in his immobility, he is the supreme, silent, judge of the present reality that surrounds him. And why not dare a subtle parallel between a transition from a typical Giraud image, more concrete on its lower part, to that of a more Moebiusque, a more visionary one as our gaze slides upwards. Sublime. 

Ink on thin paper with an image area of ​​9.75" x 12.5". General handling. This page, having been laminated in the past, has the presence of glue residue on its back. Stains, some minor transparencies, four tiny pinholes. Nothing that a quality restoration cannot definitively solve. Signed. Legendary. In Good condition.
